    No controversy on this card for me.

    Same. I think it was reasonable and can be justified.

    Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder: Frank Warren keen to bring likely spring rematch to Wembley Stadium

    Frank Warren has confirmed he plans to begin negotiations for a lucrative rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder imminently.

    In his role as Fury's promoter, and alongside the British Boxing Board of Control, Warren has made a complaint to the WBC over the scores that meant their thrilling world heavyweight title fight, at Los Angeles' Staples Centre, concluded as a draw.

    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.

    A fight between the two champions for all four titles might even prove richer than Wilder-Fury II, but in the present circumstances would represent an injustice and also seems unlikely, with Joshua expected to fight Dillian Whyte at Wembley on April 13.

    The likeliest outcome would appear to be Wilder-Fury II in a Las Vegas casino, also in the coming spring.

    With his fighter's reputation enhanced, Warren said: “You'd think they'd want the rematch. They've said they do.

    “I think it's got a good chance of coming to London. You'd have a 90,000 gate at Wembley, so you're talking serious money. But with Tyson, he'll travel - he'll go where the money is, for March, April.



    “I find it invigorating. From where he's come from, I just really enjoy it. They said he wasn't going to sell any tickets. They said it wouldn't go ahead - well it did go ahead, didn't it?

    “They said it was going to be a boring fight. It was one of the most exciting fights - certainly the most exciting I've seen at heavyweight in America since Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko [in 2003].

    “I've worked with Mike Tyson, Frank Bruno - all of those. Now, Fury's the people's champion.”

    That Fury succeeded in performing to such a high level following a period of only 14 unremarkable rounds in three years that featured significant ring-rust, him gaining in weight to 27 stones, taking cocaine and contemplating suicide fully vindicated his trainer Ben Davison.

    The previously-unproven Davison, 26, had been considered a potential weakness in Fury's preparations but in only their third bout together he oversaw a performance that suggests the fighter is again the world's finest heavyweight.

    The 30-year-old Fury said: "Everybody said Ben couldn't do it and he'd fold under pressure.

    "But I didn't see any folding, Ben. Did you, son? He didn't fold. I knew I'd made the right choice in old Davison here. He did a fantastic job. Nobody in the world could have done a better job than Ben.

    "He gave me clear, calm instructions, even when I was down. Ever since me and Ben started working together, I've felt I made the right choice. If this man ain't the highest candidate for trainer of the year, then I haven't seen one."

    Eddie Hearn reveals Anthony Joshua’s reaction to Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury draw, unfazed by rivals

    The promoter insists that AJ has no fear of the Gypsy King or Bronze Bomber

    Eddie Hearn says Anthony Joshua is far from intimidated by Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury after watching their fight on Saturday night.

    The unified heavyweight world champion’s two main rivals clashed in a sensational bout which most believed the Brit had won, however it was scored a split draw by the three judges in America.

    Now, Matchroom’s Hearn has told the Mail how AJ reacted to the bout.

    “I have spoken to Joshua since Saturday and his position is unchanged – he believes he will stop anyone put in front of him,” detailed the promoter.

    Regarding his own personal opinion, he added: “I was very impressed with Fury on Saturday. I had him winning the fight by two rounds.

    “But we disagree when people say Joshua isn’t the main man in the division anymore and we look forward to him demonstrating it again.”



    When asked about how Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury’s draw affects Anthony Joshua’s future going forwards, Eddie Hearn analysed the result’s consequences from various perspectives.

    He first stated that everything of course depends on the terms of any potential rematch clause in the contract, but added that the emergence of two marquee heavyweights should be a positive thing for AJ.

    “If anything, the way that fight went on Saturday works in our favour in terms of getting Wilder.

    “That has always been the fight we want because he has the last belt.

    “Now, let’s say he had beat Fury in two rounds – the negotiation will be a lot harder than after a draw where many think he was lucky to keep his WBC title. That goes in our favour.

    “It might also be the case that Wilder fancies his chances in a punch-out with AJ rather than another go at Fury.

    “As far as AJ is concerned, he will fight anyone. He would love Wilder next and he has always wanted Fury.

    “I am going out to LA and we will talk [with Wilder’s representatives] this week. It is a fight we definitely want for April and will work hard to make.

    “Before we were looking at Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte or Dereck Chisora if he beats Whyte for April 13. Now we can put Fury on that list.”

    The Gypsy King was in highs spirits after his bout with the WBC champion ended in a dramatic tie

    Tyson Fury brilliantly belted out a rendition of American Pie at his post-fight press conference and got his trainer and the entire media to join in following his draw with Deontay Wilder.

    Despite the disappointment of failing to capture the WBC heavyweight crown from the American, Fury was in high spirits as he sung the 1971 classic by Don McLean.



    With Fury as conductor, the media joined in as did his coach Ben Davison, while veteran promoter Frank Warren appeared slightly more reluctant to sing along.

    It is not the first time the Gypsy King has sung after a fight, famously serenading his wife Paris with a rendition of Aerosmith’s ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing’ following his victory over Wladimir Kilitschko in 2015.

    Having been knocked down twice in the fight at the Staples Center, including in the final round, Fury dominated much of the action, controlling the champion with his jab and clever movement.

    Bizarrely, judge Alejandro Rochin scored the bout 115-111 in favour of Wilder, but Fury was not bitter, instead insisting he will enjoy Christmas and assess his options in 2019.



    “I think I had holy hands upon me to lift me back to my feet [in the 12th round] – I don’t know what happened,” Fury said.

    “It was a great fight. I am not going to complain or call him names.

    “I am not the lineal champion for nothing. It was a great experience.

    “A year ago today I weighed 400lbs. It is proof anyone can come back from anything.

    “I am only a normal man. I was not fighting for myself. When I was down I had to get up for everyone around the world with mental health problems.

    “I am not going to cry. I am going to enjoy Christmas and recalculate in January.

    “We will see what our next move is.”

    First link I came across. He never makes a great deal of sense to me to be honest but he says he broke it 12 weeks before camp.

    Well i am glad Fury did not suck and made for a great fight we need that in HW division. I respect that Wlad was champ for 10 years with shit ton of defences and hell he did not even lose again till he was 39 but he was boring.

    12 weeks BEFORE Camp! Was the fight even announced? He had plenty of time to pull out, bullshitting wanker! He must’ve broke both arms, that’s why he can’t box.

    Is it just me, but what is pissing me off more than anything, is that despite the Fact that Fury did so well and takes massive credit for his performance, WHERE THE FUCK IS @ross ?

    I actually tend to agree. First off, Usyk probably weighs about the same as Wilder. He is 4 inches shorter but is a much better boxer than Fury and I don’t see him getting caught like Fury did. Fury is really tall and much heavier than Usyk but doesn’t have huge power. I think Usyk would probably fight in the pocket to nullify the reach.

    Quick question to @Ron Swanson . it actually was broke 12 weeks before he started camp. So this would’ve been exactly around the time that Team Wilder was telling everyone they had offered $50 million to Joshua and you were calling Hearn a liar etc.etc.
    Why would they do that if Wilder had broken his arm? Hmmmmm.

    Called it . Said it after Stiverne too I think.

    Him and his people and reporters need to get the story straight though. There are different direct quotes from him where he says he broke his arm and had surgery ...and another where he said he broke his hand "but doesn't like the make excuses".

    Round by round punch stats. Bit low output even for heavyweights. 8 rounds had two connected punches between em(just about all in favour of fury), 2 rounds had only one difference. Wilder was throwing more very round. But landing a bit less most rounds.
