On this day in 2018, Tyson Fury ‘turned into The Undertaker’ in the 12th round v Deontay Wilder

Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury

That's right folks, it has already been a year since Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder stepped between the ropes for their titanic fight in Los Angeles.

It was one of the most hotly anticipated bouts of the decade and it didn't disappoint as both men got into their work right from the off.

Fury edged the opening skirmishes but Wilder grew into the fight and began looking for ways to exercise his notoriously deadly power game.

Fury dusted himself off and went again though before Wilder, desperate to end the fight via knockout landed a massive right-hand left-hand combination that sent Fury crashing to the canvas.

It was the perfect example of what makes Wilder so dangerous.

At that point, it looked like it was all over as Fury lay sprawled on his back but, miraculously, the Englishman summoned all his strength and hauled himself back into the contest.

Incredible - Fury's resurrection was one of the most iconic moments in boxing.

The final round was one of the most dramatic in history, as two exhausted titans gave all they had left to try and force the win.

It would, however, end in a massive anti-climax as the judges failed to split the two, resulting in a controversial draw.

Boxing fans have been desperate for a rematch ever since but both fighters have simply danced around the idea without anything coming to fruition.

2020, however, could be very different.

Both camps are said to be very keen on a rematch on British shores as early as February.

Finally, Fury and Wilder will get the chance to settle the score and we simply can't wait.
