Tyson Fury's promoter Frank Warren has admitted that a rematch between the "Gypsy King" and Deontay Wilder is likely to take place in the USA in either April or May, talkSPORT report.

It is now looking more and more like Wilder and Fury will rematch and as time goes on, more and more things are not looking as rosy as they once did for Anthony Joshua.

Warren believes Fury's willingness to travel to a champion's back yard is in stark contrast to Joshua, who has never before fought outside of Britain in his 22-fight professional career.

Most fans believed that Fury was robbed of a storybook ending to his comeback journey when a controversial split draw was declared at the Staples Centre last month.

Beyond the financial reason, there are political reasons as to why a fight between Fury and Joshua would be hard to make.

Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren and bitter London rival promoter Eddie Hearn and indeed his father and fellow Hall of Famer like Warren, Barry Hearn - are all at one another's throats as the new year begins in boxing and the heavyweight landscape comes to life once again. In the United States, many of Warren's show are being carried by ESPN, while Hearn has an eight year content deal with streaming service DAZN.

'It is a childish offer, they know what I bring to the table, if he doesn't get Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury then I am the only one who sells Wembley out.' Unbeaten American Jarrell Miller is another potential opponent for AJ.

"They know that, they're not silly, it's a business as well so they're not going to take the fight, simple as". 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. But that fight ain't going to happen. "They might say they are going to take the fight and talk about it and fight somebody else - like they keep doing - but that fight ain't going to happen, so I'm not holding my breath at all", concluded a frustrated-looking Fury.
