Fury: Joshua would have been nailed by Wilder

With Ricky Hatton and Freddie Roach joining trainer Ben Davison in the corner, Fury defied his lack of action - he had fought just 14 rounds since that famous night against Klitschko in Dusseldorf - to impress from the opening bell.

"I don't think Wilder wanted to come to London, that's why Tyson (travelled)".

With two minutes remaining and out on his feet, Fury managed the unthinkable and survived the round.

Britain's Jason Welborn suffered defeat in pursuit of two light-middleweight world titles as reigning champion Jarrett Hurd secured a fourth-round stoppage in Los Angeles.

With the vast majority of the fans inside Staples Center and across social media believing Fury had done more than enough to win, the fight ended without a victor.

"It has to be down to Tyson, but from my perspective, I'd love the rematch", Warren said.

Fury added, encouraging the press to sing before dropping the microphone.

Heavyweight legend Lennox Lewis made the comparison to his first fight with Evander Holyfield back in March 1999, which also ended in the same result, though the former won their rematch 10 months later.

"I had a holy hand upon me tonight", Fury said. After overcoming his personal demons, Fury returned to the ring earlier this year following a near three-year layoff and has claimed victory in two fights as he gets set to challenge for a heavyweight title once again. We want the fight.

However, Fury had to climb off the canvas for a second time in a dramatic finish to proceedings, showing tremendous powers of recovery when initially appearing to be out cold from a right-left combination.

"Well the future of boxing is brighter because the heavyweight division right now is so vibrant". Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) climbed back to his feet and eventually cleared his head, but it seemed as though all momentum had shifted in Wilder's favor. By the end of the round, they were going toe-to-toe as Fury regained his wits. DiBella and Finkel admitted they had already started climbing towards the ring in expectation the fight was over.

"Tyson's eyes rolled in his head". I showed good heart to get up.

Fury went on to say that he'd found the energy to get up because he's recently persevered through so much; weighing 400 pounds and caught in a cycle of drug and alcohol addiction in recent years, he'd considered suicide.

"When I was down, I wasn't just down on that canvas for me and my family", Fury said.

"I couldn't stay down".

"What sort of sick people have you got to be".
