Former heavyweight world titlist Deontay Wilder told ESPN on Monday that he will “definitely” exercise his right to an immediate third fight with Tyson Fury.
Fury, the lineal champion who took Wilder’s WBC belt, knocked Wilder down twice and stopped him when Wilder’s co-trainer, Mark Breland, threw in the towel as Fury was pounding Wilder in a corner during the seventh round of their mega rematch on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Wilder suffered his first defeat in an utterly one-sided fight. He said he knew as soon as he got into the ring that there was a problem with his legs, which he believes was the result of his miscalculating the weight of the costume he wore into the ring.
