Judge Who Scored Wilder vs. Fury A Draw Is Getting Roasted Right Now

For now, there is a consensus belief among fans and pundits alike that Tyson Fury was robbed of the WBC heavyweight belt. After imposing his will in the early rounds and managing to avoid Deotay Wilder’s knockout power, the 30-year-old Briton was clearly the winner of what many called as the boxing fight of the year. 

But in an expected turn of events, a judge of the fight scored a surprising 115-111 tally in favour of the defending champion, which became a subject of debate considering how Fury outboxed Wilder in the entire match, with Fury’s trainer labelling him as “a sick, sick man.”

‘I Should Have Won The Fight’

Despite failing to recapture the WBC heavyweight belt he won in 2015 against Wladimir Klitschko, ‘The Gypsy King’ did not fail to give fans one of the best highlights of the show. Fury was leading in all scorecards coming into the 12th round. He can almost smell the blood in the water until a vicious knockdown in the final frame, his second in the match, gave Wilder another sign of life.

Fury was down for a few seconds and the defending champion thought he had knocked him out cold. To the delight of many, Fury took a page on the Undertaker’s playbook as he rose from the ashes and came back to finish the fight. The lineal heavyweight champ has accepted the result and assured that a rematch is a big possibility.

“I felt I should have won the fight, but I’m not going to sit here and complain. God bless Deontay Wilder. I am going to remain professional. God love America, the Gypsy King is back. 100 per cent, we’ll do it. I would love for it to be my next fight. Why not? Let’s give the fans what they want to see. It was a great fight and let’s do it again. It doesn’t matter to me where we do it.”

A Sick Man

Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored 115-11 in favour of ‘The Bronze Bomber’, Robert Tapper of Canada tallied 114-110, going to Fury’s way, while Phil Edwards of the United Kingdom had it knot-tied at 113-113, resulting to a split draw.

While Fury is cool about the result, his trainer, Ben Davison was not satisfied by how things were scored and called one of the judge ‘a sick man.’

“The American man got out of the ring and said, ‘It’s fine, they can do it again. It’s fine’. What do you mean it’s fine? You’ve just taken away the biggest comeback not in boxing history but in sports history from a man that has come back from hell. And it’s fine? You have got to be a sick, sick man to do that. A sick, sick man.”

“We didn’t come here for money and we didn’t come here to get through the fight. We came here to win and we won that fight. I’m absolutely sick and gutted,” Davison ended.
