Tyson Fury Rises from Knockdown in Ring and in Life



Forget about the fight results for a second. Tyson Fury is a winner.


Fury may have gotten a draw in his first lineal heavyweight world title defense against titleholder Deontay Wilder in very entertaining and dramatic showdown that lived up to the hype on Saturday night at the Staples Center, but that was only a boxing match.


Though Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored the fight 115-111 for Wilder, Canadian judge Robert Tapper 114-112 for Fury, and British judge Phil Edwards 113-113, Fury walked out of the arena with his head held high, and for good reason.
