The big secret Wilder kept quiet before Fury fight

The big secret Wilder kept quiet before Fury fight

"I'm ready whenever he's ready", Wilder said. "I'm ready whenever he's ready to do it".

Despite rarely putting on fights between his stable and Matchroom rival Hearn, Warren believes the fans want them to organise a fight that would draw huge interest. Both sides want this.

"Everyone is talking about this fight", said Wilder. - When you go against the champion, you have to dominate.

In attempting to explain reasons for not being able to completely knock out Fury or win the bout on points, Wilder told reporters in LA that he had actually fractured his arm in the lead-up to the fight.

Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title in a thrilling and controversial draw with Fury in Los Angeles on Saturday.

"I was just patient and I went down to make sure what I was doing was correct because I want to do what's best for boxing". "Many people felt that should have been waved off. Nine times out of 10 the referee would wave that off". I predicted an early stoppage win for Deontay and I would still favor him in a rematch. But Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza indicated May or June would be a better fit in order to allow these two giants to recover from the hard fight they engaged in.

In the first meeting, Wilder said he let the pressure of being in his first pay-per-view fight affect him. "It's only right for us to go back in and do it again".

"I've knocked guys out so many times with that very move he was doing. I pressed that too much".

"I don't want to take nothing away from the fight but like I said, I've got a few questions that I ask myself that are circulating around, about the count", Wilder said in his post-fight press conference.

"We had to show the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best, and look at the outcome", Wilder said. You've got to take the title, and I don't think Fury took the title.

"12 weeks before the camp I broke my hand".

Deontay Wilder has opened up about the potential of a fight with Anthony Joshua by taking massive aim at the British boxer and his promoter Eddie Hearn whilst also revealing he's looking forward to a rematch with Tyson Fury.

Commenting on the findings, CEO and co-founder of Muso Andy Chatterley said: "This fight was always going to draw in a massive audience, and it certainly did that".
