Another had it 115-111 for Wilder, while the other had it 114-112 for Fury.
Unusually since Anthony Joshua's victory over Wladimir Klitschko, the IBF, WBA and WBO champion would be at risk of being overlooked as the division's leading attraction, and discussing the inevitable rematch, Fury said: "One hundred percent we'll do it".
"I would love for it to be my next fight", Wilder said of the rematch. "We poured our hearts out tonight". I didn't sit still.
In the end, Fury was the better boxer, Wilder was the stronger puncher, and while one can question the margin on the card favoring Wilder, the end result was probably the fairest outcome, setting up a rematch that most fans will look forward to.
"I think with the two knockdowns, I definitely won the fight", Wilder said.

Officials have now cancelled a tsunami warning for southern Alaska that was issued following the 7.0-magnitude natural disaster . Kilgore said only 15 or 16 quakes of magnitude 6 or greater have been recorded during the past century in the same region.
Wilder scored two knockdowns and thought he won.
Wilder got the 10-8 score he needed to catch Fury on Edwards' scorecards, which ultimately meant the fight was announced as a split decision draw. Early on Wilder just missed with some big punches but as the rounds progressed Wilder started lunging more and missing by wider margins. God bless America. The "Gypsy King" has returned. I don't know what fight he was watching.
Fury by contrast cleverly picked his moments, finding Wilder with greater accuracy and causing a nasty swelling over the American's left eye.
Classy combinations drew cheers from his supporters as Wilder failed to rise to the occasion, often missing the target horribly as he tried to land a big punch. Fury seemed in control when Wilder landed his trademark, a howitzer of a right that landed on the side of Fury's head.
Both fighters gave a good account of themselves and showed themselves to be championship material.
"We're the two best in the world and we proved it".
