Wilder keeps title after Fury draw
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought to a split draw at Los Angeles, with Wilder retaining his World Boxing Council heavyweight title after knocking down his British challenger twice.
Wilder (40-0-1) floored Fury (27-0-1) in the ninth and 12th rounds, yet Fury clearly outboxed Wilder for large portions of the remainder of their entertaining showdown.
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. In other news:
• Oleksandr Gvozdyk stopped Adonis Stevenson at 2:49 of the 11th round at Quebec City to take the World Boxing Council light heavyweight title from the Canadian. Stevenson, 41, was put on a stretcher after the fight and left Videotron Centre in an ambulance.
