LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - American Deontay Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title after a split decision draw with Britain's Tyson Fury at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The hard-hitting Wilder knocked Fury down twice but the Briton controlled much of the fight behind his long jab, precise footwork and stout defence.
