We are now two days on from the now world-renowned infamous fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

But the war against the points decision still rages on as more and more damning evidence emerges to support the claim that the former British world champion should have won the fight.

A graphic has been released of the punches thrown and landed by both fighters.

Movement and landed punches should tell anyone everything they need to know about who a points decision should favour.

The information the graphic shows is pretty much what you would expect.

Wilder is known for a very unorthodox style of punching. Which he does a lot. So much so that in the fight, the Bronze Bomber threw a staggering total of 430 punches.

A wild number in comparison to Fury’s 327 over the 12 rounds.

Though, despite throwing considerably less punches - 103 to be precise - the Gypsy King actually landed more punches than his rival.

In the fight, Fury landed 84 punches in comparison to Wilder’s 71. This a success rate of 26% and 17% respectively.

Fury was making Wilder miss with his surprisingly quick movement for a heavy man of 6ft 9ins.

Fury had a superior landing rate in every single round except the 12th, when Wilder was seconds away from an incredible knockout win.

After Wilder’s explosive round nine, whereby he put fury on the canvas, the American tired out.

Astonishingly, a round later in the 10th, Wilder landed just one punch in the entire three minutes, despite throwing 31.

The most punches thrown in a single round unsurprisingly came from Wilder. He threw as many as 46 in round nine, which seemed to take Fry by surprise.

The least amount of punches thrown by a fighter came in the 12th. Fury has been knocked down and looked to cling on and avoid being hit in which he only threw 18 punches.

In only one of the entire 12 rounds did Fury throw more punches than Wilder, but in only two rounds did Wilder have a better success rate than the Brit.

The major controversy has been surrounding judge Alejandro Rochin.

He scored round three in favour of Wilder, but the graphic shows that the American landed just four punches in that round in comparison to Fury who landed 11.
