Wilder Vs Fury Rematch In the Works.
A rematch is likely to happen in Las Vegas between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury before June. This rematch will then clear the way for the long awaited fight WBA-IBF-WBO champion Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) and Wilder. A rematch “Wilder Vs Fury” is as a result of a split draw in the last fight but there has to be a winner.
Recently in their last fight, they both Wilder and Fury dragged themselves to a 12th round with each of them recording his first ever draw fight. Their records now stand at WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) and Tyson Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs). Although Wilder was able to drop Fury twice but in the end the decision was a split draw with Wilder retaining his title.
Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, told ESPN that talks are underway for the rematch, but if it does materialize, it likely won’t be in California like the first one was.
“We’re trying to make that fight at the moment, everyone wants the fight and most importantly the fighters want it,” Warren told ESPN.
“The venue is looking like the U.S., that’s where the money is. Tyson was disappointed with the judging with the last fight, as I was, so a lot of things need to be sorted but the U.S. is where they want it, probably in the second quarter.
“Vegas would be one of the options. I wouldn’t want to go back to California, I didn’t like working with the Californian commission and there were a lot of things we didn’t like there.
