  • Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury Post-Fight Press Conference

Anthony Joshua labelled Deontay Wilder a "fool" and called out the American and Tyson Fury following the duo's contentious Los Angeles draw.

Joshua heralded a new era in the heavyweight division when he added the WBA title to that of the IBF after recovering from a heavy knockdown to stop the great Klitschko in the 11th round.

In the ninth, Wilder threw 46 punches, with 13 of them landing, while Fury only landed seven of 24. I can beat them all but they need to fight me.

Deontay Wilder is "very interested" in a blockbuster world title fight with Anthony Joshua, says the WBC champion's co-manager Shelly Finkel.

"Listen 100 per cent we'll do the rematch, but we're going to go away, recalculate, see what's going to happen, get back together".

With demand for a re-match feverishly high, bookmakers have already begun taking bets on who will prevail second time around, and this time favouritism lies with Fury.

Fury's promoter Frank Warren said his team would write to the WBC demanding another bout.

Alberta orders oil production cut to deal with price differential
Meanwhile, shares in oil producers that had been either benefiting or were insulated from the discount prices were little changed. Oil prices have been sagging, with US crude recently dipping to near $50 a barrel on renewed oversupply fears.

Many saw Fury as the clear victor, even with Wilder scoring two knockdowns in the later round of the fight, the judges would be split across the board, with one scoring it 113-113 even, 115-111 for Wilder, and 112-114 for Fury. "How on Earth he gave the first four rounds to Wilder, I don't know".

"But I didn't see any folding, Ben". Like we ain't been interested?!' Joshua posted on Twitter in response to Finkel's claims.

"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 he wants to be professional and keep it in a private discussion, I'm open to it".

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

Both Wilder (40-0-1) and Joshua (22-0) remain undefeated, the latter having beaten Alexander Povetkin in his last Wembley bout in September.
