Wilder, who retains his WBC belt after 12 rounds of pulsating action, had Fury on the canvas twice at the Staples Center in Los Angeles but was unable to deliver the knockout he had promised his fans. Judge Phil Edwards and The Associated Press scored it a 113-113 draw, with Wilder's knockdowns compensating for Fury's superior technique.

The 30-year-old still found cause for optimism after another impressive display at world title level, over three years after he took Wladimir Klitschko's world titles with a points win.

The British boxer was the better man throughout, making the American miss over and over.

But the jiving puncher looked stunned to glance back across the right at the spot where he'd dropped Fury to see the "Gypsy King" getting back to his feet. "I came here tonight and I fought my heart out".

"We're on away soil", he said.

That however, is yet to transpire after Tyson Fury's return from his health-induced hiatus from the sport, and this weekend's blockbuster match-up in one that has very much crept up on the sporting world. "And it brought me back". I got knocked down but I still believe I won the fight.

During the twelfth and final round between long-out-of-the-game Tyson Fury and now undefeated Deontay Wilder, Fury was dealt a vicious combination of blows, culminating in a hook that initially seemed to knock him out cold. "I thought I won the fight".

In front of a 17,698-strong attendance, both fighters entertained from the opening bell when they both threw threatening punches and Wilder landed a hurtful right as they briefly fought toe-to-toe.

"I would love for it to be my next fight", Wilder said.

Birmingham's Welborn, 32, aggressively came forward early on and peppered the IBF and WBA world champion in the fourth round with his trademark combinations.

"Every time a lineal champion has come back from years out of the ring he has been destroyed", Fury said.

He said winning would be "the first chapter of a new storybook, the beginning of a new life, a new era of Tyson Fury".

"As long as I'm focused for the full duration of the fight, I don't see him landing any punches at all", Fury said.

Wilder, who remains unbeaten after 41 fights, immediately called for a rematch. By the end of the round, they were going toe-to-toe as Fury regained his wits.

"I'll be satisfied with (either Fury or Joshua), to be honest".
