Frank Warren and the British Boxing Board of Control are to complain about the scorecards for Tyson Fury’s drawn WBC title fight with Deontay Wilder after the challenger was controversially denied victory.

“I’ve spoken to Charlie Giles, president of the British Boxing Board of Control, and they, along with us, will be writing to the WBC asking that they look at what’s gone on there and to order the rematch,” Warren said.

Is this necessary? Surely they are going to get the rematch anyway, no?

... Unless they don't want to take Wilder at his word...

Hearn was in Vegas beginning of the week to speak with Wilders people.

Frank wants it ordered.
Hearn has been talking to team Wilder forever and has balked every single time. I can't imagine what would be different this time around. I don't think Hearn really wants Wilder AND Fury; he'd much rather sit around and face the winner. The recent efforts to negotiate with Deontay are nothing more than a way to save face and get people talking sbout him again.

Still, I can understand why Fury wants his assurances.

Frank can't bank on that though, he needs to be proactive and get his man a guaranteed shot.

They've 'sanctioned' the rematch.

Hopefully that means what we want it to mean, but they've not specifically said they've ordered it.

I hope they aren't saying they've sanctioned it (ie won't block it) IF that's the direction Wilder wants to go.

Would be strange if Fury and Wilder didn't want it.

They both took the fight when there was less interest, less hype, less money for them and with arguably better deals out there for them.

I assume they've both come away knowing they can win a rematch too. Fury won the fight, but Wilder also knocked him out!

Never has a rematch made more sense.

Simply not true.

Wilder accepted an improved offer from Hearn after the 50m fiasco and then done a runner, 'balked' one would say. The fight was offered, a fee was agreed and it was ready to be made. it didn't get made because Wilder changed his mind and went for Fury.

He then upped his demands x2 and said 50-50 or nothing, proving that the earlier idea of him accepting 15m was a facade. He wasn't comfortable taking the short end of the negotiations and was time wasting the entire time. He saw his exit and took it.

I'm not saying that either wouldn't want it. I'm saying that I don't think it's been ordered.

Not in the same way that Froch Groves was, where Froch had to defend his belt or give it up.

If Hearn were to offer Wilder £100m I think he could still serve Fury if he so wished.

I don't think Fury would want a Grove-Froch situation.

If he gets installed as mandatory then Fury loses money.
