Many fans believe Tyson Fury should have been awarded the win over Deontay Wilder

Wilder's co-manager, Shelly Finkel says the American is "very interested" in putting his WBC belt on the line against Joshua, who holds the WBA, IBF and WBO belts.

The SHOWTIME presentation of the Wilder vs. Fury, a bout that has been hailed as “…the greatest night for boxing in the recent memory, ” by Yahoo! I can beat them all but they need to fight me.

Following a controversial split-decision draw on December 1st, both promoter Frank Warren and the British Boxing Board of Control are set to file a complaint over the result of Tyson Fury's WBC world title opportunity against Deontay Wilder.

Wilder faced the two toughest opponents of his career this year including a spectacular knockout win over Cuban slugger Luis Ortiz in a Fight of the Year candidate in March.

"I've got a amusing feeling he's going to get his running shoes out and stay away from me at all costs", he told Britain's ITV network.

Fury doesn't think Wilder is as keen as him on a rematch.

Fury showed his slick and quick movement throughout the fight and managed to dodge most of the big punches that Wilder was throwing.

"I'm very happy with the fight, but put it this way, if I didn't get knocked down twice in that fight, on one of the judge's scorecards I'd have still lost, so he needs banning from boxing forever because he clearly can't judge."

"If it's something that people would like to see again we would absolutely love to do it".

Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, however, hopes to open talks over Fury-Wilder II.

"I'm only getting better, and better and better".

"Everybody out there who has the same problems I've been suffering with, I did that for you guys".

If everything is in the paper, I have no desire to discuss anything, and let him go fight who he wants.

Following the fight he said: "It's an iconic comeback, isn't it?"

Joshua last fought in September, when he successfully defended his belts by stopping Alexander Povetkin in seven rounds at Wembley.
