Tyson Fury sends a message to Deontay Wilder

Postado Janeiro 11, 2019

A world heavyweight title rematch between Britain's Tyson Fury and WBC champion Deontay Wilder could take place in the United States in the first half of this year.

The draw with Wilder was heavily criticised, and Fury had a message for the WBC champion from his training base in Marbella.

"I'm just maintaining my fitness really, I'm [as] fit now as I was then, same kind of thing, I'm ready to fight".

Perhaps the peak of this coming in the 12th round when Wilder looked like he had knocked out Fury cold, only for the Manchester man to somehow not only get up and beat the count but in many people's opinion - also come back to win the round. Don't f*** yourself now, mate'.

A unification fight with Wilder remains the hope of the division and Joshua v Fury would be an all-British fight that would certainly pack the famous venue.

Fury appeared to be getting the better of Wilder through the opening eight rounds before Wilder was able to turn the tide with a knockdown in round nine.

"We're trying to make that fight at the moment, everyone wants the fight and most importantly the fighters want it", promoter Frank Warren told ESPN.

But either of those options seem unlikely for now with Joshua's next option looking to be unsafe Londoner Dillian Whyte.

Tyson Fury knows their is a high probability of a second fight with Deontay Wilder and is thus staying in shape for the proposed rematch.

"It's Barry and Eddie Hearn's agenda that complicates it. Joshua is their cash cow and they want to keep milking it", he said of the prospects of a Fury-Joshua fight.

One example that comes to mind was the controversial nature of Lennox Lewis vs Evander Holyfield 1 whereby the public demanded the rematch which turned out to be a huge fight.
