FRANK WARREN plans to begin negotiations for a lucrative rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder imminently.

In his role as Fury’s promoter, and alongside the British Boxing Board of Control, he has made a complaint to the WBC over the scores that meant their thrilling world heavyweight title fight, at Los Angeles’ Staples Centre, concluded as a draw.

His hope is that the sanctioning body order an immediate rematch, but speaking post-fight – having already spoken of his desire for a rematch – Wilder also reiterated his willingness to fight IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.
