Frank Warren plans to open negotiations for a lucrative rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder immediately.
In his role as Fury’s promoter and in conjunction with the British Boxing Board of Control, he has made a complaint to WBC on points that meant their exciting world-class title fight, in Los Angeles’s Staples Center, finishing .
His hope is that the sanction body orders an immediate rematch but speaks after the match – has already talked about his wish for a rematch – Wilder also reiterated his will to fight IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.
A match between the two champions for all four titles can even be richer than the Wilder-Fury II, but under the current circumstances, it seems unlikely, with Joshua expected to fight Dillian Whyte in Wembley on April 13th.
The most likely result seems to be Wilder-Fury II in a Las Vegas casino, even in the spring.
With his fighter Warren said, “You would think they want the rematch, they have said they do. I think it’s a good chance to come to London. You would have a 90,000 gate at Wembley, so you talk serious money, but with Tyson he will travel. He’ll go where the money is, for March, April.
“I think it’s refreshing. Wherever he’s from, I just like that. They said he would not sell any tickets. They said it would not go on – yes it went on, did not it?
“They said it would be a boring game. It was one of the most exciting battles – the most exciting I’ve seen in America in heavyweight since Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko [in 2003]. I’ve worked with Mike Tyson, Frank Bruno, all of these. Now the fury is the people’s master. “
