Referee Reiss rejects Fury long-count claims

Fight statistics show Tyson Fury convincingly out-punched Deontay Wilder by a huge margin in their heavyweight boxing showdown.

When it got to the dramatic 12th round, Wilder landed 11 of the 32 punches he threw, which was the best strike rate from either boxer over the fight.

Earlier this week, Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel said the 33-year-old was "very interested" in fighting Joshua.

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

When Will Fury or Wilder Fight Joshua?

Responding to Finkel's comments as reported by Sky Sports, Joshua wrote: "What took this fool so long?"

"Like we ain't been interested?" They (Wilder) wanted to get to you because they assumed you was finished! "Either one of you".

Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, has gone to Los Angeles this week and says he is hoping to talk about an April date between his fighter and Wilder.

He said it will be given a budget of A$7.5m (£4.3m, $5.4m) and will begin investigating early next year with the aim of releasing a final report in December.

Joshua has the IBF, WBA "super", WBO and IBO heavyweight belts that Wilder is seeking.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder "can't wait" to face Tyson Fury again after their controversial draw in Los Angeles.

"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.

WBC heavyweight champion Wilder knocked Fury down twice in the fight but besides that, the Gypsy King seemed to be in total control of the bout.

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

That Fury succeeded in performing to such a high level following a period of only 14 unremarkable rounds in three years that featured significant ring-rust, him gaining in weight to 27 stones, taking cocaine and contemplating suicide fully vindicated his trainer Ben Davison.

Both men left the boxing world in awe after one of the most incredible title fights in recent memory, withFury somehow recovering from what appeared to be a devastating knockout blow.

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