The boxing world continues to express its displeasure to last weekend’s heavyweight title result in LA.
The WBC heavyweight title fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury was scored a draw which hardly anyone of note has agreed with so far in the boxing world.
Floyd Mayweather and indeed his father Mayweather senior were both ringside at the fight in the Staples Center and were shocked when the final cards were called out.
Here’s how senior reacted in a clip that also appears to show some member’s of Wilder’s team celebrating the draw decision:
Floyd Mayweather Sr's reaction to #WilderFury being announced as a draw is the same as millions all around the World:
?"That's garbage. That's GARBAGE! ?♂️"

Fury has been doing the media rounds all week since arriving back in the UK and has been greeted with a hero’s welcome for the most part.
A stark contrast from 2015 after beating Wladimir Klitschko, Fury of 2018 really seems to have finally won over the public.
His display on Saturday night spoke for itself really.
Before the fight some had speculated that there was a rematch clause both ways for Wilder and Fury but now it doesn’t appear to be the case on Fury’s end at least.
As why would they petition the WBC for the rematch if it was already contractual?
Hopefully the rematch can be made as soon as possible.
