Tyson Fury talks Deontay Wilder fight, rematch on Good Morning Britain
Tyson Fury made an appearance on Good Morning Britain on Monday to discuss his amazing performance on Saturday night.
The 30 year-old out-boxed WBC Champion Deontay Wilder at The Staples Center but lost out of the belt due to eyebrow-raising scorecards.
A Mexican judge carded 115-111 in favor of Wilder, having the fight even through ten rounds with two knockdown sessions on top.
Fury’s compatriot, Phil Edwards had the contest even, whilst the American official had it 114-112 in favor of the lineal title holder.
WBN had it the same at 114-112, with both men contracted for a rematch in the next few months.
Since the draw, Fury and Wilder’s stock has risen considerably as a second fight lies in wait for next year.
Despite being written into the deal, Fury said he’s not too hopeful Wilder will want to trade blows with him again.
After the encounter, the fighters said the following:
“I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight,” said Wilder, who has recorded a knockdown in each of his 41 pro fights. He was defending his WBC belt for the eighth time since 2015.
“We poured our hearts out tonight. We’re both warriors, but with those two drops I think I won the fight.”
Fury saw it differently, stating that he gave it everything he had.
“We’re on away soil, I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won that fight,” said England’s Fury, whose amazing comeback continues following a two and a half-year absence from the sport.
Fury was suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, plus mental health issues.
“I hope I did you all proud after nearly three years out of the ring. No way, I was never going to be knocked out tonight. I showed good heart to get up. I came here tonight and I fought my heart out.”
