Fury: Joshua would have been nailed by Wilder

Wilder, Fury draw in epic heavyweight showdown

"The world knows I won the fight".

Fury wasn't asked about the pledge following his controversial draw with Wilder.

Fury rinsed the judge a day after the bout too. "I've got good fighting spirit".

Reflecting on what unfolded at Los Angeles' Staples Center, the 30-year-old then said: "It was a great performance, if I do say so myself". Even if I hadn't been knocked down twice he would still have had me losing.

In terms of the jab, Fury connected with 46 of his 223 attempts, compared to 40 of 248 by his opponent and in power shots, it was 38 from 104 for the Gypsy King, compared with 31 out of 182 for the reigning champion.

"I literally saw this man's eyes roll into the back of his head, and I thought it was over".

He didn't look troubled once on his feet, but how he managed to get back up after being knocked down in the 12th is anyone's guess.

But Fury found another explanation.

Fury rose at a count of eight, and had been controlling most of the action up until that point, although Wilder seemed to nick the championship rounds, perfectly illustrated when he floored Fury heavily in the twelfth. Like on the brink of suicide.

On the first occasion, the fall was not as extreme as in the final round but as he has displayed in the past, it appears that heavy falls only serve to strengthen the resolve of Fury. And I come in here - I said to Deontay, 'I'm sorry for what's happened to you.' Deontay's got the text and I'm sure he'll tell you the same.

Fury also said he hopes to arrange a rematch. He had been out of boxing since November 2015, when he pulled a stunning upset of longtime champion Wladimir Klitschko. Two and a half years out of the ring, 28 stone ballooned, mental health problems, I've just showed the world tonight that everyone suffering from mental health - you can come back.

A 2.5-year hiatus from the boxing ring ended in June.

The American didn't win more than four rounds (that is being generous), although in the ninth and 12th, he did knock Fury to the canvas.

At the weigh-in on Friday, Wilder wore a black mask and weighed at 96kg. We're both warriors, but with those two drops I think I won the fight.

Eventually, Wilder's thunderous punches landed.

But like o'l Adonis Creed, Fury had no quit in him. I came here tonight and I fought my heart out.

'Anything is possible with the right mindset'. If you believe in yourself and you sacrifice and you dedicate with the right help. And I just wanna say that it was a great opportunity. I was representing everybody around the world. I never had it easy, I had to work for whatever I got.

"I couldn't stay down".
