Deontay Wilder must negotiate immediate rematch with Tyson Fury

WBC champion Deontay Wilder has been ordered to agree a deal with Tyson Fury for a heavyweight rematch.

The American retained his WBC belt after a split decision draw with Fury in December, and the WBC has informed both fighters they must finalise a second fight or a purse bid will be held on February 5, with a 60-40 split in Wilder’s favour.

Britain’s unified champion Anthony Joshua had hoped to face Wilder in an undisputed title clash at Wembley on April 13, but the WBC has officially enforced their champion to make his next title defence against Fury.
