Long before Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury announced that they would be fighting each other the world had a huge appetite for Wilder and Anthony Joshua to meet in order to unify the heavyweight division.
"Wilder is always risky, ofcourse, but Fury looked to have done enough". It also has included some of the depression, suicide and alcohol misuse cases.
"They said "we can fight Mickey Mouse and still sell all these tickets, we don't care if he never fights Deontay Wilder" they are his words, he said them".
"I felt that I threw the more effective punches". Perhaps there has been no such instance in the history so far.
Fury post-fight called the draw decision one of the worst decisions in boxing history. When he had given his statements over camera, he simply said that his comeback was really ionic. We are not here to get a 100-0 record.
"I hope the best do fight the best because it is great for the fans and great for boxing". He wrote, "I take nothing away from this fight, but we won this fight". Everyone got so many opinions and I respect everyone's opinion'. I don't know, " Fury said afterward.
"I wanted to give him every opportunity so I took my time".
"Let them continue to fight the second-tier fighters and hopefully one knocks him out". "But I being anxious got the best of me".
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.
Fury's bout with Wilder came nearly exactly three years after he'd made history by becoming Britain's first world heavyweight champion for six years by outpointing Wladimir Klitschko in his own back yard. "Both of those guys earned a long, long rest, but you heard in Deontay's voice the rest isn't going to be too long".
Admittedly his lead-up form to the blockbuster fight was scratchy at best and quite poor if you are being honest. "It might be a trilogy if it goes as good as the first". You ain't ever seen me in a boring fight.
Wilder has held the WBC title since January 2015 and Joshua has held all the other major versions of the heavyweight title since beating Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017. Fury remains the lineal champion. "And I'm ready to do it again".
