Deontay Wilder hoping for a rematch with Tyson Fury 'ASAP'

The fight went the distance

Deontay Wilder has made a startling revelation about a pre-fight injury that made his heavyweight blockbuster against Tyson Fury even more improbable. I'll give you a fair one when your ready. "I'm ready whenever he's ready to do it. I'm quite sure [they want] to see the top Brit fighting the top Brit", he told the Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT.

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

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.

"Everyone is talking about this fight".

Wilder said being more than 50 pounds lighter than Fury at the time of the fight and the after-effects of surgery on his right arm also contributed to his sub-par performance.

"But seriously I want the rematch before any other fight".

"He woke up from hell - I want to put him back there", Wilder said.

While most boxers seem to be more focused on making it through their career without a loss, Fury has other aspirations. "Nine out of 10 refs would have waved that off".

"Both sides definitely want (a rematch) to happen".

There is speculation that the rematch could take place between March or June, although a late spring or early summer date is more likely to give the fighters time to recover.

In the first meeting, Wilder said he let the pressure of being in his first pay-per-view fight affect him. "I was working from very young, everything I wanted in life I had to work for". "I don't really have much use for it, I'm not interested in becoming a millionaire or a billionaire".

However the 33-year-old Wilder on Tuesday rejected that claim in the strongest possible terms, saying a rematch with Fury was his priority rather than a unification bout with WBA, IBF and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.

"I want to fight the best that is willing to fight the best and with that being said, Tyson Fury is willing to fight the best", Wilder told Sirius XM.

"Wilder came over to the United Kingdom and showed up (at a previous Joshua fight)".

"I am going out to LA and we will talk (with Wilder's representatives) this week".
