Fury makes claim to be the heavyweight - in a celebrated lineage including Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Sonny Liston, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and Mike Tyson - from his victory over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015. "He did and we let it go". But Fury somehow rose to his feet and survived the rest of 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. "And I'm ready to do it again".
Fury, 30, was awarded a controversial draw after his bout with champion Wilder in Los Angeles on Saturday.
"Everyone is talking about this fight". "I don't want any other fights to happen between him and I (meeting again)".
Fury and Wilder have both said they want a rematch, and the British heavyweight made his first public appearance in the United Kingdom since his impressive outing in Los Angeles.
As he was interviewed at half-time wearing a classic red, white and black scalf, Fury said that he's already told promoter Frank Warren that he wants to fight Wilder inside the Theatre of Dreams - an option that is now being explored. "Many people felt that should have been waved off".
Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza said May or June might be more likely, giving the fighters more time to recover.
"I got over-anxious to knock Tyson Fury out", said the 40-0-1 Wilder, who has won 39 of his fights by KO, usually with his deadly right hand. "I just wanted to bring it back".
That will mean Wilder will not be allowed to defend the belt against anyone else next other than Fury, which would end hopes of Anthony Joshua facing the American in April. He said Joshua and his team are "getting what they deserve" by being sidelined from his two most high-profile potential opponents. "No one has talked about Joshua in I don't know how long and we plan on keeping it that way". Me and Fury came together and showed the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best.
