Wilder (40-0-1) floored Fury (27-0-1) in the ninth and final rounds, yet Fury clearly outboxed Wilder for large portions of their meeting at Staples Center.

Speaking at the post-fight press conference, Deontay Wilder opened up on his 12th-round knockdown of Tyson Fury.

The three judges were divided on the outcome, with one scoring it 115-111 for Wilder, another 114-110 for Fury and the third 113-113.

Both fighters preserved their unbeaten records with the draw, but both thought they had done enough to earn the victory in the bout, which played out before 17,698 fans in downtown Los Angeles. "I thought I won the fight".

Should Wilder lose his title to Fury on December 1, Fury must give Wilder a contractually obligated rematch; however, a rematch may still happen even if Wilder wins.

"The AJ fight is up to them, they have to stop being cowards, we are moving on from him", Wilder said.

"This has been a great night for the sport, for heavyweight boxing, and heavyweight boxing in the USA", said Costello. "I started overthrowing the right hand and I just couldn't adjust". It doesn't matter to me where we do it.

Wilder went for broke in the 12th round and landed a huge right hand and a clean left hook to put Fury flat on his back as the crowd erupted.

A right hand sent Fury rocking backwards towards the deck and a brutal left hand on the way down appeared to be the coup de grace for the challenger.

"Bless Wilder, thank you for the opportunity D. God bless you, and god bless America".

Instead, the main talking point from a thrilling contest was Fury's miraculous recovery after being knocked down by Wilder in the 12th round.

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

Fury struggled to generate consistent offence until a strong sixth round, likely costing himself early rounds.

Deontay Wilder reflects on his fight with Tyson Fury, saying that he failed to make some adjustments, but still felt that he should have won the fight. But early in the ninth, Fury went down when he absorbed a shot to the top of the head from Wilder.

"Fury is very fast with the jab and in pulling off combinations, Deontay is depending on a big punch", was the correct analysis from Floyd Mayweather on American television during the fifth round break. Although he didn't land it with full force, he dropped Fury, who did not seem badly hurt.

The fight attracted the celebrity attention expected in Hollywood from actors and athletes alike.

In Los Angeles, many stars of the boxing world made their way down the red carpet to enjoy the event such as Gennady Golovkin, Errol Spence Jr, Mikey Garcia, Shawn Porter, Floyd Mayweather and Evander Holyfield.

On the undercard, Jarrett Hurd defended his WBA and IBF 154-pound belts with a fourth-round stoppage of Jason Welborn.

Cuba's Luis Ortiz knocked down Travis Kauffman three times before stopping him late in the 10th round, and British heavyweight Joe Joyce improved to 7-0 with a first-round stoppage of Joe Hanks.
