Plenty felt Fury's recovery after a fight-ending blow from Wilder was beyond miraculous.

With the American seemingly needing a knockout to claim victory, it looked like the Gypsy King's number was up after a devastating combo from the defending champ in the final round.

But, somehow, the Irish traveller found a way to get back on his feet and carry on.

It was a recovery that drew comparison with a certain WWE wrestling legend.

One thing looks certain: a rematch on UK soil.

Will Fury's miraculous powers of recovery be required again, or will he deliver boxing's equivalent of a tombstone to Wilder?
