Hearn: Wilder Must Fight Joshua Next or We Might Miss The Boat

Deontay Wilder

Despite a rematch seeming inevitable, current WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn have both expressed their interest to fight either Wilder or Fury.

"The Bronze Bomber" on the other hand may attempt to flummox Fury by lacing up his gloves to actually box, as opposed to looking for his dynamite right.

The former WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO Champion hasn't ruled out a rematch in the United Kingdom, saying that if it did happen, he would want it to take place in his hometown of Manchester and be held at Old Trafford.

"I don't want no other fights to happen between him or I before then". If we fail, I'll be glad to meet with fury for a second time.

But if Fury gets his wish and faces Wilder in front of 80,000 fans at Old Trafford, he'll be determined to make his home advantage count and secure a title-winning victory on home soil. Although it was Wilder who was behind the biggest moments of the fight - knockdowns in the eighth and twelfth rounds - Fury out-boxed him for the majority of the contest.

The American will fight to retain the only world belt not held by Joshua, who has three of four.

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

Fury was denied one of the greatest comebacks in boxing history after scores of 115-111, 112-114 and 113-113 over the weekend.

Boxing referee Jack Reiss has explained Tyson Fury's awesome 12th round resurrection after being knocked down by Deontay Wilder.

"This is an exciting fight".

And Tyson fury at one time was the best heavyweight. 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. We don't know the answer to this question and I can not answer it.

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. He is in camp now in America, and he would love to fight Fury, he would.
