The fight went the distance The fight went the distance

The fight at the Staples Centre was controversially called a draw, allowing Wilder to retain his title, but the American is keen for a rematch with the British boxer to end any debate about the pair. The two heavyweights fought to a split-decision draw Saturday night in Los Angeles in one of the bigger heavyweight bouts in America in years.

Wilder said being more than 50 pounds lighter than Fury at the time of the fight and the after-effects of surgery on his right arm also contributed to his sub-par performance. "I'm ready whenever he's ready to do it".

"I said to Deontay -Deontay's got the texts - I said, 'I'm sorry what's happened to you, ' and I said, 'But you offer me the fight, and I will not turn it down".

Joshua last fought in September, when he successfully defended his belts by stopping Alexander Povetkin in seven rounds at Wembley. "I'm ready whenever he's ready to do it".

"He woke up from hell - I want to put him back there", Wilder said. "Many people felt that should have been waved off".

Fury also said he believed Wilder's efforts to make the fight with Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) were legitimate. "I don't want any other fights to happen between him and I (meeting again)".

Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza said May or June might be more likely, giving the fighters more time to recover. It's a great fight and the build-up has already started.

Showtime will replay the pay-per-view fight this Saturday (9 p.m. ET), followed by the debut of the "All Access: Wilder vs. Fury" epilogue episode. "I want to give Tyson Fury the rematch ASAP". "I pressed that too much".

Had Wilder beaten Fury, he would have sought a unification fight against Joshua, but that has been put on the backburner as he plans to settle his score with Fury. In the aftermath of that fight, Wilder took to Instagram and said: "the fans are the real victor and I can't wait for Wilder Fury 2".

"Everyone is talking about this fight", said Wilder.

"I am going out to LA and we will talk (with Wilder's representatives) this week".

"I can't wait for #WilderFury2 to end the controversial talk once and for all", Wilder wrote on Instagram.
