Tyson Fury pulls stunner like Undertaker, somehow gets up after 12th-round knockdown
Tyson Fury somehow got up after a monster 12th-round knockdown by Deontay Wilder during their heavyweight fight on Saturday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Fury, by many accounts, had fought a strong fight most of the way and avoided many of the big shots the Bronze Bomber had taken at him. However, Wilder caught him with a punch for a knockdown in the 9th. Then in the 12th, Wilder crushed Fury with a two-punch combo to send him to the canvas.
Fury looked like he was out for the count, but he suddenly sat up out of nowhere to beat the count.
Fans were stunned, with many comparing his response to The Undertaker.

I cannot think of a shot in boxing that crumpled a competitor like the one Wilder detonated on Fury's jaw where the competitor managed to survive. Fury's body language went from concussed to just fine. Unbelievable.

Fury had no business getting back up from that. Wilder unleashed one hell of a combo. #WilderFury

Fury beating the 10-count and making it up to finish the fight allowed him to change the outcome from a loss to a draw. One judge had the fight scored in favor of Wilder (115-111), another for Fury (114-112), and a third had it as a draw (113-113), making the result a draw.
Fury looked like a magician with the way he bounced off the canvas after that knockdown.
With the draw, both fighters remain unbeaten, paving the way for a rematch.
