Fury: Wilder Rematch Likely For March or April, When Time is Right

Tyson Fury does not expect a rematch with Deontay Wilder to take place until March or April of next year.

Fury fought Wilder in December 2018, and they fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in Los Angeles.

Wilder was back in action last Saturday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and scored a brutal first round knockout of Dominic Breazeale.

They were on pace to have a rematch, but then Fury walked away from the table to sign a co-promotional deal with ESPN and Top Rank. Wilder currently fights under the banner of Premier Boxing Champions, who have content deals with Fox Sports and Showtime.

Fury is scheduled to fight again on June 15th, when he makes his Las Vegas debut against Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand.

He aims to stay busy in 2019, but none of his fights will be against Wilder.

Fury states that he won't be following the schedule of anyone else but himself.

Beyond the fight in June, he wants to fight at least two more times this year.

"This rematch has got to happen, but it won’t be in May, June, July or August. This fight, I’m being told, is likely to happen in March, April of next year. That’s the dates I’ve been given," Fury explained on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.

"I’ll probably have another couple of fights in between then if all goes well. I want to be active. I’m not playing anyone else’s games.

"I’ve got to think about me and my career, and my family, and my life. I’m not going to put my career on hold to wait for X, Y, Z people to take fights, no. I’m taking my career and destiny and holding them in my hands and when the time is right, we’ll do the fight."

Personally think theres a 0% chance of a rematch happening while Fury is with Espn This is just another Bud / Spence situation Hope I’m wrong

Wilder should look the way of Joshua, not Fury. Fury is as sleek in the ring as outside.

[QUOTE=BillyBoxing;19764897]I dunno if it's unethical, I can understand that he wants a network/career path with TR ESPN instead of always being the challenger fighting the champ in his hometown. There is no deal if nothing is signed. They were in…

[QUOTE=champion4ever;19761844]I wasn't even referring to their first bout. I thought Fury fought superbly in that fight in which I thought he won. I am only referring to the rematch that he stalled during the negotiations. He originally agreed to the…
