Tyson Fury to Donate Purse to Homeless and Poor

Tyson Fury to Donate Purse to Homeless and Poor

"I'm going to give it to the poor and I'm going to build homes for the homeless", Fury said.

Wilder knocked the challenger down twice, including a monster right hand in the 12th round. It was one of the most exciting fights - certainly the most exciting I've seen at heavyweight in America since Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko (in 2003).

Tyson Fury, of England, lies on the canvas after being knocked down by Deontay Wilder during the 12th round of a WBC heavyweight championship boxing match Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, in Los Angeles.

Wilder said being more than 50 pounds lighter than Fury at the time of the fight and the after-effects of surgery on his right arm also contributed to his sub-par performance.

Wilder and Tyson Fury have both hit out recently at Joshua for failing to agree to fight either of them, accusing the Brit of ducking the big fights.

As soon as referee Jack Reiss resumed the fight, Wilder went for the finish, landing a solid left hand, but he was unable to follow up before Fury once again tied him up in a clinch.

"I felt that I threw the more effective punches". All the way up here I got cut. He don't even know how he got up. But with Tyson, he'll travel - he'll go where the money is, for March, April. I don't see why we wouldn't.

"I saw his eyes roll slowly in the back of his head", Wilder said. "Nine out of 10 refs would have waved that off".

Anthony Joshua labelled Wilder a "fool" and called out the American and Fury following the duo's contentious Los Angeles draw.

"I feel like I was the more aggressor", he said. Wilder said he doesn't want to fight anybody else before a rematch. Tyson was robbed of a historical moment, he is the people's champion, we will put it right.

Rights holder BT Sport made the fight in Las Vegas available to United Kingdom customers on its Box Office service via BT TV, Sky TV and Virgin Media for UK£19.95 (US$25.40), while Showtime broadcast the event via pay-per-view (PPV) for US$74.99.

"I wanted to end it on a great note", he said.

In the first meeting, Wilder said he let the pressure of being in his first pay-per-view fight affect him. Neither man looked noticeably rattled or fazed by the trash talk, but fans knew that Wilder vs. Fury had the makings of a heavyweight classic.
