Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder 'could meet in spring rematch'

Deontay Wilder left connects with Tyson Fury of England during a WBC heavyweight championship boxing match Saturday Dec. 1 2018 in Los Angeles

Reigning titleholder and undefeated Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO) will put his WBC heavyweight title on the line against Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KO) tonight (Sat., Dec. 1, 2018) in one of the biggest boxing matches of the year which will go live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Fury, who many observers thought was unlucky not to be handed the decision despite two knockdowns, said he was ready to face Wilder again. The 6-foot-9 Fury spent almost every moment of the fight nimbly avoiding Wilder's punches in a masterful display - except for the two moments when the 6-foot-7 Wilder viciously knocked him to the canvas.

It is even likely that a London football stadium, like where Anthony Joshua has established himself as the IBF, WBA and WBO champion, would be considered as the venue for a potential rematch in the spring. Fury retained the lineal championship in his first defense.

This truly is one of the most anticipated heavyweight title showdowns we've seen in quite some time, and below is all the information you need to catch the historic fight on Saturday.

"I would love for it to be my next fight", Wilder said of the rematch. "Let's give the fans what they want to see". I went to Germany to fight [Wladimir] Klitschko, and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder.

"Tyson will fight in the United Kingdom again".

"I hope I did you all proud after almost three years out of the ring", Fury said. It doesn't matter to me where we do it.

"I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight", said Wilder afterwards.

Could a Joshua v Fury fight be next?

"I don't know if [a rematch] will be my next fight but would love it to be".

It wasn't until the ninth round that Wilder landed a heavy blow.

As he did when becoming the unified world champion just over three years ago, the 30-year-old used feints, footwork and fast hands to confuse his rival. Wilder struggled to land a punch as Fury's constant movement kept the champion off balance.

From the moment the fight was made, Wilder promised he would do to Fury what he had done to every man he has faced, and that meant knock him out. From our side we want that undisputed fight ASAP and that's Deontay Wilder in April 13 at Wembley. By the end of the round, they were going toe-to-toe as Fury regained his wits.

It was a matter of whether Fury could hang on to the final bell.
