Fury anxious Wilder is 'running' away from a rematch

And while Fury has admitted he is open to a rematch in a bid to take Wilder's WBC crown, ending Joshua's undefeated career would be his jewel in the crown.

The likeliest outcome would appear to be Wilder-Fury II in a Las Vegas casino, also in the coming spring. Overall, it was a great fight and a result sure to be discussed for some time to come.

Fury and Wilder fought out a controversial draw on Saturday night in a bout for Wilder's WBC heavyweight title.

Wilder faced the two toughest opponents of his career this year including a spectacular knockout win over Cuban slugger Luis Ortiz in a Fight of the Year candidate in March.

Reflecting on the judging, Fury would blast Alejandro Rochin, the judge who voted for Wilder, "Rochin, you need sacking, or to go to Specsavers, mate" claimed the lineal heavyweight champion.

"You can't take anything away from me or Wilder; we done our best". Sports, will be immediately followed by the premiere of ALL ACCESS: WILDER vs. FURY EPILOGUE.

While the fight played out exactly in favor of each fighter's strengths as Fury controlled by boxing with constant feints and awkward angles while Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) picked his spots to land heavy counter shots which threatened to end the fight.




"To beat the champion you must dominate the champ and to me I was the more aggressive fighter and landed the more effective punches".

"If it's something that people would like to see again we would absolutely love to do it".

"If it was up to me - and only me - I would like to do the Fury fight first because I think there is unfinished business".

Fury gave them up after twice pulling out of a rematch with Klitschko as he struggled with mental health problems.

Fury's promoter Frank Warren said his team would write to the WBC demanding another bout. I just wanted the best for boxing here in America and boxing in general - which lead me to get overly anxious to knock his head off so I abandoned the game plan. "Both guys put on a tremendous fight", Deas said.

Joshua last fought in September, when he successfully defended his belts by stopping Alexander Povetkin in seven rounds at Wembley.
