Fury Wants Wilder After Landing Mega Deal

Tyson Fury says he is looking to secure a rematch with Deontay Wilder after the Englishman landed a reported £80m TV deal with ESPN.

Having fought a thrilling draw with Wilder, Fury has found himself back on the big stage and his newfound status has earned him a mega TV deal in the United States with broadcaster ESPN, while still remaining on BT Sport in the UK.

With a deal thought to be close on a rematch with Wilder in the US, Fury is eager to build on the revival in the heavyweight division, having previously struggled to cope with the success of his high-profile defeat of Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

“I feel good. I keep a habit of training every day, it keeps me warm,” he said. “My gist of it is ESPN is the biggest network in the world. I’ll have dual viewers in the USA and the UK. “It puts me right on top where I should be. They’ll now have to come through me.”

Speaking about the Wilder rematch, he added: “If I didn’t want to fight him then I wouldn’t have taken it. The fight is more makeable now because of this deal. “If you’re watching Deontay I’m coming for you baby! And this time you won’t rip me off.”
