Tyson Fury talks you through his epic 12th round against Deontay Wilder as Frank Warren says rematch will take place in spring

Former world champion Fury was knocked down twice in last weekend's controversial draw with WBC champ Wilder in Los Angeles.

And watching the fight back with BT Sport, 30-year-old Fury suggested he made a mistake in the final round.

He said: "I got a bit too greedy, tried knocking him out in 12th round. I should have just boxed on my toes round the ring.

"But I wanted to put on a show, I wanted to put the closing end on the American dream and I tried knocking him out – and I hit him with a fantastic right hand before he dropped me."

Fury analysed the reaction of both fighters when Wilder's combo saw the Briton hit the canvass.

He said: "Wilder's celebrating like it's over but the Gypsy King gets up. Look how strong the legs are.

"I said [to the referee] I'm fine, and I was. And then he come rushing forward again, and in this round I hit him with the best right hand-left hook anybody's ever thrown."

As the final bell rings, Fury watches himself throw his arms in the air in celebration and jump up on the side of the ring.

Watching, he says: "How did I get up from a knockdown there to be as crazy as that, legs are so strong, so fit.

"He knew he lost the fight. Look, he didn't do anything, I was running round because I knew I'd won the fight."

Because the judges didn't agree, a rematch is expected to be arranged.

And according to promoter Frank Warren that is likely to be confirmed in January and take place in the spring.

Warren told the Sunday Telegraph: "We will start talks next week. Tyson Fury has been in camp for virtually a year so we need to give him a break for Christmas.

"We are pushing hard to have the rematch in the UK. We will look to do the fight sometime in the late spring 2019 and are looking at a stadium if it happens in the UK.

"If we can’t get it here, it may well go to Las Vegas. But we believe Fury is now in the driving seat."
