WATCH: Tyson Fury goes full Undertaker following THAT hook from Deontay Wilder
We felt that.
During the twelfth and final round between long-out-of-the-game Tyson Fury and currently undefeated Deontay Wilder, Fury was dealt a vicious combination of blows, culminating in a hook that initially seemed to knock him out cold.
As you can see there, it doesn't take Fury too long to get back up on his fight and continue on into the fight, but it was the WAY that Fury got back up that grabbed the attention of most viewers.
It helps too if you add in the iconic music:

Yep, Tyson Fury is essentially boxing world's answer to The Undertaker.
The fight would last the full twelve rounds, with the judges eventually scoring it a draw:: 115-111 Wilder, 114-110 Fury, 113-113.
Many viewers immediately took to Twitter to announce their unhappiness with this result, as they believed there had been a clear winner all the way through the fight:
Tyson Fury went to the backyards of both Klitschko and Wilder, two of the most devastating punchers in the history of the sport and boxed the heads off both of them with his hands behind his back

This #WilderFury judging takes me back to my first fight with @holyfield Just goes to show how hard it is for a Brit to come to America and take someone’s belt even tho that’s what we clearly saw. Big up to @Tyson_Fury who never ceases to amaze me. Hold ur head high! 👊🏾💥

The King Fury absolutely hosed by the Judges and robbed of his moment, even with the knockdown you can’t give that to Wilder.

Fury seemed to take the result in good spirits though, especially knowing that a rematch is all but a certainty.
Not only did he tell the press afterwards that "There was 10,000 travelling Brits in that arena and I would have caused a riot if I kicked off about the result, I just want to be an ambassador for my country", he then managed to get the entire press room to sing along with him to a rendition of 'American Pie':
