Great fight from Wilder and Fury. But if one guy goes unconscious the fight is over.

    Yeah there are people arguing it was a 'flash KO' but when you look like Fury did for a good 3-4 seconds its not so much a quick flash KO or knockdown more just a KO.

    Will be interesting how they build the rematch but seriously it just seems ridiculous Fury or his team claiming he won or was robbed when he was rendered unconscious and KOd for a few seconds even if he has amazing recovery.

    If he had somehow 'won' on points it would have been the most ridiculous HW championship win in history, getting ktfo and 'winning'.

    Draw is really a good result all round and set up the rematch. Fury is the one with something to prove next time, even if he survives and outpoints Wilder he got put to sleep first time he needs to try to KO Wilder in the rematch and as long as Wilder is in there he is a danger even in the last round.

    whenever I see some retard saying fury got 'put to sleep' it makes me think they're trying hard to compensate for the fact that fat, off for 3 yrs fury embarrassed a very in shape wilder who was at the top of his game for the majority of 12 rounds .. that's all I see .. how do you get knocked out and then just pop up with no ill effects and start backing down the other fighter and landing shots ?

    good on fury for coming back to life, but if you get knocked flat on your back and are limp for 3-4 seconds, that’s a knockout.

    good job coming back from getting knocked out tho.

    I'll forever be a fan of Fury after this fight. He showed a champion heart to get up after those KDs, even winning the rest of the round imo.

    where is your proof that he was knocked out? that he didn't open his eyes wide for inspection? :D

    The ref could've counted to 5 then waved it off but didn't and Fury beat the count. Not KO'd at all

    Dude do you really think you can be knocked clean out, then be on your feet out boxing your opponent within 30 seconds lol. You don't overcome a full concussion this way or so quickly. He was hurt and beat the count.

    I don't even think he did more damage in all honesty looking at the fighters in the post fight presser

    True, that is why I said at least in America. These other countries will have to start having bigger venues that can compete with Vegas. Vegas has been considered the fight capital of the world. There is no reason this HW title fight should not have been in Vegas. Floyd and McGregor was in Vegas. That is telling me that perhaps pure boxing isn't the draw it use to be?

    The fans I've spoken to who don't like boxing say it's boring, and takes too long. They want to see action. They want to see someone dominated. Therefore, they watch MMA. They always criticize Floyd for winning on points, even if it were a masterful boxing performance.

    Yeah it had nothing to do with him fighting out of his natural weight class or anything.

    Yeah, Fury was just joking around, putting on a show for the fans. Wilder has no power.

    You now see why boxing has captured the attention of poets since time immemorial. They see it as a metaphor for life, the whole down not out thing. A man can be down today but rise tomorrow. It show cases the ability of man to live above his past. This is why boxing is and will always we the king of combat sports. It highlights the greatness of man in a way no sport can.

    None of the combat sport are designed to life and death struggles ( sadly because of their nature men do die. However is not the intent of the combatants) . Seasoned men know and understand what life and death struggle looks like and want no part of it. The greatest men of War loath it.
