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

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder rematch EXCLUSIVE

The pair's WBC heavyweight title fight in Los Angeles last Saturday ended in a controversial draw, with Fury's camp claiming he should have been given the points verdict, despite Wilder flooring him twice.

The second, heavier knockdown came when Wilder delivered a thunderous one-two that sent Fury crashing to the canvas in the final stanza, as though out cold before hitting the ground.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's thrilling encounter resulted in a draw.

Same went for Deontay Wilder, whose facial reaction contorted in a split second from one of glee to one of dumbfounded shock at an opponent who had withstood a devastating punch from the man who had recorded 39 knockouts in 40 professional wins up until Saturday's fight. I've spoken to him numerous times.

American Wilder has questioned Jack Reiss' count but Reiss says he wanted to give Fury "every opportunity".

Fury also confirmed they are aiming to hold the rematch in the summer of 2019.

However, both Fury and Wilder seem intent on a quick rematch.

"I saw his eyes roll slowly in the back of his head", Wilder said. "They welcome me with open arms".

"It might be a trilogy if we go as good as the first".

As The Ring explains, this 300,000 figure makes this pay-per-view one of the most successful of this decade, other than those involving massive stars like Floyd Mayweather, Canelo Alvarez and Manny Pacquiao. 'People started making them walk in a straight line, any drunk can walk in straight line.

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.

The report states that the break-even number of buys is 250,000, which means the early numbers could mean a big success for PBC and Showtime, who produced the pay-per-view. He was outboxed much of the way at Staples Center but was still surprised when Fury rose from that 12th-round knockdown - and that the referee didn't end the fight. "It's only right for us to go back in and do it again", Wilder said.
