TYSON FURY’S promoter Frank Warren says the Briton’s mooted rematch against Deontay Wilder is likely to take place in the United States in the first half of this year.

Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title following a controversial draw in Los Angeles in December, with many observers insisting Fury had done enough to get the nod from the judges despite being knocked down twice.

Fury’s compatriot Anthony Joshua, holder of the remaining three major world belts in boxing’s blue riband division, has been linked with a bout against either of the pair when he returns to action at Wembley on April 13.
