Tyson Fury: I Don't Care About The Belts, Really

Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, however, hopes to open talks over Fury-Wilder II.

Wilder (40-0-1) knocked Fury (27-0-1) down twice late in the fight, but many boxing experts agreed he was outboxed for much of the fight.

Wilder said the bright lights of his first pay-per-view fight and a crowd of almost 18,000 fans caused nerves that led him to hunt for a knockout as opposed to staying with his game plan.

The American pugilist remain unbeaten in his professional career after sharing spoils with challenger Fury in Los Angeles over the weekend. He said Joshua and his team are "getting what they deserve" by being sidelined from his two most high-profile potential opponents. "I promise you.' I said I'm a fighting man and I'll step up and represent my country".

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.

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

"I seen this guy's eyes roll slowly in the back of his head".

However, Wilder told The Times that "AJ" had missed his chance, with all signs pointing towards a rematch with Fury.

"Both sides definitely, seriously want it to happen [again]", Wilder said. Many people felt it should have been waved off.

"Twelve weeks before camp I broke my [right] arm", Wilder told a group of reporters on the streets of LA on Monday, adding: "We kept that a secret".

Lou DiBella, Wilder's promoter, is a big WWE fan, and Fury's ability to beat the count reminded him of a particular wrestler.

"Some people feel I don't want the rematch". However, the allure of one of the biggest ever British fights may be enough to ensure they set their differences aside and make a deal.

"The second fight is all about proving a point".

"If you did a poll now with the fans for Anthony Joshua's next fight... what do you think would be top of the pops there?"

"We wanted to keep that sowed up, we don't make excuses. I know I won that fight, I know it and the world knows it, too". But you'll get the best of Deontay Wilder.
