    The two boxers settled their long-running rivalry at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia on Sunday night, with Fury claiming victory via split decision following an eight-round contest. Paul had knocked down Fury in the final round but was left with cuts and bruises on his face after the intense bout, which also saw both fighters deducted a point for fouls.
