Wilder v Fury rematch possible early this year - Warren

Tyson Fury has urged Deontay Wilder to get their heavyweight rematch sorted quickly, suggesting the American might be getting cold feet.

"I'm just maintaining my fitness really, I'm [as] fit now as I was then, same kind of thing, I'm ready to fight".

Undefeated former champion Fury fought to a thrilling, but controversial, split decision draw with American Wilder in Los Angeles last month.

BT Sport say Fury is looking in the "best shape of his life" and the replies from boxing fans suggest majority are in complete agreement with that assessment...

"I've always found that all the way through, generations, history of boxing, all the massive fights have always been in the US", stated Tyson Fury. "Don't s-- yourself now mate!"

Tyson Fury entered the fight 27-0, while Deontay Wilder sported a flawless professional record of 40-0. In the 12th round, Wilder knocked Fury to the canvas with a shot that could've been ruled a knockdown.

But either of those options seem unlikely for now with Joshua's next option looking to be risky Londoner Dillian Whyte.

"We're trying to make that fight at the moment, everyone wants the fight and most importantly the fighters want it", promoter Frank Warren told ESPN.

"Those are the only fights Tyson Fury is interested in after reasserting himself as the world's best heavyweight".

"It's Barry and Eddie Hearn's agenda that complicates it. Joshua is their cash cow and they want to keep milking it", he said of the prospects of a Fury-Joshua fight. And there is no reason from our side why this shouldn't become a reality.

Of course, there are a couple of people who thinks he's looking a little too thin and "overtrained" - but, by and large, most people are very impressed to see him in such great shape.
