Last time I scored this fight, I had it 115-111 to Fury but I remember it being close. I’m gonna rescore it to see if I still agree with my pick.

Round 1 - This was a close one. Wilder was winning the round up until the last 10 seconds. Whilst he wasn’t landing anything super clean, Fury pretty much wasn’t throwing anything. However, at the end of the round Fury unleashed a combination that contained the best punches of the round. I think that definitely outdid Wilder’s work for the round. This was a close but decisive win for Fury.

Round 2 - This was an incredibly close one that I think you could give to either guy but I think Wilder just about nicked it. This was similar to the first round, just the roles had reversed. I’d say Fury was winning the round up until the last 10 seconds when Wilder landed a really solid right hand which I’d say outdid Fury’s work as he didn’t land many super clean shots.

Round 3 - A pretty convincing Fury win. Yet again, it was close for the majority of the round but then Fury landed a really solid 2 punch combo that split through Wilder’s guard. Wilder tried to land some big shots but they all either missed or were blocked by Fury.

Round 4 - Another very close round that could be given to either guy. However, I think Fury just about won it. Wilder landed the best punches of the round imo, but Tyson was a lot more accurate landing solid shots to the face and body. Whilst Wilder did land the best shots like I said, I believe the work Fury did just about outdid Wilder’s.

Round 5 - On previous occasions watching this fight, I remember this being a fairly convincing Fury win. But this time I honestly thought it was a lot closer than I remember. Fury landed more punches than Wilder but if you look a decent amount of them were blocked by Wilder. Fury blocked a lot of Wilder’s as well but he still got a few decent ones in. Because of this, I think you could give this round to either guy but I again think Fury just snatched it as he was busier for a lot of the round.

Round 6 - The first convincing Fury win since the third. He unleashed a great combination towards the middle of the round which ,whilst it didn’t look like everything landed too clean, definitely won him the round as Wilder didn’t respond with anything too significant.

Round 7 - I’m surprised there’s some people saying Wilder won this one, I honestly thought it might’ve been Fury’s most convincing win yet. He landed some great right hands that split through Wilder’s guard which definitely got him the win for this one. Wilder tried to respond but ,like a few of the previous rounds, a lot of his shots either missed or were blocked by Fury.

Round 8 - This round was somewhat close. Wilder did land some decent right hands throughout and not all of Fury’s jabs seemed to land clean. However, it was still a decisive victory for him. The jabs he did land definitely outdid all of Wilder’s work for the round.

Round 9 - The thing is, this round would’ve been close if it wasn’t for the knockdown. Wilder was a lot busier but most of his shots either weren’t landing clean or weren’t landing at all. Fury didn’t land too much but a lot of his punches were landing quite flush. However, Wilder did get the knockdown which I’d say accumulated more damage than all of Fury’s shots. That combined with the few solid punches he did land afterwards made this a 10-8 for Wilder imo.
Round 10 - Dominant Fury round. Probably his best one of the fight imo. He just outboxed Wilder all round pretty much. I think Deontay might’ve been tired from his attack the pervious round but that’s no excuse for his poor defense in this. He had his guard too wide as to where Fury was able to constantly break through it.

Round 11 - Last time I scored this fight, I thought this round could be given to either guy. However, after watching it this time I think it was a close but decisive win for Tyson. He seemed to just outbox Wilder for the majority of the round. Wilder did unleash a flurry towards the middle but most of his punches missed again. He did land some good shots towards the end of the round but it seemed Fury responded with some good shots of his own, outdoing Wilder’s work for the round (although it was hard to tell how good Fury’s shots really were because of the terrible camera angle.)

Round 12 - Both fighters deserve huge credit for this one. That knockdown from Wilder was brutal. You could tell he knew he needed a knockout to win and absolutely went for it. How Fury got up I’ll never know. It was reminiscent of Holmes VS Shavers 2, when Holmes got dropped by a similar shot and was able to get up and stop Earnie. Fury landed some great shots and even taunted Wilder after being dropped, not even seeming to be dazed. Both fighters landed great shots this round, although it’s pretty apparent it was a Wilder win. He landed some good punches and the knockdown just sealed the deal, completely outdoing Fury’s work this round. Still, what a round this was.

So I have the same score as last time. 115-111 to Fury with the exact same rounds given to both guys. However, my opinions on some of the rounds have changed.

I think rounds 2,4,5 could be given to either guy. If we give Wilder the benefit of the doubt and give him all 3 of these rounds (alongside the knockdown rounds) then I would have the fight as a draw.

Overall, whilst I think a draw is definitely generous for Deontay, I don’t think it’s a straight up robbery as I think it’s somewhat realistic. The 115-111 scorecard for Wilder is definitely incompetence/corruption thought. I really struggle to find 6 rounds to give Wilder let alone 7.

The whole ‘this is the worst robbery ever’ thing is BS in my opinion. There’s been WAY worse decisions in the past. I don’t even think this was the worst decision in heavyweight championship history. I watched Lewis VS Holyfield 1 yesterday and that one was much worse.

I think this was a decent performance by Fury. Not his best but not his worst. He did a great job of outboxing Wilder for a lot of the rounds and tried to not go overboard in order to conserve energy. This fight also showcased how great his heart is as I think most other heavyweights wouldn't have gotten up from a punch like that one in the 12th round. However, whilst I was praising how he didn’t go overboard in any rounds, I still think he should’ve tried to increase the tempo a bit in order to win it more convincingly. Some rounds were close and if Fury had done just a bit more it would’ve been a definite win for him.

This was a pretty poor performance from Wilder. It almost seemed like he tried to outbox the boxer when he should’ve been putting on pressure from the opening bell. He showcased his devastating punching power in this fight and I honestly think he could’ve KO’d Fury had he been putting more pressure on early. Alas, you still have to give him credit for putting in a great last ditch effort in the final round. He came desperately close but just about fell short.

I’ve seen a lot of people call this the FOTY for 2018 but I disagree. It was pretty boring for the first 11 rounds. There were some good moments here and there but both guys weren’t very active for a lot of the fight.

Now the 12th round is a different story. Both guys perfectly showed off their incredible attributes. Wilder scored what would’ve been KO of the year if Fury didn’t get up imo and Fury was able to comeback and land some great shots after that knockdown. Definitely round of the year for me.

I think this fight will be remembered for a long time to come. Whilst I think the second and third fights were better, there’s no denying the significance of this event.
