Wilder hoping for a rematch with Fury 'ASAP'

Fury challenged Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title of the world.

There's so much unfinished business between Wilder and Fury - and the negotiations for the first fight went so smoothly - that it makes for an easy rematch.

The challenger, Tyson Fury of the United Kingdom, became the WBA (super), WBO, IBF, and lineal heavyweight champion after out-boxing long-time champion Wladimir Klitschko in Germany back in November of 2015. And if you can do that, and look at me, you're telling me you're alright'.

Although it is the father of four children, Tyson Fury is not, however, a fierce supporter of the legacy. "I'm ready to give the fans what they want to see and end this talk once and for all [about who won]". Many believed Fury won the fight, although Wilder knocked his opponent down twice. However, Fury is odds-on favourite to beat the American in a re-match and as short as 9/2 to be named Sports Personality of the Year.

Tyson Fury was the clear victor of his American fight with Deontay Wilder, according to Rob McCracken, Performance Director of the British boxing team and trainer to the likes of Anthony Joshua and Carl Froch.

The fight, which controversially ended in a draw, was available via 133 piracy streaming domains and 80 YouTube live links, according to figures released by Muso.

"He woke up from hell - I want to put him back there", Wilder said.

Wilder and Fury are likely to rematch one another down the road. "People don't know these things", Wilder said. I don't see why we wouldn't. It was a great fight. We can't get away from this fight. "It's only right for us to go back in and do it again".


"If everything is in the paper, I have no desire to discuss anything and let him go fight who he wants".

But the hall-of-fame promoter reckons either fight will feel flat in comparison to a potential rematch between Fury and Wilder. "They're getting what they deserve".

Both Wilder (40-0-1) and Joshua (22-0) remain undefeated, the latter having beaten Alexander Povetkin in his last Wembley bout in September.

After returning to the headlines by finishing 10th in the FIFA Ballon d'Or, and then landing the Pride Of Sport Inspirational Performance Award, the Tottenham striker's odds have tumbled to a general 2/1 from 9/4 - many bookies making him favourite, or joint favourite. They had the opportunity. Many people felt it should have been waved off.


Davison was as devastated as anyone with the judges' decision on the night, saying after the fight: "You have got to be a sick, sick man to do that". However, the allure of one of the biggest ever British fights may be enough to ensure they set their differences aside and make a deal. But you'll get the best of Deontay Wilder.

"I think it's got a good chance of coming to London". Who won the first fight?
