Wilder v Fury rematch possible early this year - Warren

Tyson Fury- WBC World Heavyweight Title

Tyson Fury's publicly told Deontay Wilder "don't sh*t yourself" as talks are underway over a potential rematch.

Tyson Fury - and not Anthony Joshua - will fight Deontay Wilder at a US venue in the first half of 2019, promoter Frank Warren has told ESPN.

In the previous fight, Fury's jab was slick and he was in the best shape of his career as he dominated the majority of the encounter.

However, as the heavyweight division hits 2019, it is clear that Deontay Wilder wants a shot at current WBO, IBF and WBA champion Anthony Joshua as he looks for his next big pay day.

"The venue is looking like the United States, that's where the money is", Warren said. Tyson was disappointed with the judging with the last fight.

Vegas would be one of the options.

He [Eddie Hearn] says all these things, but what he says and does are two different things. "I wouldn't want to go back to California".

Fossilised blue tooth shows Medieval women’s involvement in manuscript production
One of the authors, Ohio State University professor Alison Beach, says it's "kind of bombshell" for the field of medieval history. Radiocarbon dating of the skeleton revealed the 45- to 60-year-old woman died between 997 and 1162.

Tyson Fury promoter Frank Warren has accused Barry and Eddie Hearn of stopping Anthony Joshua from facing off against other top heavyweights, as they attempt to extract every bit of value from their prized asset.

While both Whyte and Miller are notable heavyweight contenders, Joshua already defeated Whyte by seventh-round knockout in 2015 and Miller has yet to really establish himself as an elite heavyweight worthy of a title challenge. We all know that.

"We're not complicated, Tyson is the most uncomplicated person you will meet, and he will fight anyone", Warren told ESPN.

Wilder made the mistake of trying to out-box the unorthodox fighter, and from the get-go, the defending champ struggled with Fury's reach and quality.

While Joshua, along with his promoter, Eddie Hearn, have repeatedly said Wilder was the target for Joshua's April 13 bout at Wembley Stadium in London, it appears Joshua will now have to settle for a less headline-grabbing effort against either Dillian Whyte or Jarrell Miller.

Fury claims he is still world heavyweight No. 1 - the lineal champion - because he is unbeaten and gave up the three belts (WBA, IBF and WBO) he won from Wladimir Klitschko on points in November 2015.

Fury's bout with Wilder was only his third since a two-and-a-half year absence from the sport following mental health issues and a failed drug test.
