WE GO AGAIN

It sounds like we can expect to see round 13 next year

Deontay Wilder has stated that he wants to rematch Tyson Fury in March or April 2019.

The pair fought to a controversial draw on Saturday night – with many thinking the Brit should have got the verdict – and the Bronze Bomber wants to answer all questions about his performance.

“I’m willing and ready to give Fury the opportunity asap,” said Wilder.

“It’s only right to give Fury a rematch as soon as possible. I’m ready whenever he’s ready to do it, I’m ready to give the fans what they wanna see and end this talk once and for all.

“I don’t know how this man got up. He don’t even know how he got up. I believe God got this man up for the rematch.

“He woke up from hell and I’m willing to put him back there.”

Tyson Fury suggested soon after the bout that Deontay Wilder may not want to share the ring with him again, however the American has now publicly assured him this is not the case.

The WBC champion wants to return next spring to settle the score.

“Some people feel like I don’t want the rematch,” Wilder continued, “Why would I not? I’m the baddest man on the planet.

“Early next year, I’m ready to go, maybe March, maybe April. I don’t want no-one else.“

However, Stephen Espinoza of US fight broadcaster Showtime is sceptical over these potential dates and added: “May would be great, June would be great. Personally, April sounds a little quick to me.”
