Boxing: 'I thought Fury won the fight' - Bob Sheridan

From Morning Report, 8:27 am on 3 December 2018

American boxer Deontay Wilder has retained his WBC heavyweight title after a thrilling split decision draw with Britain's Tyson Fury in Los Angeles. One judge scored the fight 115-111 to Wilder, a second scored it 114-112 to Fury, while a third judge called it even at 113 each. Fury controlled much of the bout, but was knocked down twice including by a brutal left-right combination that looked to have ended the fight in the final round. Both fighters preserved their unbeaten records with the draw, and they're both eager for a rematch. Veteran boxing commentator Colonel Bob Sheridan was watching the bout. He talks to Susie Ferguson.
