It looks like a Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury rematch could be close at the moment as the two continue to speak about one another in the media and as a possible Joshua vs Wilder unification doesn't look likely next up at the moment. For now, Wilder will hang on to the WBC heavyweight strap.
'Just maintaining my fitness really, I'm as fit now as I was then, ' Fury told BT Sport.
Perhaps the peak of this coming in the 12th round when Wilder looked like he had knocked out Fury cold, only for the Manchester man to somehow not only get up and beat the count but in many people's opinion - also come back to win the round.
Prior to his interview with BT Sport, Tyson Fury had suggested that he may not have received a fair shake fighting Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles. "Tyson was disappointed with the judging with the last fight, as I was, so a lot of things need to be sorted but the United States is where they want it, probably in the second quarter". "Don't s-- yourself now mate!"
Fury's promoter Frank Warren has made it clear he believes his fighter, the former holder of three of the division's belts before his spectacular meltdown, is again the best in the business.
"I wouldn't want to go back to California, I didn't like working with the Californian commission and there were a lot of things we didn't like there", he said.
But either of those options seem unlikely for now with Joshua's next option looking to be unsafe Londoner Dillian Whyte.
"Those are the only fights Tyson Fury is interested in after reasserting himself as the world's best heavyweight".
'After that he will want Anthony Joshua and there is no reason from our side why this shouldn't become a reality'. "It is a fight the British public will demand to see before too long".
