LONDON – Deontay Wilder on Tuesday called for an immediate rematch with Tyson Fury, rejecting the claims that he would attempt to avoid a return fight after their epic heavyweight duel in Los Angeles.
“I’m ready to do it again,” Wilder told reporters on a conference call.
“My main goal is Tyson Fury. I’m looking forward to giving him the rematch as soon as possible.
“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.”
Wilder said this time around he wont make a mistake if a possible rematch happens, “He woke up from hell – I want to put him back there,” Wilder said.
“I’ve got a funny feeling he’s going to get his running shoes out and stay away from me at all costs,” Fury said.
Wilder added that a rematch is unavoidable, “Both sides definitely want (a rematch) to happen. I don’t see why we wouldn’t. It’s a great fight and the build-up has already started. We can’t get away from this fight.
“It’s only right for us to go back in and do it again. I don’t want no other fights to happen between him or I before then. I want to give Tyson Fury the rematch ASAP.”
