TYSON FURY was given extra seconds to recover from his knockdowns according to Deontay Wilder fans.
The Gypsy King was floored twice in the fourth round before recovering and landing a knockout blow in the 11th.
But fans of the American have claimed Fury was given a slow count.
It is not the first time such accusations have been made, with some suggesting the Brit received a slow count when he miraculously recovered from a 12th-round knockdown in the pair's first meeting.
One video posted online appears to show Fury fall to the canvas and get up ten seconds later – with the referee only counting up to seven seconds in that period.
Fury took time to compose himself, lying flat on the ring, before getting back up.
Just a few seconds later he was caught again by Wilder and found himself needing to beat the count a second time.
He managed to do so and the bell intervened before Wilder was able to land a killer blow.

After that it was mostly one-way traffic with Wilder barely holding on, but his fans believe he was robbed of a fourth-round knockout victory.
One of his supporters tweeted: "Fury down for 11 seconds?? Ref has the count at 7??? Wilder robbed once again."
Another added in agreement: "If the ref didn’t give Fury 10-year count it would be a different story."
A third said: "I understand Wilder got outboxed but are we all gonna ignore Fury’s 12 count. Ref says five, stops counting for three seconds, then says six."
