Home turf: Tyson Fury calls for Deontay Wilder rematch at Old Trafford

08 December 2018

When asked of a potential rematch at London's Wembley Stadium, Fury said he would surely be open to the idea, but insisted he thought Wilder would "get his running shoes on" after their first meeting.

But, ironically, the match finished with the same end result as his bout with Wilder, as the two Premier League giants played out a 2-2 draw at the Theatre of Dreams.

"AJ's first choice is Wilder because when you're collecting belts, which he is, he wants to be the unified champ. Continue to the next fight".

Fury's promoter Frank Warren has suggested that he'd prefer to see Fury take on Anthony Joshua next, "the top Brit fighting the top Brit".

"There's three or four options at the minute for us".

Recall, December 1, Wilder had a fight against former champion Tyson fury, which ended in a controversial draw and retained his belt. We came together, we conversated amongst each other and we got this fight done because we are the best in the division and we wanted to prove to each other who is the best. So I think it's only right to give him a rematch.

The last statement is in reference to the fact that the Wilder/Fury fight failed to meet the projected pay per view earnings. "A lot of people are going to be interested in this fight".

Emergency slides have also been deployed to help passengers off. "Mud was hitting the windows", passenger Grant Palmer said. Clapping erupted on the plane after it came to a stop, passengers who were grateful to the pilot for his response said.

Whether it be in the States once again or back in the UK, Fury and Wilder part two is another treat for boxing fans around the world to drool over.

"There's a lot to talk about". It's not totally out of the window (Joshua and Fury) but look they didn't sell out the Staples Center and the numbers were relatively low in regards to pay-per-view.

"So both of them need to stop kidding themselves".

Fury also suggested that the judging would be more consistent in the United Kingdom after finding himself frustrated at the scoring discrepancies in Los Angeles.

"I wouldn't say choked, I wouldn't say choked because I was still the aggressor and I still landed more effective punches, being that I was the smaller guy", said Wilder.

He indicated the rematch might happen as early as March or April.
