One of the biggest talking points of the fight was Fury's incredible rise from the canvas in the 12th round, as the former champion received a count from the referee.
The three judges were divided on the outcome, with one scoring it 115-111 for Wilder, another 114-112 for Fury and the third 113-113.
A bout that was supposed to at least put public pressure on Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KO), the owner of the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles and the biggest draw in the division, to face the victor at some point in 2019 - especially if it was Wilder - instead may have tabled that fight for the time being.
While both men thought they won, neither was overly upset by the verdict in front of a frenzied Hollywood crowd.
Fury appeared to be on his way to a decision victory when he came out for the final round - and a minute later, he looked totally finished when Wilder put him on his back with a right-left combination.

But according to an interview with Vogue , Chopra was decidedly not a fan of the year she spent in Newton. The publication states: 'Chopra will wear a custom gown by Ralph Lauren, very likely more than one.
"I think that we were a little tense", he said. I went to Germany to fight [Wladimir] Klitschko, and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder. "I don't know how he got up", the 33-year-old added. In his worst state, Fury was almost 400 pounds. Fury counter-punched his way through the fifth round, though most of the shots he threw upstairs were blocked by Wilder.
"We gave each other all we've got", Wilder said.
The answer to that ultimately became clear when, even as their fight progressed into the unsafe final rounds, he somehow performed with the same sharpness that inspired his memorable victory over Klitschko, even recovering from the second knockdown to end their fight on top. But just when the fight was turning into a one-sided landslide victory in favor of Fury, Wilder turned things around in a hurry.
Sarah Palin's home damaged in massive Alaska quake
NOAA initially put out an alert advising that there was a Tsunami warning, before lifting that around half an hour later. From Friday's quake to early Saturday morning, parts of Alaska experienced about 194 earthquakes, according to USGS.
The 256½-pound Fury, who held a 44-pound weight advantage, bounced back well in the 10th round, and it was clear Wilder was becoming frustrated by his movement. "I was never going to be knocked out tonight. I've got good fighting spirit".
They are likely to fight again next spring, when Fury would become the favourite, posing a greater threat to Anthony Joshua's status as the world's leading heavyweight.
"I came here and fought my heart out - he [Wilder] is the second best heavyweight behind me".
German prosecutors raid Deutsche Bank offices amid investigations into tax havens
He believes the bank will now be paralysed for months until it becomes clear how it will be affected by new potential fines. A German court ordered the search and targeted at least two employees of the group, according to the prosecutor's office.
"We can only do our best in that ring, no matter what anyone says, Deontay is a great champion", Fury said. "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again". I don't know anyone on the planet that can move like that.
