Tyson Fury serenades media with 'American Pie' song in press conference

Yep, Tyson Fury is essentially boxing world's answer to The Undertaker.

Wilder managed to knock down Fury twice during the fight, once in the final round. Was a draw a fair result?

Wilder also sent Fury to the floor in the ninth round with a right hand behind the ear and a short left hook.

"I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight", said Wilder (40-0-1), adding that he started slow and rushed his punches in a sub-par performance.

Fury, of course, did not agree with this outcome.

"When you're on your back flat out, you don't know what your legs will be like", he said.

"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch", Fury said.

"I don't know what fight them judges were watching". "They probably would have smashed this arena up if I would have instigated it". But I got up. Never before, has an American holding the Heavyweight strap achieved so much with so little fanfare - but this fight has seemingly altered his course for the better, for even the casual boxing fan was bewitched by Wilder's otherworldly charisma, and intrigued by his knockout potential.

"I don't think I could handle another fight like that!"

Lewis, whose first fight with Evander Holyfield ended in a controversial draw in March 1999, empathised with Fury but nevertheless praised his fellow Briton for his showing at the Staples Center. All the media will report bad stuff. I came here tonight and I fought my heart out. "I'm the lineal champion of the world, I'm not just going to lay down and not get back up". He should be banned from boxing.

"Rochin, you need sacking, or to go to Specsavers, mate".

'It has really opened my eyes to a lot of things and I'm leaving as a better person.

Without that punch, it is likely that the judges wouldn't have dared to take the step of gifting Wilder a draw.

He still has the green belt but the world knows it belongs to Tyson Fury.

Bermane Stiverne met with his comeuppance in the end, too, when he was savagely knocked out by Wilder when the pair met for a rematch.

The Bronze Bomber made contact first with a left hand to the body and the American went swinging in early in the first round.

Fury gave credit to veteran referee Jack Reiss.

"You can't go swimming and not get wet".

"I thought "he ain't getting up". There were about eight thousand travelers and Brits who have come from around the world, 10 thousand", Fury said. "But you must prove you're okay, otherwise I will stop the fight".

"I gave myself the time".
