Tyson Fury, left, of England, and Deontay Wilder embrace after their WBC heavyweight championship boxing match, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, in Los Angeles. I'll give you a fair one when you're ready!

Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title after the judges returned a split decision that earned much ire from pundits and fans, with most considering Fury the victor despite having to twice climb off the canvas.

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

"I was sparring, just getting ready and I was getting the best of my sparring partner". "You see many of these rich people's kids doing nothing because they had it too easy".

Afterward, the British challenger said the two would "100 percent" meet again in the ring. "It is a fight we definitely want for April and will work hard to make". I feel he had an army of prayers around him.

"It's no secret that Joshua did not want this fight, and he didn't want it for a reason -because Deontay Wilder is the most fiercest puncher in boxing history, in heavyweight division history".

"Twelve weeks before camp I broke my [right] arm", Wilder said. Many people felt it should have been waved off.

There is speculation that the rematch could take place between March or June, although a late spring or early summer date is more likely to give the fighters time to recover. I'm a boxer not a businessman and I'll probably go down the same route as every other boxer - skint at the end of it all.

However the 33-year-old Wilder on Tuesday rejected that claim in the strongest possible terms, saying a rematch with Fury was his priority rather than a unification bout with WBA, IBF and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.

Fury may not have got the result he wanted in Saturday after his fight was scored a draw with Wilder however it seems he has a bigger picture of what he wants to do with his life and money.

"We had to show the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best, and look at the outcome", Wilder said.

Tyson Fury has been in some big fights over the years, none more so than his fight with mental health issues including depression and suicidal thoughts.
