Deontay Wilder fans insist he was 'robbed' in Tyson Fury loss as they claim count was slow after Gyspy King knocked down

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."
