However the 33-year-old Wilder on Tuesday rejected that claim in the strongest possible terms, saying a rematch with Fury was his priority rather than a unification bout with WBA, IBF and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.
Fury took the full ten seconds to rise after many fans, and Wilder himself, appeared to believe the fight was over.
"I'm going to give it to the poor and I'm going to build homes for the homeless", Fury said.
"I was sparring, just getting ready and I was getting the best of my sparring partner". It seems that Fury simply wants to entertain the masses, and put on the fights that the fans want to see.
However, Wilder told The Times that "AJ" had missed his chance, with all signs pointing towards a rematch with Fury.
'Vegas would be huge, being that there's such a big controversial talk around the world [about the fight].
"Let both men come out of the ring very well and go back to their families safe".
"It's up to him and I believe that's how he wants it".

"My ultimate goal was to bring the heavyweight division back here in America", said Wilder, who won a bronze medal for his country at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. "Nine times out of 10 the referee would wave that off".
He indicated the rematch might happen as early as March or April. I'm sat here with a draw today but everybody knows the truth and I don't feel any lesser of a man.
His mental health battles have made him determined to help other people who suffer from mental health issues and also to help the homeless. "I wanted to end it on a devastating knockout and I pressed that. I pressed that too much". Anyway well done Fury! they wanted to get you because they assumed you was finished!
