Fury eager for Wilder rematch


Tyson Fury is ready to fight and has called on Deontay Wilder to 'get the fight made' as negotiations over a rematch continue.

Fury was knocked down twice but managed to get back up on both occasions to take Wilder the distance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 1, only for the judges to be split over who was the winner.

The fight was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113 but many felt that the Briton should have been declared the winner and speaking after the bout both boxers expressed an interest in a rematch.

The WBC ordered a direct rematch and negotiations are ongoing in the hope of the fighters entering the ring in the early part of 2019.

Fury wasted little time in returning to the gym after the original bout and he has maintained his fitness as he prepares for the rematch.

“I’m just maintaining my fitness really. I’m [as] fit now as I was then, same kind of thing," Fury told BT Sport.

“I’m ready to fight. Wilder, let’s get the fight made, don’t s*** yourself now mate!”

Frank Warren, meanwhile, has outlined his plans for Fury with the targeting a fight against Anthony Joshua after the Wilder bout.

“We want to make the fights that matter and that is what we will do,” Warren said in his New Year’s column. “Those are the only fights Tyson Fury is interested in after reasserting himself as the world’s best heavyweight.

“He may not have the belts, but he is top of the charts again now and we are working on his rematch with Wilder currently.

“After [Wilder] he will want Anthony Joshua. And there is no reason from our side why this shouldn’t become a reality.

“It is a fight the British public will demand to see before too long.”
