"They wanted to get you because they assumed you was finished!"

While the fight played out exactly in favor of each fighter's strengths as Fury controlled by boxing with constant feints and awkward angles while Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) picked his spots to land heavy counter shots which threatened to end the fight.

"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.

If the mega fight does come to fruition it would see the victor - as long as there's no draw at this one - claim the WBC, WBA "super", IBF and WBO Heavyweight belts.

"I just showed the world tonight, and everyone suffering with mental health problems, you can come back, and it can be done".

Meanwhile, Fury limited Wilder to 71 connects (six per round) and Klitschko to 52 when he fought against him (four per round).

Joshua has a Wembley date booked in for April 13, 2019, but with no opponent named as yet. They said he wasn't going to sell any tickets. They said it wouldn't go ahead - well it did go ahead, didn't it?

"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."
I genuinely feel sorry for Tyson.

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.

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

The 30-year-old Fury said: "Everybody said Ben couldn't do it and he'd fold under pressure". "I've never seen a worse decision in my life". Did you, son? He didn't fold. Nobody in the world could have done a better job than Ben. Ever since me and Ben started working together, I've felt I made the right choice.
