Deontay Wilder posts video that ‘proves’ Tyson Fury didn’t make 10 count after knockdown

Deontay Wilder has posted a video on social media he says proves Tyson Fury failed to make the 10 count after being knocked down in the 12th round of their epic heavyweight battle.

Wilder walked away from the Staples Center still the WBC heavyweight champion, after a controversial draw with the Gypsy King.

Fury believes that he was the winner despite twice being knocked down, and was denied “the greatest comeback in boxing history”.

The judges were split on the scorecards, with one scoring it 115-111 in favour of Wilder, another 114-112 for Fury and the third 113-113.

But Bronze Bomber Wilder, who came into the fight with a 40-0 record – 39 wins by way of knockout – claimed he “definitely won the fight”.

Wilder says he was the "more aggressive fighter and landed the more effective punches".

The two look destined to face off in a rematch in 2019 with the US champion stating he has no interest in meeting fellow champion Anthony Joshua until he has proven his dominance over Fury.

"I’m ready whenever he’s ready to do it. I’m ready to give the fans what they want to see and end this talk once and for all," Wilder said.

"I don’t want any other fights to happen between him and I (meeting again)."

There looked no chance of Fury recovering

Already Wilder has set about disproving the theory that Fury should have been crowned the victor – with many at the fight reckoning Fury was the better fighter across the bout.

Fury himself believes he won 10 of the 12 rounds.

But Wilder believes Fury should never have seen the final bell, and has posted a video on his Instagram which he believes shows the Brit was not back on his feet ahead of the referee’s 10 count.

"#AndStill Keep the vids coming for the Sick MFs That hate I won, The Blind MFs that can’t face reality and the MFs that just don’t want to see US succeed"

Wilder had previously stated on Fury’s remarkable rise off the mat: "I saw his eyes roll slowly in the back of his head.

"Many people felt that should have been waved off. Nine out of 10 refs would have waved that off."

In the days since Wilder-Fury, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has been looking to negotiate a historic unification bout between the two heavyweight champs.

But Joshua now faces being frozen out and missing out on his desire to unify the division – at least in the first half of 2019 – with Wilder-Fury II having captured the imagination of the boxing world.
