The victory capped a remarkable return to the top of the sport from Fury, 31, who plumbed the depths of despair after defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to win the IBF, WBA and WBO titles, only to them all out of the ring as he battled drink, drugs and mental health issues.

Fury proved the bookies and experts wrong by stopping Deontay Wilder, handing the American his first loss, something he promised to do.

Fury dropped Wilder in the third round with a right hand that seemed to take the legs out of the champion.

Wilder was dripping blood all over the place - and during the 6th round, Fury flicked out his tongue and began licking the blood off of Wilder's bloody neck!

Wilder's corner ultimately threw in the towel in Round 7 - it was clear Deontay just didn't have it Saturday night.

Fury, who came into the fight with new trainer Javan "Sugar" Hill, the nephew of the late Hall of Fame trainer Emanuel Steward, who Fury hired after parting ways with Ben Davison, celebrated in the ring following his post-fight television interview by leading the crowd in singing Don McLean's famed "American Pie".

Fury put Wilder down twice.

"Even the greatest have lost and come back", Wilder said.

A fight between the pair would unify the belts but the mouth-watering, all-British match-up might have to wait for a Fury-Wilder trilogy to be completed instead. "But tonight when I was in there I felt like a beast, this is my weight for sure".

Ringside punch stats demonstrated Fury's dominance, showing him out landing Wilder 82-34 in total punches.

Fury landed a right to the side of Wilder's head early in the second round and forced him back several times and also stopped him from advancing with his jab.

"I wish my corner would have let me go out on my shield", Wilder said.

Tyson Fury is the WBC heavyweight champion of the world! "Tyson made it a lot easier on me by fighting the way he did".

"When me and SugarHill spoke, he told me that I would knock him out and I believed in what he said".

The belts have since been taken by Britain's Anthony Joshua. But in the end, the judges rules it a split draw: 114-112 Fury, 115-111 Wilder and 113-113.
