Most of us assume that Deontay Wilder will go right into a rematch with Tyson Fury as his next assignment.

Talk of that imminent face-off with Brit bossman Anthony Joshua has been cast aside to an extent, because that draw call means Wilder and Fury have to break the tie.

But Wilder was asked what he wants, on the latest Sirius/XM show hosted by Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney. Who’s next, Bronze Bomber, Fury or Joshua?

“I want to fight the best that is willing to fight the best. Tyson Fury is willing to fight the best as he is one of them. I would love the rematch again to end the score once and for all, to ease people’s minds of this worldwide controversial conversation. Who really won? I want to settle the score while the iron’s hot on it,” Wilder said, not even bothering to utter Joshua’s name.

“I don’t see why not. Let’s do it again and give the fans what they want to see. Why wouldn’t I want it again? I’m the one that put him on the canvas. He didn’t put me on the canvas. I’m ready for this fight, to show the world that I am who I am. We almost got it but almost don’t count. I’m ready to do it again.”

Friends, what say you? You want an immediate rematch? Or are you so desirous of Wilder vs AJ you will put off a Fury vs Wilder sequel?
