Deontay Wilder rushed to hospital with suspected burst eardrum after getting destroyed by Tyson Fury

DEONTAY WILDER missed his post-fight press conference amid reports he was en route to hospital after losing to Tyson Fury in their heavyweight title rematch.

After four rounds of Sunday morning's mega Las Vegas contest, blood was seen coming out of the American's left ear to create concerns of a burst eardrum.

Each break in the fight saw Wilder's camp tend to the wound as concerns he was battling on while concussed grew.

And with Fury in total control, his corner threw in the towel during round seven.

Although Wilder responded furiously to his camp's decision, he was reportedly taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

Said to have received stitches to his ear in the dressing room post-fight, he did not appear at his scheduled press conference.

However ESPN reporter Dan Rafael has reported that Wilder did not leave for hospital during the conference and instead remained in his dressing room to provide the required urine sample to anti-doping authorities.

Along with the suspected burst eardrum, the 34-year-old also carried a split lip that cut early on in the WBC title clash.

British viewers waking up in the early hours of Sunday morning were rewarded with an enthralling contest that Fury dominated.

As the Gypsy King laid into his rival, Wilder hit the canvas a number of times due to both pushdowns and by simply tripping over.

But the Bronze Bomber spoke up his desire to reclaim his world championship belt immediately after the fight.

He stated: "I’m doing good. Things like this happen. The best man won tonight, but my corner threw in the towel and I was ready to go out on my shield.
