Tyson Fury pledges to donate the £8million to help the homeless

Even amid the fact that for the first time Fury did not win, the nature of the fight - significantly more entertaining than when he awkwardly defeated Wladimir Klitschko - means Fury's reputation is at its greatest.

That bout ended in the loss of his licence that forced him away from the ring for three years but there is no doubt that one of the modern greats is back. It's not been any secret what I've been doing, I've been living like a rock star. "I go back chin up, chest out".

'Anything is possible with the right mindset'.

The run-up to Deontay Wilder's split decision fight with Tyson Fury may have helped achieve the "mainstream" breakthrough he was so desperate.

Despite there being no undisputed victor, both men gave proper respect following the fight, considering themselves the two best heavyweights in the world while also taunting Antony Joshua. "We're the best in the world". In his worst state, Fury was almost 400 pounds.

Somehow, someway he managed to rise at the exact moment all hope was lost in a moment that properly encapsulated the personal journey that led Fury to the fight.

All the talk is about Wilder v Fury 2 and both boxers made their feelings about Joshua clear. I went to Germany to fight [Wladimir] Klitschko, and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder.




"It's what true champions do", Fury said at a news conference Sunday morning at a downtown hotel.

"I was telling my brothers and my family to keep quiet". I'm staying in downtown LA but if you go five minutes down the road there's like - I don't know - thousands of homeless people.

Fury also showed a salient level of class for not blaming the judges despite a decision that very could have (and likely deserved to) have gone his way.

Judge Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112 for Fury, while Alejandro Rochin favored Wilder 115-111.

Speaking the day after the bout, Fury said: "To be honest, I've never seen a worse decision in my life". For his part, Fury wasn't initiating much offense either but was still winning rounds with his long jab and occasional right hand. "He can't move like me, he'd have been nailed!"

It may have been only fitting that Fury would headline the first heavyweight title bout on PPV in America since Lennox Lewis-Mike Tyson in 2002. Three years later, the impossible almost happened again. He did say in the changing room before the fight, "If anyone goes down I will give you chance to prove you're okay".

Unfortunately for Wilder, he appeared to gas himself out going for the finish that he didn't get after the knockdown.
