Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder finally got into the ring last night, and it was a draw. Seriously.
Deontay Wilder knocked Tyson Fury down twice in last night’s heavyweight world championship fight in Los Angeles, including a devastating 12th-round blow that looked like it would give the undefeated Wilder his 40th knockout in 41 fights. But as the American celebrated, Fury—who had outboxed Wilder for much of the fight—somehow go back on his feet, and the judges ultimately called the fight a split-decision draw.
Twitter had much to say about the outcome. The majority of fans think despite getting dropped twice, Tyson Fury should have got the W.
Yet another L for the sport of boxing? See the best reactions in the gallery.

Years out of the game.
Struggling physically and mentally.
Works his bollocks off. Road to redemption.
Fights the unbeaten Deontay Wilder in Wilder's home country.
Clearly wins. Would be one of the greatest comeback stories in history

✨ Errol Spence’s reaction to watching Deontay Wilder’s final-round knockdown of Tyson Fury from ringside: “I don’t know how the hell he got up. That was some gypsy s*** going on. He raised up from the dead.”— Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) December 2, 2018
A massive well done to @Tyson_Fury in my book he beat @BronzeBomber hands down. And that is including the two knockdowns he received. The judge needs to be sat and held accountable for his scorecard. This kind of thing gives our sport a bad name. #stinks— Johnny (@SkyJohnnyNelson) December 2, 2018
