Deontay Wilder has finally broken his silence to tell Tyson Fury that he is ready for “war” after the Brit stripped him of his WBC heavyweight title.
Wilder, 34, suffered the first defeat of his career is Las Vegas last Saturday night as Fury delivered a boxing masterclass to win by TKO in the seventh round.
However, he is expected to trigger a rematch clause meaning a trilogy is likely to be on the cards following the initial draw in 2018
The third fight would likely take place this summer, with Top Rank chief Bob Arum confirming that it will be in the US.

And Wilder has dropped a huge hint via a video on social media that he is ready to step into the ring with Fury once again.
The American repeatedly insists that he will “rise again”, and describes the rivalry between himself and Fury as a “war”.
“Hello my people, my bum squad army, my bum squad nation,” Wilder said while staring into the camera.

“I am a warrior, I’m a king that would never give up, I’m a king that would fight to the death, and if anyone don’t understand that, don’t understand what it is to go to war, don’t understand what it is to fight, we will rise again.
