Deontay Wilder makes major announcement following Tyson Fury epic

Deontay Wilder says he broke his arm before Tyson Fury bout

The WBC heavyweight champion retained his belt at the Staples Center after his bout with Fury was controversially scored as a draw.

Tommy Fury explains how his brother and his "favourite fighter" Tyson Fury has given him the motivation he needs as the light-heavyweight counts down the days to his eagerly anticipated professional debut on December 22nd on the undercard of Josh Warrington's IBF World Featherweight Title defence against Carl Frampton.

A rematch with Wilder is a very realistic possibility with the victor then perhaps facing Joshua, who holds the IBF, WBA and WBO straps formerly held by Fury, later in 2019.

"Oh, man, they was throwing up", Wilder said about how he thinks Joshua and promoter Eddie Hearn felt watching the fight Saturday.

"You saw the best Fury, but you did not get the best Wilder and I still managed to get the job done", he said. "It's only right for us to go back in and do it again", Wilder said.

Wilder snatched a draw on Saturday after Fury somehow recovered from a devastating 12th round knockdown by the American champion to finish the fight on his feet. I'll give you a fair one when your ready!

Wilder said the bright lights of his first pay-per-view fight and a crowd of almost 18,000 fans, caused nerves that led him to hunt for a knockout as opposed to staying with his game plan.

Davison was as devastated as anyone with the judges' decision on the night, saying after the fight: "You have got to be a sick, sick man to do that".

"It's up to him and I believe that's how he wants it".

"This rematch is the fight boxing fans want to see".

"If everything is in the paper, I have no desire to discuss anything, and let him go fight who he wants", he said. Many people felt it should have been waved off.

Wilder, who on Saturday had spoken enthusiastically about a possible unification fight with Joshua, meanwhile poured cold water on the idea on Tuesday.

Deontay Wilder has made a startling revelation about a pre-fight injury that made his heavyweight blockbuster against Tyson Fury even more improbable. Me and Fury did it like true champions. And that's enough there to get you excited, to get you motivated as the fighter who is going to be performing on that night. "I'm quite sure [they want] to see the top Brit fighting the top Brit", he told the Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT.

"No one has talked about Joshua in I don't know how long and I plan on keeping it that way".
