Wilder hoping for a rematch with Fury 'ASAP'

Wilder hoping for a rematch with Fury 'ASAP'

If I had to summarize the fight: Fury out-boxed and frustrated Wilder for most of the night aside from a few moments where Wilder's speed and power got to him. Wilder made believers out of doubters by uncorking what we all thought was a fight-ending left hand in the 12th round.

Wilder said being more than 50 pounds lighter than Fury at the time of the fight and the after-effects of surgery on his right arm also contributed to his sub-par performance.

"Both sides definitely want (a rematch) to happen". Wilder has appeared on "The Late Late Show" with James Corden and "The Herd" with Colin Cowherd on FS1. I'll give you a fair one when you're ready!

"I barely threw any [right hand] punches my whole entire camp". After predicting a Wilder knockout beforehand, I scored the fight 115-111 (9 rounds to 3, including two knockdowns) for Tyson Fury. I take nothing away from this fight but we won the fight.

But fury considers himself an outsider and talks to and for people who will never see themselves as insiders while dealing in the only currency he believes in - loyalty. These are the kinds of platforms heavyweight boxing in America hasn't been featured on since at least Lennox Lewis reigned as champion more than a decade ago.

But even with Joshua holding what he calls his belts, Fury isn't too concerned.

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

"I'm willing and ready to give Fury the opportunity ASAP". "You see many of these rich people's kids doing nothing because they had it too easy".

Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza said his network will support a pay-per-view sequel and is looking forward to getting it done after the fighters have time to recover from such a taxing fight.

That scuppers Joshua's plans of holding a unification fight at Wembley Stadium in April, though Wilder hopes they will eventually meet in the ring.

"You're boxing beautifully", Davison assured Fury, before continuing to advise his fighter on the best path to victory. They want to be the main source that everyone goes to.

Wilder has held the WBC title since January 2015 and Joshua has held all the other major versions of the heavyweight title since beating Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017.

Last week one of their women won a bronze medal at the World Championships in India, the men won nine medals (four gold) at the EU Championships in Spain and earlier this year, GB boxers won 14 medals at the Commonwealth Games.
