Deontay Wilder picks between Fury and Joshua for preferred next opponent

Deontay Wilder picks between Fury and Joshua for preferred next opponent

Deontay Wilder has left no doubt that he wants a rematch with Tyson Fury as his next fight after stating that he has no interest in facing Anthony Joshua.

"I'm willing and ready to give Fury the opportunity ASAP".

Hopefully the rematch can be made as soon as possible. "I'm ready whenever he's ready to do it".

"This is the biggest fight still in the heavyweight division, this is the most exciting fight in the heavyweight division and we're ready to give the fans what they want to see". Although Wilder dropped Fury twice during the fight, the Englishman dominated for long stretches and was ahead on most analysts' scorecards by the end of the 12th round.

Fury stepped up to face Wilder after negotiations for a clash between the WBC champion and Joshua, the WBA, WBO and IBF title holder, broke down. "I broke my arm from right here [wrist], all the way up here [inside elbow] I got cut".

"I turned him over to my people, they showed him what was going on".

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

He indicated the rematch might happen as early as March or April. "We were able to see what he was able to do - get up", Wilder said.

"I saw his eyes roll slowly in the back of his head", Wilder said. But they led people on. "Nine out of 10 refs would have waved that off". He would love Wilder next and he has always wanted Fury.

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.

"The ref Jack Reiss is an wonderful ref in which I've had the pleasure to work with on several occasions and he did a great job". "It's only right for us to go back in and do it again", Wilder said.

'I think it will happen, ' the Bronze Bomber continued.

"No-one has talked about Joshua in I don't know how long and we plan on keeping it that way".

"Some people feel I don't want the rematch". I'm the baddest man on the planet.

The American pugilist remain unbeaten in his professional career after sharing spoils with challenger Fury in Los Angeles over the weekend. "I think the fans deserve the rematch".

Wilder did however claim that the fight is inevitable. Everyone's going to tune in, so it's going to be an even bigger event.

"If it doesn't happen, it'll be a shame for the heavyweight division".

Showtime will replay the pay-per-view fight this Saturday (9 p.m. ET), followed by the debut of the "All Access: Wilder vs. Fury" epilogue episode. So if they said May, that would be great.

The unbeaten Briton, whose camp failed to reach agreement with Wilder's for a 2018 showdown, has now responded to those comments and said he is ready to face either of his heavyweight rivals. To settle the score once and for all, who really won.

"When you coming in here fighting the champion, you've got to be dominant". Oh, my god! Can't wait for the second one. Their ego got the best of them. The fight lived up to the hype more than ever.

"I'm just an outsider with an opinion buy it's a situation that is happening all over the world, especially in the United Kingdom as well".

"We wanted to keep that sowed up, we don't make excuses".
