The middle judge seems to struggle with basic maths

The British judge was from Preston :(

I listened live on BBC5 live. The commentary team had Fury up in virtually every round, even in the 9th and possibly 12th.

Apart for the knockdown rounds I struggled to give wilder any rounds 

Fury looked amazing 

Again though, an amazing fight was spoilt by corruption 

It's the most corrupt sport in the world, how anyone can be a fan with  that happening every week is beyond me

Think fury would smash Joshua myself I’d prefer see that than a wilder rematch.

I've not seen more than the 12th round

But those punch stats above hardly suggest a fury win by a wide margin, do they

I would love for it to be over here but I can see Wilder doing everything possible to avoid him now. If he does decide to fight him it will be on his terms ie America

Fury is getting more attention now for drawing than what he did when he swept up the division by beating the best heavyweight of recent times. 

The times we live in.

The maths is out. I'm not being a pedant for checking it, just pointing out that %-wise, it was closer than you stated. That said, you've still got to be asking how three judges can each get a different result from the same fight. I thought judging was objective skill (matter of fact) rather than subjective (matter of opinion)

The Boxing Board of Control ought to be questioning their suitability to judge a world championship fight.

They're a set of dicks releasing fucked up percentages.

Just looks like they are making it up.

Neither were correct.

Fury's 248 + 104 = 352 not 327.
