The duo of Wilder and Fury fought to a controversial draw last month in Los Angeles as the American retained his title with the judges denying Fury victory.
Mirror Sport reports that Tyson Fury will likely have to travel to America for his rematch with heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder .
Both men immediately agreed to a rematch and promoter Frank Warren has revealed the fight is set to take place before the summer.
“We’re trying to make that fight at the moment, everyone wants the fight and most importantly the fighters want it,” Mirror Sport quoted ESPN.
“The venue is looking like the U.S., that’s where the money is. Tyson was disappointed with the judging with the last fight, as I was, so a lot of things need to be sorted but the U.S. is where they want it, probably in the second quarter.
The source stated that “Vegas would be one of the options. I wouldn’t want to go back to California, I didn’t like working with the Californian commission and there were a lot of things we didn’t like there”.
“Tyson is already in the gym working hard, ticking over, and I think we would get it [the fight versus Wilder] before June.”
Warren had hoped to lure Wilder to England with the promise of a stadium fight at Wembley or the Emirates stadium.
But pay-per-view buys in America look to have dictated that Wilder will enjoy home advantage again.
