Floyd Mayweather Sr believes Deontay Wilder should have claimed victory over Tyson Fury on Saturday night in Los Angeles.
Wilder and Fury fought to a draw in their heavyweight fight at the Staples Centre with the American retaining his WBC heavyweight world title.
Even despite Wilder’s two knockdowns, the majority of the viewing public believe Fury was the true victor and should have returned to the UK with the belt.
However, Mayweather Sr didn’t feel the same as most others and even felt Wilder should have been awarded the victory.
‘I’ll be honest, I didn’t like the draw, I really thought Wilder had really beaten him,’ Mayweather Sr told Fight Hype.
‘He [Wilder] knocked him down twice, but neither one of them really threw a whole bunch of punches.
‘On points, I’m saying Wilder dropped him twice, Fury didn’t really didn’t do anything, tapped him with his jab a couple of times, he didn’t get anything.’
While Mayweather Sr remained unimpressed by Fury’s performance, he did admit he was suprised when he got back to his feet after the second time he was knocked down.
‘It looked like he was out, for real,’ he added. ‘He’s just one of those guys who stumble up and say ‘hey, we’re back to work’.
‘I was surprised. I thought he was down for good.’
