Fury wants Wilder rematch at Old Trafford

It has been a big and exciting year for the boxing world following three of the game's biggest heavyweight names, Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, all being involved in a title match this year. The break-even point for this pay-per-view was reportedly 250,000 buys, meaning anything north of that mark is a win, particularly for Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, who will pocket a portion of the pay-per-view sales in addition to their guaranteed purses. I've spoken to him numerous times.

"Frank Warren said Arsenal but I said "no, let's have it at Old Trafford".

On Monday, Fury spoke with Morgan on Good Morning Britain to discuss the fight and future plans, admitting he was "devastated" with the fight result and believes he won the fight.

"I don't want no other fights to happen between him or I before then". Oh, my god. Can't wait for the second one.

In the end, the 12-round fight ended in a draw.

However, the fight was scored a split draw with scorecards of 115-111 to Wilder, 114-111 to Fury, and 113-113 a draw, a "robbery" in the eyes of many fans, including Piers Morgan, who dubbed "The Gypsy King" the "real life Rocky Balboa".

Wilder vs. Fury lived up to its hype, like the classic exhilarating nights of classic heavyweight boxing: the thunderous blood-pumping adrenaline that whammed and thrummed throughout a rip-roaring crowd.

The American knocked his opponent down twice, including a brutal takedown in the 12th round, but the towering Fury controlled much of the fight, leaving some not least the Briton himself to claim he was robbed by the judges.

"This is an exciting fight". He could have had Luis Ortiz, he could have had Tyson Fury, he could have had me, but their ego got the best of them.

After a few seconds lying prone, Fury miraculously rose as if leisurely getting out of bed, hugged the referee, and jogged a few steps to the corner. We don't know the answer to this question and I can not answer it. We'd love the fight against either of them - it would be great for fight fans.

Wilder went onto say later in his interview that there will definitely be a rematch between him and British boxer Fury.
