The highly anticipated rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder has officially been called off (for now at least).

It could make future negotiations with American Wilder more hard, given he is aligned with the Showtime network. "Don't use boxing politics as an excuse not to challenge me the lineal heavyweight champ!"

"Tyson would say things like 'you alright you big bum?' and all this sort of stuff". The WBC have confirmed that World Heavyweight champion Wilder will not fight the British boxer next.

'If you're watching, Deontay, I'm coming for you, and this time you can't rip me off'.

Negotiations were well underway for Wilder vs. Fury II to take place but talks seem to have stalled ever since "The Gypsy King" agreed a deal with ESPN which made them the exclusive broadcaster of his fights in the United States, bringing about a potential conflict with Wilder, who is contracted to Showtime.

Shares of Tesla down almost 0.4 percent at $297.44 in early afternoon trading, but recoverd from the lowest point of the day. But Gordon expects Musk will do it again, and that would trigger more significant action from the court.

'I don't blame you though, I probably would too if I saw my brains splashed all over the canvas'.

In a hugely anti-climactic move, Fury told the WBC on Tuesday that he intends to take an interim fight next ahead of a possible clash with Wilder in the autumn.

"I always thought he'd be the kind of guy who would want to right a wrong and fix that blip, that draw with Tyson Fury". There is now no word on when the fight will take place.

"We hope that we go Jarrell Miller, Deontay Wilder for the belt", said Hearn. However, Wilder hit Fury with two knockdowns in the fight, with the knockdown in the 12th round looking like it was going to take his opponent out.

Judge Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112 for Fury, while Alejandro Rochin favored Wilder 115-111.
