But Fury, the self-styled lineal champion after he "beat the man who beat the man", still has claims to that unofficial title. Joshua holds the IBF, WBA and WBO versions but hasn't been able to agree terms with Wilder in the past and that doesn't look like changing.
Fury arrived to the ring dancing to his entrance music, Freed From Desire, with his large travelling support singing him on the way.
The bout was deemed a draw but afterwards at the Staples Center, Fury said it was one of the performances of his life, and he did it to set an example for others. "Where are you, AJ?" "But I don't want to take anything away from Wilder, the decision was not his fault and he's a fantastic fighter".
"When you're at each other and you have a great fight, we give each other all we've got". I got put down with some good shots.
The hard-hitting Wilder had Fury down in the ninth and final rounds of the match but the Briton controlled much of the fight behind his long jab, precise footwork and stout defence.

D'un côté, Vladimir Poutine a déclaré mercredi qu'un prix (du Brent ) aux alentours de 60 dollars était "tout à fait acceptable". Depuis leur sommet en quatre ans atteint il y a presque deux mois, les prix du pétrole ont perdu environ 35 %.
"The Bronze Bomber" is perhaps the most ferocious puncher in the heavyweight division, using his remarkable power to overcome his relative inexperience in ring-craft having only taken up the sport of boxing aged 20. It was the most dramatic final round that I have ever seen. "Ole AJ wanted no part of that right hand. He can't move like me, he'd have been nailed!" Like many onlookers, he felt he'd done enough to win, and was pretty disappointed with the judges' decision.
"Wilder came over to the United Kingdom and showed up ... called out Joshua, he got offered a lot of money". Money that could change countries, probably. I went to Germany to fight [Wladimir] Klitschko, and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder.
Despite there being no undisputed victor, both men gave proper respect following the fight, considering themselves the two best heavyweights in the world while also taunting Antony Joshua.
Wilder spoke of his frustrations.

SBS presenter Michael Tomalaris said he was a "true gentleman" while cyclist Robbie McEwen said he was deeply saddened. He was joined in the booth for many of those events by co-commentator Phil Liggett.
"I don't know what he was watching", added Fury.
"The rematch I guarantee I'm going to get him". But I'll be satisfied either or, to be honest. I'm just a fighter, I'm not the judges. I came back from suicide and mental depression and substance abuse. "I don't know if Fury can be better".
Promoter Frank Warren said: "I'd love the rematch. We'd fill a football stadium up, Wembley, Arsenal, any of those big stadiums..."
Simply getting himself back to this point was shocking enough, but taking the best shot of the sport's most risky puncher and outclassing him in the process was likely enough to see the 30-year-old anointed as a British and Irish Traveller folk hero.
