Deontay Wilder picks between Fury and Joshua for preferred next opponent

Wilder wants Fury rematch'ASAP

In the aftermath of that fight, Wilder took to Instagram and said: "the fans are the real victor and I can't wait for Wilder Fury 2". He don't have to worry about me moving past him, and I hope he don't have to go fight no one else.

"Get the confidence back, take an easy fight, little work, go back to the hard fight again".

"This is the biggest fight still in the heavyweight division, this is the most exciting fight in the heavyweight division and we're ready to give the fans what they want to see". I'm a boxer not a businessman and I'll probably go down the same route as every other boxer - skint at the end of it all.

"He was landing some punches but majority was pitty-patter, they didn't affect me", Wilder said.

"I'm going to give it to the poor and I'm going to build homes for the homeless", Fury said.

Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza said May or June might be more likely, giving the fighters more time to recover.

"Some people feel I don't want the rematch".


However the 33-year-old Wilder on Tuesday rejected that claim in the strongest possible terms, saying a rematch with Fury was his priority rather than a unification bout with WBA, IBF and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.

Wilder also dismissed criticism of the scoring of Saturday's fight, adamant that Fury had not done enough to win.

Tyson Fury has been in some big fights over the years, none more so than his fight with mental health issues including depression and suicidal thoughts. "They got him winning, they got me winning and some got it a draw".

The unbeaten Briton, whose camp failed to reach agreement with Wilder's for a 2018 showdown, has now responded to those comments and said he is ready to face either of his heavyweight rivals.

The fight was scored a draw, but many believe Fury won the bout with his superior boxing skill. Their ego got the best of them.

"You think the first fight was something?" The fight lived up to the hype more than ever. We came together, we conversated amongst each other and we got this fight done because we are the best in the division and we wanted to prove to each other who is the best.

"I'm just an outsider with an opinion buy it's a situation that is happening all over the world, especially in the United Kingdom as well". "And I'm ready to do it again".
