Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren says Deontay Wilder’s camp is likely to invoke their clause to organize a third fight between the couple.
After their first fight was a shared decision draw in December 2018, Fury Wilder dominated on Saturday night in Las Vegas, with the American’s corner in the towel in the seventh round.

The humiliation of Saturday was Wilder’s first-ever defeat because he was bullied around the ring by an inspired and still undefeated Fury.
The bronze bomber was beaten in the third and fifth round before his corner admitted the fight just past half the stage, despite Wilder’s protests.
Undoubtedly one of the most impressive victories ever of a British heavyweight, now talks about the next move from Fury and a potential blockbuster with Joshua.

Warren said about that match-up: “That would have been the biggest sporting event in the UK since England won the World Cup. You could not get a ticket for it.
“The stumbling block is that he [Joshua] must fight against Pulev. If I were him, I wouldn’t fight Pulev, I’d even leave the belts to fight Tyson.
“He should not take the risk. I prefer that he does not take the risk, I prefer that Wilder does not take the rematch and let’s move on. “
