Frank Warren: Good Chance London Can Get Wilder-Fury II

Frank Warren plans to begin negotiations for a lucrative rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder imminently.

In his role as Fury's promoter, and alongside the British Boxing Board of Control, he has made a complaint to the WBC over the scores that meant their thrilling world heavyweight title fight, at Los Angeles' Staples Centre, concluded as a draw.

His hope is that the sanctioning body order an immediate rematch, but speaking post-fight – having already spoken of his desire for a rematch – Wilder also reiterated his willingness to fight IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.

A fight between the two champions for all four titles might even prove richer than Wilder-Fury II, but in the present circumstances would represent an injustice and also seems unlikely, with Joshua expected to fight Dillian Whyte at Wembley on April 13.

However, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn hinted he is travelling to Los Angeles to discuss a potential unification fight with Wilder for the Wembley date in the next year.

"First we need to find out what is happening with a Wilder-Fury rematch and whether the rematch clause we are hearing about is what it seems," said Hearn.

"If anything, the way that fight went on Saturday works in our favour in terms of getting Wilder. That has always been the fight we want because he has the last belt.

"It might also be the case that Wilder fancies his chances in a punch-out with AJ rather than another go at Fury. As far as AJ is concerned, he will fight anyone. He would love Wilder next and he has always wanted Fury.

"I am going out to LA and we will talk [with Wilder's representatives] this week. It is a fight we definitely want for April and will work hard to make."

The likeliest outcome would appear to be Wilder-Fury II in a Las Vegas casino, also in the coming spring.

With his fighter's reputation enhanced, Warren said: "You'd think they'd want the rematch. They've said they do.

"I think it's got a good chance of coming to London. You'd have a 90,000 gate at Wembley, so you're talking serious money. But with Tyson, he'll travel – he'll go where the money is, for March, April."

The UK has to be the fairest venue, however what with the British weather being so unpredictable a retractable roof has to be a must. So surely Wembley is the answer.
