Tyson Fury survived a final-round knockdown as he was forced to settle for a draw with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles.

Fury clambered up from the canvas and seemed to have done enough to earn a points win, with judge Robert Tapper scoring it 114-112 in his favour, but Alejandro Rochin made it 115-111 for Wilder, and the 113-113 from British official Phil Edwards resulted in a split decision draw.

The 30-year-old had earlier defied fears about his long break from boxing, frustrating the American with his jab until he was floored in the ninth round, and Fury somehow made it through the 12th after being dumped heavily on his back.
