WBC Officially Order Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Rematch

WBC Officially Order Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Rematch

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will do battle for the world heavyweight championship once again after the WBC officially sanctioned an immediate rematch for 'the Gypsy King'.

Despite being knocked down twice, including once in the 12th round when Wilder clocked him with a devastating shot, Fury believes he won the fight and says the judges denied him the greatest comeback in boxing history in scoring the Los Angeles fight a draw.

Both men immediately expressed their interest in a rematch and now it's been confirmed that Fury will get another chance to become world champion once again.

Dominic Breazeale is the mandatory challenger for Wilder's belt but the WBC are allowing the Alabama puncher to slug it out with Fury in his next fight thanks to a "unanimous agreement".

"Wilder and Fury gave boxing one of the best fights in the heavyweight division in a long time, which has created tremendous popular demand for the fans to see a rematch," a statement from the WBC said.

"The WBC is happy to confirm a direct rematch has been approved."

Las Vegas has been discussed as a location for the rematch but Frank Warren is pushing for it to happen on these shores - with Fury lobbying for it to take place at Old Trafford.

Old Trafford hasn't staged a boxing fight since 1993 where Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn went to battle in front of 42,000 people.
