The set fought a draw with many people thinking 30-year-old Fury despite being knocked down twice, had won.
The first fight was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113, together with Fury’s second knock down in the 12th-round proving important.
The draw was that the first time either man had not been victorious in a fight that is professional, after Wilder had won his 40 competitions and Fury had won his 27 bouts.
“A lot of people doubted Fury because of the outside things happening in his own life but he had six months of training, ” he showed up and gave a terrific performance,” added Wilder.
“It had been so controversial and anywhere I go it’s all that folks are talking about and they would like to see a rematch. I can not view anybody being drawn with by myself – . That really is what people desire and I’m really so excited.
“His team will be all fearful and they don’t want him to fight however Tyson Fury is a man of his word.”
“Everybody has to fight everybody else,” said Wilder. “We have to move on with my career and they (Joshua’s promoters) tried to slow it down since they believed they were the man of their branch and that which ran around them.”
