Tyson Fury To Be Granted 'Instant' Rematch Against Deontay Wilder

The pair's WBC heavyweight title fight in Los Angeles last Saturday ended in a controversial draw, with Fury's camp claiming he should have been given the points verdict, despite Wilder flooring him twice. The world knows it, but we're going to go on, continue to the next fight.

But on the contrary, promoters suggested it would not come that soon.

It is unclear if the rematch will be in America or the United Kingdom, but Wilder has already suggested Las Vegas as the ideal location.

Same went for Deontay Wilder, whose facial reaction contorted in a split second from one of glee to one of dumbfounded shock at an opponent who had withstood a devastating punch from the man who had recorded 39 knockouts in 40 professional wins up until Saturday's fight.

"AJ's first choice is Wilder because when you're collecting belts, which he is, he wants to be the unified champ". Oh my God, I can't wait for the second.

And Wilder doesn't mind even if it's a trilogy. I pushed his arms off and said walk over there, come back to me and show me you're OK.

The former WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO Champion hasn't ruled out a rematch in the United Kingdom, saying that if it did happen, he would want it to take place in his hometown of Manchester and be held at Old Trafford. Although it was Wilder who was behind the biggest moments of the fight - knockdowns in the eighth and twelfth rounds - Fury out-boxed him for the majority of the contest.

"The fight was easier than it seemed".

The Briton looked to have no hope of getting to his feet but unbelievably rose off the canvas, to the astonishment of Wilder and the Staples Center crowd, to survive the count and hang on until the end.

Down in the ninth round and savagely sent to the canvas in the last round, Fury looked out for the count. He could have had Luis Ortiz, he could have had Tyson Fury, he could have had me, but their ego got the best of them.

As he was interviewed at half-time wearing a classic red, white and black scalf, Fury said that he's already told promoter Frank Warren that he wants to fight Wilder inside the Theatre of Dreams - an option that is now being explored.
