Wilder Would “Love” Fury Rematch
After a draw with Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder said that he’d “love” a rematch with the lineal heavyweight champion.
Wilder would drop Fury in the 10th and nearly finished the “Gypsy King” in the 12th, with Fury looking out for the count. The two knockdowns would not dissuade the judges, as Robert Tapper of Canada would score it 114-112 for Fury, while Alejandro Rochin of Mexico would score it 115-111 for Wilder, and British judge Phil Edwards scoring it an even 113-113.
“I don’t know if it will be my next fight,” Wilder told BT Sport Box Office. “I would love for it to be my next fight.
“Why not? Let’s get right back into it and give the fans what they want to see. I think it was a great fight. We need to do it again.”
The WBC champion is also willing to go across the pond to face off with Fury. “Whatever makes sense,” Wilder said following the fight. “I think we could do it again in America. It doesn’t matter to me.”
“I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight,” said Wilder of the official scoring.
“We poured our hearts out tonight, we’re both warriors, we both went head-to-head but with those two drops I feel I won the fight.
“I didn’t think he had control of the fight, I think I let out just as much as he did, I wasn’t hurt.
