Sports WBC will consider ordering Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury rematch, praise Fury and defend judges Published 6 days ago on December 6, 2018 By Frank Couper Share Tweet SECOND FIGHT The Gypsy King’s promoter Frank Warren previously said he would write to the governing body, petitioning for a second bout The WBC have exclusively told talkSPORT.com that they will consider requests for a Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury rematch “accordingly and immediately.” Following the heavyweight fighters’ heavily disputed draw in LA on Saturday, the Brit’s promoter Frank Warren declared that he would write to the organisation and call for a return fight based on the belief that their man should have emerged victorious. Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder’s fight was declared a draw However, Wilder is due to defend his WBC heavyweight title against long-time mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale next – something that could have put a spanner in the works for the rematch. Now though, the governing body have reassured fans that they will work to make the best heavyweight fights, and so consider any rematch request. “At the WBC convention held in Kiev in October, it was ruled to facilitate instances that the best fights are staged, the heavyweight division included,” a WBC spokesperson told talkSPORT.com “Tyson Fury was outstanding last Saturday, one of the best performances that has been seen in a long time. “If a request for a rematch is received, the WBC will process it accordingly and immediately.” The WBC championship belt Warren also heavily criticised the scoring of the fight – particularly by judge Alejandro Rochin, who had it 115-111 in Deontay Wilder’s favour. The promoter declared that he would ask for a review of the decision, however this doesn’t seem to be something the WBC are interested in entertaining. The spokesperson continued: “The ring officials, who worked the Wilder vs Fury bout are three people who are highly honourable and upright. “Our organisation will not accept any kind of questioning whatsoever in relation to our officials. The bout was very close and there were two knockdowns.
