Deontay Wilder: Forget Anthony Joshua, I want rematch with Tyson Fury

Share

Legit.ng recalls that WBC Champion, Deontay Wilder, defended his title against challenger Tyson Fury in the biggest heavyweight fight in the United States, since Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson in 2002.

"I'm willing and ready to give Fury the opportunity ASAP".

Wilder said the injury occurred when he was sparring and even required surgery, which his camp were somehow able to keep out of the press.

Wilder retained his title Sunday following a dramatic draw at the Staples Center - but many believed Fury should have won had it not been for the controversial scoring of one judge.

"We had to show the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best, and look at the outcome", Wilder said. All the way up here I got cut.

Wilder (40-0-1) knocked Fury (27-0-1) down twice late in the fight, but many boxing experts agreed he was outboxed for much of the fight.

He indicated the rematch might happen as early as March or April. I don't see why we wouldn't.

"I saw his eyes roll slowly in the back of his head", Wilder said.

While most boxers seem to be more focused on making it through their career without a loss, Fury has other aspirations. "Nine times out of 10 the referee would wave that off".

"It might also be the case that Wilder fancies his chances in a punch-out with AJ rather than another go at Fury".

"He said, "You all right?' I said, "Yes".

Wilder's mentions have since been inundated with criticism, with fans pointing out inconsistencies in his theory and reminding "The Bronze Bomber" of the consensus that Fury deserved the victory. It's a great fight and the build-up has already started. We are not here to get a 100-0 record.

"If anything, the way that fight went on Saturday works in our favour in terms of getting Wilder".

"But seriously I want the rematch before any other fight".

Over the weekend (Sat. December 1, 2018), Tyson Fury made a triumphant return to the highest levels of his sport in a heavyweight boxing contest.

"Some people feel I don't want the rematch". I'm the baddest man on the planet. "I'm ready whenever he's ready to do it. My kids have to make their own living and make their own way in life; they won't be living off my name or reputation because that's too easy a route", he continued. And if it don't happen it will be a shame in the heavyweight division'. I was the aggressor and I thought I won.

In the first meeting, Wilder said he let the pressure of being in his first pay-per-view fight affect him.

"We're not going to rush anything to fit into a certain timetable", Espinoza said. In the aftermath of that fight, Wilder took to Instagram and said: "the fans are the real victor and I can't wait for Wilder Fury 2".

However Wilder said a rematch was all but inescapable.

"It ain't no doubt in my mind nor will it be a doubt in Fury's mind that when the second time comes around there's gonna be a lot of intensity".

"If you did a poll now with the fans for Anthony Joshua's next fight... what do you think would be top of the pops there?" Oh, my god! Can't wait for the second one. "It might be a trilogy if it goes as good as the first". Their ego got the best of them. "And if you can do that and look at me, you're telling me you're all right". We can't get away from this fight. "And I'm ready to do it again". We came together and did that, and it was fantastic.
