Let’s make Joshua-Fury fight happen, Warren tells Hearn

Let’s make Joshua-Fury fight happen, Warren tells Hearn

The WBC heavyweight champion retained his belt at the Staples Center after his bout with Fury was controversially scored as a draw.

Had Wilder beaten Fury, he would have sought a unification fight against Joshua, but that has been put on the backburner as he plans to settle his score with Fury.

Sometimes with all the words that come out of Fury's mouth, you have to take with a pinch of salt, however, the 30-year-old backed up his claims in the ring.

"It's only right for us to go back in and do it again", Wilder said on a Tuesday conference call.

"What? Tyson Fury doesn't bring anything to the party?" Fury survived two knockdowns in the fight - notably a "phoenix from the flames" recovery in the last round - but the 30-year-old took nearly every other round on most peoples' scorecards. Fury's team are asking the WBC to review the decision and order a re-match.

Commenting on the findings, CEO and co-founder of Muso Andy Chatterley said: "This fight was always going to draw in a massive audience, and it certainly did that". "I showed the world tonight, and everyone suffering with mental health problems, you can come back and it can be done".

Wilder and Fury are likely to rematch one another down the road. They said it wouldn't go ahead - well it did go ahead, didn't it? Wilder said he doesn't want to fight anybody else before a rematch. So we'll see what happens.




"I wanted to end it on a great note", he said. I don't know, " Fury said afterward. They (Wilder) wanted to get to you because they assumed you was finished! "They're getting what they deserve".

However, Fury's promoter has urged his longterm rival, Eddie Hearn, to make a fight between the two top British heavyweights.

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

After returning to the headlines by finishing 10th in the FIFA Ballon d'Or, and then landing the Pride Of Sport Inspirational Performance Award, the Tottenham striker's odds have tumbled to a general 2/1 from 9/4 - many bookies making him favourite, or joint favourite. They had their opportunity but they led people on. If he wants to be singled out, he's got to obtain all the belts, he's got to leave no doubt.

"They said it was going to be a boring fight".

Showtime will replay the pay-per-view fight this Saturday (9 p.m. ET), followed by the debut of the "All Access: Wilder vs. Fury" epilogue episode. "Some of his punches reached the target, but for the most part it was the pats, they have not provided me any action", - said the American. But you'll get the best of Deontay Wilder.

"I remember a time where nobody in America would even know who the heavyweight champion was".
