Deontay Wilder makes major announcement following Tyson Fury epic

The fight went the distance

The fight went the distance

The British boxer came to the United States and faced Wilder on Saturday night at Staples Center, where the judges ruled the fight a split draw in an exciting fight in which Fury got up from knockdowns in the ninth and 12th rounds. "It's only right for us to go back in and do it again".

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. They wanted to get you because they assumed you was finished!

Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs), 33, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, considered by many the most devastating puncher in boxing, hit Fury cleanly with a right hand on the chin and followed with a left hook to score a brutal knockdown in the final round. "I'm ready whenever he's ready to do it".

Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs), 30, of England, also has expressed interest in having a rematch, and the direct communication between Fury and Wilder is part of what helped the first fight get made.

"My ultimate goal was to bring the heavyweight division back here in America", said Wilder, who won a bronze medal for his country at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

"Both sides definitely want (a rematch) to happen". Many people felt it should have been waved off.

There is speculation that the rematch could take place between March or June, although a late spring or early summer date is more likely to give the fighters time to recover.

He added: "It was an fantastic fight and I wanted nothing but greatness to come from this. I want to give Tyson Fury the rematch ASAP".

In the first meeting, Wilder said he let the pressure of being in his first pay-per-view fight affect him. "I pressed that too much".

Nonetheless, Wilder is apparently eager for a second installment of the rivalry and has completely dismissed the chance of fighting the IBF, WBA, and WBO world champion, Anthony Joshua.

Fury claimed Joshua would have been "nailed" by Wilder, and said his domestic rival has "my belts" - a reference to the titles he held after defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 before relinquishing them due to inactivity.

"No-one has talked about Joshua in I don't know how long and we plan on keeping it that way". Co-trainer Jay Deas said limiting the right in camp was a precautionary measure.
