The 30-year-old excelled throughout, impressively recovering from two knockdowns C your second remarkably heavy C but was harshly made the winner with only one of several three ringside judges after countless 115-111 (in Wilder’s favour), 112-114 and 113-113.

Victory can have represented the culmination of just one of the highest quality comebacks from the history of the activity but, despite a rematch inevitable, Fury’s promoter as well as BBBC will shift to protect their fighter’s interests.

“I’ve spoken to Charlie Giles, president of the British Boxing Board of Control, and they also, in conjunction with us, will likely be corresponding with the WBC asking they look at what’s gone on there and then to order the rematch,” Warren said.

“The Mexican judge (Alejandro Rochin) have it wrong. I genuinely feel sorry for Tyson. He’s been robbed but it wasn’t right.”

Even amid the truth that for the first time Fury could not win, the actual from the fight C much more entertaining than whilst awkwardly defeated Wladimir Klitschko C means Fury’s reputation is at its greatest.

Reflecting on the amount unfolded at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, the 30-year-old then said: “It was a great performance, generally if i do say so myself. I’m delighted together with the fight but, put it that way, generally if i didn’t get knocked down twice in the fight, during one of your judge’s scorecards I’d have still lost, so he needs banning from boxing forever since he clearly can’t judge.

“Rochin, you need sacking so they can drop by Specsavers, mate. Even without knockdowns he still had me losing the battle.

“I’ve never witnessed a worse decision in doing my life. I not really know what fight those judges were watching. The guy who gave it 115-111, I am not sure what he was watching. It ain’t the first time it has happened.

“That’s badly a choice because the first Lennox Lewis-Evander Holyfield fight (in 1999), but who shall we be held to say anything? I’m just a fighter, I’m not much of the judges. You are unable to take anything clear of me or Wilder; we done good. [But] it’s stuff like this which provides boxing an undesirable name.”
