Heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought to a split-decision draw Saturday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

He also praised Fury's performance, adding: "I just saw @Tyson_Fury come back from drugs, depression, two years of inactivity and massive weight loss to outbox the WBC Heavyweight champion, who was gifted a draw!"

Fury looked finished when Wilder put him flat on his back with two minutes left in the fight, but he rose and made it to the bell. "I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won the fight, and I believe every man in here thought I won that fight", said Fury.

The good news for LeBron and the rest of us is that both Fury and Wilder suggested they would be keen for a rematch next year.

The victor was projected to face Joshua, the WBA, IBF and WBO title-holder, for the undisputed championship. "I started overthrowing the right hand, and I just couldn't adjust".

Those two 10-8 rounds are enough to skew a fight that Fury may very well have controlled, and that shows up on the cards in scoring that's all over the place. "We're both warriors, but with those two drops I think I won the fight".

Needing an incredible rally late, Wilder retained his title with a 10th-round TKO win over the challenger Ortiz. I came here tonight and I fought my heart out.

Wilder responded with increasingly desperate flurries of big punches, very few of which found their mark. For his part, Fury wasn't initiating much offense either but was still winning rounds with his long jab and occasional right hand.

In the ninth, Wilder found success when he walked the challenger down, landing with a right that put Fury on the backseat of his trousers.

Manny Pacquiao is looking forward to seeing a second chapter in the Wilder-Fury story after watching "two great heavyweights trading shots".

The punch wasn't the biggest of the fight, but Fury was stunned - and he responded by getting up and raising his aggression in an exciting round. "Fury's stock went up!"

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

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

His powers of recovery certainly impressed WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, who compared the Briton to a famous WWE wrestler: "He got knocked out and got up like the Undertaker".
