"We're on away soil, I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won that fight", said Fury.
Then, as promoter Frank Warren revealed that discussions for a rematch are already underway, Fury regained his diplomatic stance of the night before: 'I don't want to say any more which might take away from a great fight nor from Wilder as a true champion and fighting man.
"I fought back from suicide, from mental anxiety and depression".
"When I rush my punches like that I'm never accurate". "Just goes to show how hard it is for a Brit to come to America and take someone's belt even though that's what we clearly saw".
"Many men probably wouldn't have gotten up from the knockdown but I did and that's what it is".
After twelve rounds, the judges scored the match 115-111 for Wilder, 114-110 for Fury and 113-113, leading to a split draw decision.
Having shed 10 stone in preparation for the fight and shaken suicidal thoughts, the "Gypsy King" is now intent on helping others overcome their battles.
Israel's Netanyahu should be indicted for corruption, police say
The prime minister has argued that he is the victim of a left-wing and media conspiracy to topple his conservative government. They also recommended his wife, Sara Netanyahu , face charges of bribery, fraud, breach of trust and obstruction of evidence.
Wilder, wearing a new gold mask and crown, was accompanied by J-Rock to the ring whilst fireworks went off and trumpeters played him into the arena. "Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet". "Let's see what we do next".
Speaking after the fight, a bruised Fury made an impassioned speech into the camera that will no doubt motivate countless viewers to keep battling their own demons.
"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch". "And it brought me back". Opinions were divided on the judges' decision, however, with some claiming that Fury was robbed of one of the greatest comebacks in history despite two knockdowns.
Fury responded admirably to a big step up in competition after a lengthy absence and two warmup bouts, but Wilder got him in just enough trouble to earn a draw.
He had earlier frustrated Wilder with his jab and a succession of accurate right hands, but the American's late attack salvaged his WBC belt on the scorecards. Fury used his twitchy movement and near-constant feints to disrupt the rhythm of Wilder, whose trademark looping punches rarely found their mark.
"It's an iconic comeback isn't it?"
"Everybody out there suffering from the same problems, I did it for you".
