Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury fight to draw in heavyweight title bout

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury drew their WBC Heavyweight Championship bout

Both fighters are expected to meet again in a rematch, with Fury determined to prove himself as the rightful victor in a second fight.

Inside the Staples Center (9 p.m. ET, Showtime PPV), WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will defend his title against former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

Fury looked finished when Wilder put him flat on his back with two minutes left in the fight, but he rose and made it to the bell.

WANTED: New host for 2019 AFCON, SA to step in?
The 2013 finals were to be held in Libya but the security situation there meant they were moved to South Africa . A new bid, according to CAF, will be opened and a new host will be announced in a month's time - December 31.

The showdown between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury had no victor as one judge said Fury won, one said Wilder, and the third ruled it a draw. I went to Germany to fight Klitschko and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder.

There is, however, doubt as to whether Wilder would take a rematch. "It was a great fight and let's do it again".

Should Wilder lose his title to Fury on December 1, Fury must give Wilder a contractually obligated rematch; however, a rematch may still happen even if Wilder wins. But a huge straight right from Fury gave the champion something to think about, and was perhaps the Englishman's best punch at that point. Early on Wilder just missed with some big punches but as the rounds progressed Wilder started lunging more and missing by wider margins.

The Utah Jazz swap Alec Burks for Kyle Korver
In three seasons with Cleveland, he averaged 9.3 points per game, mostly scoring his points from jumpers and three-point shots. In 2009-10, Korver set a single-season record by shooting a scorching 53.6 percent from deep in 52 games for the Jazz.

On the way down the American caught the challenger with a left and Fury seemed to be knocked down and out.

Until a sensational final round knockdown from Wilder, Fury appeared to be heading towards what would have been a remarkable upset.

But Fury gradually grew in confidence, regularly taunting Wilder by throwing his arms up in the air or behind his back. Big up to Tyson Fury who never ceases to amaze me. With a large contingent of British fans in the audience of 17,698 roaring him on, a victory suddenly seemed within reach.
