The fight went the distance

After that happened, plans for Wilder-Fury got rolling.

Fury, who many observers believe did enough to win despite being knocked down twice during the fight, said on Monday he feared Wilder would seek to duck a rematch "at all costs".

Before the fight some had speculated that there was a rematch clause both ways for Wilder and Fury but now it doesn't appear to be the case on Fury's end at least.

Fury challenged Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title of the world. I'll give you a fair one when you're ready!

"My main goal is Tyson Fury. It's only right to give Fury a rematch as soon as possible", Wilder said on a teleconference with boxing reporters.

"You know, when it gets to a point where like, y'all don't want to fight?"

WBC heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder has revealed that he began camp for the Tyson Fury bout just 12 weeks after breaking his arm. The fight ended in a draw.

'He woke up from hell - I want to put him back there'.

Fury, who only returned to boxing this year after almost three years out of the ring as he struggled with depression, drink and drug problems, had said Monday he doubted Wilder would grant him a return.

"Everyone is talking about this fight", said Wilder.

However Wilder said a rematch was all but inescapable.

"When the rematch happens, there's no excuses". I don't see why we wouldn't.

"The ref Jack Reiss is an incredible ref in which I've had the pleasure to work with on several occasions and he did a great job". We can't get away from this fight. "It is a fight we definitely want for April and will work hard to make". I don't want no other fight to happen. What? Tyson Fury doesn't bring anything to the party?

Wilder, who on Saturday had spoken enthusiastically about a possible unification fight with Joshua, meanwhile poured cold water on the idea on Tuesday.

Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, however, hopes to open talks over Fury-Wilder II.

'They thought they were the only rulers of the heavyweight division.

"They had their opportunity. My kids have to make their own living and make their own way in life; they won't be living off my name or reputation because that's too easy a route", he continued.

In the first meeting, Wilder said he let the pressure of being in his first pay-per-view fight affect him. I don't know how this man got up. I'm a boxer not a businessman and I'll probably go down the same route as every other boxer - skint at the end of it all.

Maybe Nylander's first game will come two nights after that, when the Leafs play host to the Detroit Red Wings. Though Matthews has three goals and an assist in the past two games, there's some room for improvement.
