Tyson Fury: I Don't Care About The Belts, Really

Tyson Fury: I Don't Care About The Belts, Really

Fury outboxed Wilder for much of the fight, but was sent crashing to the canvas on two separate occasions.

Saturday's fight was a reported 17,000 sell-out, the first time this has happened in America for a number of years.

"I was sparring, just getting ready and I was getting the best of my sparring partner". The fight lived up to the hype more than ever, " Wilder wrote."At the end of the day, Boxing wins and the fans are the real victor and I can't wait for Wilder-Fury2".

Afterward, the British challenger said the two would "100 percent" meet again in the ring.

It now remains to be seen what direction Wilder goes in, with a rematch against Fury and the victor facing Joshua later in 2019 one possibility.

"Everyone is talking about this fight".

Rights holder BT Sport made the fight in Las Vegas available to United Kingdom customers on its Box Office service via BT TV, Sky TV and Virgin Media for UK£19.95 (US$25.40), while Showtime broadcast the event via pay-per-view (PPV) for US$74.99.

"To beat the champion you must dominate the champ and to me I was the more aggressive fighter and landed the more effective punches".

Less than a minute after he looked to be unconscious, Fury was back showboating with his hands behind his back and saw out the 12 rounds against Deontay Wilder.


Following Sunday's (NZ time) thrilling battle in Los Angeles, Joshua said on Twitter that he was willing to fight Wilder or Fury.

"So I felt a lot of pressure to bring this back and I always tried to be a man of my word. Nine out of 10 refs would have waved that off".

"When the rematch happens, there's no excuses".

"I feel like I was the more aggressor", he said. And I would probably end up like other boxers, cut off at the end of the account.

Joshua is keen to fight both Wilder and Fury.

He said: "I thought Fury performed really well and that Wilder was outboxed in a similar way he was against (Luis) Ortiz".

"He's my favourite fighter and in my opinion the best heavyweight there has ever been", said Tommy. "No one has talked about Joshua in I don't know how long and we plan on keeping it that way". Co-trainer Jay Deas said limiting the right in camp was a precautionary measure.

Shelly Finkel says Deontay Wilder is "very interested" in facing Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight unification fight after retaining his WBC belt courtesy of a contentious draw against Tyson Fury.

The fight, which controversially ended in a draw, was available via 133 piracy streaming domains and 80 YouTube live links, according to figures released by Muso.
