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

"I take nothing away from this fight but we won this fight", Wilder wrote on Instagram. Wilder made believers out of doubters by uncorking what we all thought was a fight-ending left hand in the 12th round. Fury outboxed Wilder for much of the fight, but was sent crashing to the canvas on two separate occasions.

"I've got a amusing feeling he's going to get his running shoes out and stay away from me at all costs", Fury said.

He has lost his most weight which he could ever lose and he did that both physically and mentally and had given his most heavy and devastating puncher in the heavy weight division of heavyweight. A fight that has earned millions of euro, that the boxer wants to pass.

Yet after just two comeback fights against mediocre opposition to say the least the 30-year-old looked every inch a world title contender once more as he climbed into the ring last Saturday night to fight a man who had won all of his professional bouts to date.

And Wilder explained that it is hard to create a buzz in the United States for heavyweight boxing, and that he felt the pressure to do so. 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.

"So I felt a lot of pressure to bring this back and I always tried to be a man of my word".

Of the 1,300 or so absentee ballot requests Bladen County received, Dowless turned in nearly half of those on behalf of voters. Harris may not be the only Republican to have benefited from Dowless's work, either. "The news report are horrifying".

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

"When the rematch happens, there's no excuses. People don't know these things", Wilder said. They want to be the main source that everyone goes to.

Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza said May or June might be more likely, giving the fighters more time to recover. Fury remains the lineal champion.

He's seen praying: "In the mighty name of Jesus, give me strength and power tonight, Lord". And that's enough there to get you excited, to get you motivated as the fighter who is going to be performing on that night.

In response, Davison said, "you're boxing beautifully", and Fury continued to show no fear and, as everyone who witnessed the fight would say, was incredibly unlucky not to get the decision against the American.

"So let them continue to fight the second tier fighters". Another clash could see the mouth-watering prospect of a unification fight against Anthony Joshua take a step closer to reality.
