Mexican Alejandro Rochin ruled 115-111 in favour of Wilder, Canadian Robert Tapper scored it 114-110 to Fury and Englishman Phil Edwards had it at 113-113.

But Tapper’s sheet proved he actually had the score at 114-112 to Fury.

The three judges have already come under fire for not having Fury, 30, as winner.

The boxing world branded the decision a “robbery”, stopping the Gypsy King completing one of the biggest comebacks in sport.

Fury has demanded the British Boxing Board of Control rap fellow Brit Edwards for his even result.

He said: “I should have won the fight but I’m not going to complain. It was what it was.

“I’ve come away and I’m on away soil but what most disappointed me was the British judge. I don’t know what fight he was watching.

“I think the British Boxing Board of Control need to have a word with him but it was what it was. I’m not going to complain.

“Many men probably wouldn’t have gotten up from the knockdown but I did and that’s what it is.”
