But he popped back to life and hung on to secure a famous draw in the WBC title fight in Los Angeles.
The Bronze Bomber took to Instagram, writing: "I can't wait for Wilder Fury 2". The break-even point for this pay-per-view was reportedly 250,000 buys, meaning anything north of that mark is a win, particularly for Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, who will pocket a portion of the pay-per-view sales in addition to their guaranteed purses. Thereafter, he'll unleash old faithful and throw a barrage of explosive knockout-power that will be rendered useless, as he will struggle to lay a glove on Tyson, let alone spark him unconscious.
Of course, Fury reportedly wants to bring the fight to his native England as well.
"Frank Warren said Arsenal, I said: 'No, let's have it at Old Trafford". That's why I want to fight with Joshua now. If we fail, I'll be glad to meet with fury for a second time.
It appears Wilder and Fury are set to have a rematch and will keep Anthony Joshua, the IBF, WBA and WBO champion, waiting on his hopes of completely unifying the division.
In the end, the 12-round fight ended in a draw.
Saturday's fight was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113, with Alejandro Rochin the judge who had the American as the victor.
