Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder 'could meet in spring rematch'

CHelsea news

The thrilling draw at Los Angeles' Staples Center between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder was the latest classic in a heavyweight division that has emerged from its most forgettable era.

But while he won the overwhelming majority of rounds in my scorecard and dominated large segments of this fight with his deft movement and feints that threw Wilder off his rhythm, unfortunately he was struck down twice to the canvas in rounds 9, and most dramatically in the 12th, when the prevailing sense was that Wilder needed a miraculous finish to retain his title.

The rivals finally fight on Saturday evening at Los Angeles' Staples Center and Press Association Sport understands that, unusually, both fighters have rematch clauses in the event of their first professional defeat.

Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs), 30, of England, clowned around by putting his hands behind his back and bobbing his head, but he eventually began landing jabs to the head and body as Wilder was wild with his punches.

"I would love for it to be my next fight", Wilder said. I didn't sit still.

"As long as I'm focused for the full duration of the fight, I don't see him landing any punches at all", Fury said.




Fury who remains undefeated there are few questions arise here as to whether he's fully back to the form he showcased when he outpointed the longstanding reign of Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015.

"No wonder AJ didn't want no part of that right hand!" Fury was in a groove, bouncing and moving in and out and not giving Wilder a clear target to hit, even though he carried his left hand very low, nearly below his waist, in an inviting opening for Wilder's big right hand.

Fury was disappointed not to have been given the win, but felt he performed better than Joshua would have done - the IBF, WBA and WBO champion having failed to agree terms to fight Wilder this year.

"We gave each other all we've got", Wilder said. It was a great fight, so let's do it again. It doesn't matter to me where we do it. "I had to get up and show that you can continue, that anything is possible". "We need to do it again".

"We're on away soil", he said.

Manny Pacquiao is looking forward to seeing a second chapter in the Wilder-Fury story after watching "two great heavyweights trading shots". I think my emotions got the best of me and I don' think, I know, my emotions got the best of me just wanting to just really get him out of there.
