Fury reveals Old Trafford possible venue for Wilder rematch next summer

  • Home turf Tyson Fury calls for Deontay Wilder rematch at Old Trafford

"I want to give Tyson Fury the rematch ASAP. It's only right for us to go back in and do it again", Wilder said.

In the ninth round fury has been knocked down, but got up and continued the fight. 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'm ready whenever he's ready to do it".

Fury went the distance with reigning WBC heavyweight champion Wilder in a thrilling title clash at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last weekend, but was left angry and frustrated when the judges at ringside rendered a split draw verdict.

"Everyone is talking about this fight".

"I don't want no other fights to happen between him or I before then".

With a rematch all but signed for early 2019, one can assume the number for Wilder-Fury II will be a bigger win for Showtime.

But after traveling to the U.S. to face Wilder in the first meeting, Fury says the American should return the favor and jet across the Atlantic to face the Brit in his hometown of Manchester.

"They felt they were the only people in heavyweight boxing that people cared about".

It briefly looked like Wilder might've won in the 12th round Saturday when he knocked down Fury, but Fury picked himself up off the canvas just in time to continue the fight.

Fury said on Saturday that he also wanted a rematch.

It appears Wilder and Fury are set to have a rematch and will keep Anthony Joshua, the IBF, WBA and WBO champion, waiting on his hopes of completely unifying the division. He said Joshua and his team are "getting what they deserve" by being sidelined from his two most high-profile potential opponents.

I have long insisted on meeting Joshua, but they had other plans. Not only did this fight go down as an instant classic, but it also looks like it was a definite financial success as well.

Wilder said he broke his right arm and had surgery about 12 weeks before training camp and threw few right hands during training, which he feels might have affected his accuracy.
