Wilder said he doesn't want to fight anybody else before a rematch. I'll give you a fair one when your (sic) ready! Everyone got so many opinions and I respect everyone's opinion'.

"I have spoken to Joshua since Saturday and his position is unchanged - he believes he will stop anyone put in front of him". He wrote, "I take nothing away from this fight, but we won this fight".

"Did the count start 3-4 seconds too late or was the count too long is the question many are asking and debating about", Wilder added.

"I didn't even think about Joshua". I predicted an early stoppage win for Deontay and I would still favor him in a rematch.

Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs), 30, of England, also has expressed interest in having a rematch, and the direct communication between Fury and Wilder is part of what helped the first fight get made.

"We're not going to rush anything to fit into a certain timetable", Espinoza said. "There's gonna be a lot to say still", Wilder said.
