Joshua ready to fight Wilder or Fury - when they are ready

06 December 2018

His hope is that the sanctioning body order an immediate rematch, but speaking post-fight - having already spoken of his desire for a rematch - Wilder also reiterated his willingness to fight IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.

When and Where Will Wilder-Fury Re-Match?

"I think it's got a good chance of coming to London".

FURY EPILOGUE Premieres on SHOWTIME Immediately Following The Delayed Telecast of the Dramatic Main Event The thrilling Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury heavyweight blockbuster, a sure-fire Fight of the Year candidate, will air on SHOWTIME this Saturday, December 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Negotiations for a fight between Wilder and Joshua broke down earlier this year, but Finkel is willing to go ahead provided that talks with Matchroom Boxing boss Eddie Hearn remain private. They (Wilder) wanted to get to you because they assumed you was finished!

"You can't take anything away from me or Wilder; we done our best".

Fury doesn't think Wilder is as keen as him on a rematch.

Wilder scored two knockdowns, but he was unable to put Fury away in a bout where the feared puncher had a lot of trouble with Brit's movement and defense.

If nothing else, both fighters dramatically raised their profile and proved that the heavyweight division is the glamour division of the sport.

Fury's promoter Frank Warren said his team would write to the WBC demanding another bout. "I've never seen a worse decision in my life". "How on Earth he gave the first four rounds to Wilder, I don't know".

Wilder twice knocked down Fury, but otherwise struggled against the Briton, who believed he should have won and was outraged with the judges' controversial failure to separate the pair. It was one of the most exciting fights - certainly the most exciting I've seen at heavyweight in America since Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko.

Joshua last fought in September, when he successfully defended his belts by stopping Alexander Povetkin in seven rounds at Wembley.
