Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder Battle to Draw in Instant Classic

A date is expected to be agreed in the near future with both Las Vegas and London mooted as potential host cities, though Fury's promoter - veteran Frank Warren - insists his charge will fight Wilder again anywhere, anytime. Fury got up quickly and rallied to almost winning back the round as Wilder appeared as if he might've punched himself out going for the finish.

Although Wilder - whose record now reads 40-0-1 - retained his WBC heavyweight belt by avoiding defeat, his limitations were exposed by Fury, who made the champion miss repeatedly only for his power to eventually bail him out.

Many saw Fury as the clear victor, even with Wilder scoring two knockdowns in the later round of the fight, the judges would be split across the board, with one scoring it 113-113 even, 115-111 for Wilder, and 112-114 for Fury.

However, Fury doubts whether Wilder has the appetite to step in the ring with him again.

Deontay Wilder is "very interested" in facing Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight unification fight after retaining his WBC belt courtesy of a contentious draw against Tyson Fury, Wilder's co-manager, Shelly Finkel, says.

"But I didn't see any folding, Ben".

Listen 100 per cent we'll do the rematch, but we're going to go away, recalculate, see what's going to happen, get back together, said Fury. I don't know what fight he was watching.

Wilder faced the two toughest opponents of his career this year including a spectacular knockout win over Cuban slugger Luis Ortiz in a Fight of the Year candidate in March. I just wanted the best for boxing here in America and boxing in general - which lead me to get overly anxious to knock his head off so I abandoned the game plan.

"They said it was going to be a boring fight". We need to give Britain the biggest fight in British boxing history and that's me and Joshua.
