Fury Aims Funny Dig At Wilder Referee During United Clash

Fury and Wilder have both said they want a rematch, and the British heavyweight made his first public appearance in the United Kingdom since his impressive outing in Los Angeles.

The judging and Reiss' officiating in the final round have been called into question in the aftermath.

Although it was Wilder who was behind the biggest moments of the fight - knockdowns in the eighth and twelfth rounds - Fury out-boxed him for the majority of the contest.

The former WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO Champion hasn't ruled out a rematch in the United Kingdom, saying that if it did happen, he would want it to take place in his hometown of Manchester and be held at Old Trafford.

"They both moved into the 12th round exhausted but not extremely hurt".

"Two things went through my mind - number one always count a champion out and number two give this guy the benefit of the doubt and let's see how he still is".

"Of course [I thought I won], but I'm not going to go on about it forever", he explained.

"He rolled over and got up and said "I'm okay!"

"He said, "yes" and put his arms on my shoulders". The world knows it, but we're going to go on, continue to the next fight.

"What referee can start the count instantly the second he hits the canvas?"

"It is the referee's opportunity to make sure the fighter who is hurt can intelligently defend himself because you're about let a guy come hurtling across the ring and finish this guy". Doctors taught us it is hard to hide things are off when they have to change direction.

As a result, Fury is hoping for a rematch on home turf instead of in Wilder's native America to avoid any potential controversy or bias. As The Ring's report explains, that figure doesn't include pay-per-view buys in the United Kingdom - of which there were certainly many - or digital purchases made on platforms such as Playstation 4.
