Fury: I Have a Feeling Wilder Will Run, Avoid Rematch at All Costs!

Tyson Fury said on Monday WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will try to avoid a rematch with him "at all costs" after their epic draw in Los Angeles.

Wilder retained his belt on Saturday after a thrilling 12-round battle ended in a split decision draw at the Staples Center. The judges all had different views, with a score of 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury, and 113-113 for the draw.

The result means the American is still in a position to achieve his dream of unifying the heavyweight division against Fury's fellow Briton Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO versions of the title.

Joshua is scheduled to fight again on April 13th at Wembley Stadium in London. His number one choice for the opponent position is Wilder - but that all depends on the financial terms of the fight.

Should Wilder go in another direction, then the upcoming rematch between Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora - which takes place on December 22 - would create the frontrunner for the April date.

After the bout on Saturday, Wilder said he would prefer to target Joshua's titles in a bid to unify the division but would be satisfied with either a rematch against Fury or a chance to take on Joshua.

But Fury, who overcame two knockdowns in the fight, said that Wilder could try to avoid him.

"I've got a funny feeling he's going to get his running shoes out and stay away from me at all costs," he told Britain's ITV network.

"I'm only getting better, and better and better. I can beat them all but they need to fight me. We need to give Britain the biggest fight in British boxing history and that's me and Joshua.

"Let's make it happen. The country wants it, I want it, everybody wants it. The only people who don't seem to want it is their team," he added.

Wilder and Fury would BOTH beat Joshua Fury is a much better fighter than AJ..... and if Wilder can drop Fury TWICE, then he can drop Joshua 3x I think that if Wilder drops Joshua hard, he will stop him

Wilder said their rematch is next. Then probably the 3rd one. Three in a row between fighters I believe has happened before. AJ appears to have the worst chin of the 3.

[QUOTE=HeadShots;19322364]correct. particularly that last shot. Wilder's punch travelled with Fury's dip and hit him square. he learned Fury's movements by then. He's more clever than most people give him credit for.[/QUOTE] Or he actually is a very limited boxer who…
