Last night, English boxer Tyson Fury went to a split draw against WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder. In the dramatic fight, Wilder would deliver a vicious knockdown in the final round. Fury, who looked to be knocked out cold from the shot, miraculously got up before the count of ten and continued to fight as if nothing happened. Social media immediately was set ablaze, as many people saw Fury’s last second wind as eerily similar to The Undertaker’s rise from peril.
Here are a few reactions from Twitter users that watched the fight:

I know knockdowns count for a lot with boxing judges, but I think the Undertaker impersonation Fury pulled after that second one was inspirational.
