Wilder said. "I will probably end up giving him a second opportunity before any of these so-called best give him even one opportunity because they are anxious about their clean records".

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.

"The only thing against him is he'd had a long lay-off (of nearly three years), and he's not boxed anywhere near the class he needs to now", McDermott, the last fighter said to have beaten Fury, told Press Association Sport.

Fury's shot at completing a remarkable return to the top of world boxing saw him survive the two knockdowns to share an enthralling draw with the WBC heavyweight champion. Showed good heart to get back up.

He had earlier frustrated Wilder with his jab and a succession of accurate right hands, but the American's late attack salvaged his WBC belt on the scorecards.

"That man is a fearsome puncher and I was able to avoid that".

"When you get two warriors, you get a great fight", Wilder said.

"God bless America. The 'Gypsy King" has returned'.

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder. Fury seemed in control when Wilder landed his trademark, a howitzer of a right that landed on the side of Fury's head.

In the ninth, Wilder found success when he walked the challenger down, landing with a right that put Fury on the backseat of his trousers.

The challenger was flat-out on the canvas but somehow found a way to not only recover to beat the count but also box the better of the two men down the stretch.

Each will look at moments in the fight and wish they'd done something differently, but when you're fighting the best in the world, it's not simple to do what you want when you want. He got up and withstood Wilder's assault to try to end the fight.
