EXCLUSIVE: Finkel, Davison on possibility of Wilder v Fury 2 at Wembley
WBN caught up with Shelly Finkel and Ben Davison recently for a chat at the Wilder v Fury press tour.
Finkel and Davison opened up on the tasty December 1 encounter on Showtime Pay-Per-View.
One question in particular interested WBN more than any other, the possibility of Tyson Fury gaining a rematch in the UK should he take Deontay Wilder’s WBC crown.
Although not wanting to jump the gun, and rightly so. Finkel and Davison were both open to the idea.
Fury has a rematch clause inserted into the contract from Wilder’s side and could host a huge blockbuster at the National Stadium in 2019.
Asked firstly on the current situation regarding Anthony Joshua, Finkel was focusing on Fury before Wilder eyes any further negotiations.
“Look, we couldn’t get someone else who kept saying he wanted to fight us. He (Joshua) didn’t so we fight the next best guy,” Finkel exclusively told World Boxing News.
“We believe as I’ve seen this other guy lately Fury might beat him. We’ll see what happens and what happens after that.”
Finkel stated in the press conference that Fury proved him wrong when he famously outpointed and dethroned Wladimir Klitschko.
Fury currently resides as a slight underdog once again. But could a rematch at Wembley should Fury win be on the cards?
“I don’t believe Fury will beat him so I don’t really want to think about it. We always protect ourselves in case.
“I don’t want to think that far ahead, but yes.”
Should the fight live up to its high expectations and fans willing to see it again; a mesmerizing Wembley Stadium rematch next year would be ideal.
When asked if this is likely or will someone else be looked at, Davison said: “Potentially, you don’t know, one fight at a time.
“This is the biggest fight that can be made at the minute in world boxing and it’s been made.
“Two giants, two freaks of nature and we need to just enjoy that first of all and go from there,” he concluded.
