Fury and Wilder in heated Twitter exchange after cancellation of rematch

Tyson Fury's US TV deal has thrown up plenty of options including a possible fight with Kiwi Joseph Parker

The 30-year-old Fury, who is co-promoted by Frank Warren of Queensberry Promotions, ended a storybook comeback in December by getting up from a pair of knockdowns to settle for a disputed draw against Wilder in a classic fight most felt Fury had won.

Fury's deal with Top Rank will see his next two fights broadcast on ESPN as the fighter looks to crack the American boxing market since his fight with Wilder.

According to the the WBC head, Deontay Wilder had indicated his willingness to accept the bout but Fury has opted to take on another opponent for his next fight, before finalizing the rematch with the "Bronze Bomber" later this year.

The WBC heavyweight title rematch between champion Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury is off for now.

After announcing last week that he was "confident" that terms would be agreed promptly for a rematch, Sulaiman backtracked on social media on Tuesday saying that the Wilder-Fury II is "officially not happening next".

In a surprise move last week, Fury signed a deal with United States broadcast giant ESPN.

However, Fury is believed to have withdrawn from the fight in order to pursue an interim bout instead.

Wilder has now hit back at Fury in the wake of the news, replying to the tweet Fury sent last week insisting the rematch was still on.

"It's not about Wilder or Fury, it's just about that final belt". "ESPN and Top Rank are insisting that they want to give Tyson an exposure fight in the USA first, and then go to this fight [against Wilder] afterwards".

He said: 'You sorry muthaf****. "Hopefully, we will get the next fight after that". We knew you only said [you wanted the rematch] bec you knew you wasn't fighting me next.

"You requested a warm-up fight first", he said on Twitter. We wanted to fight Fury next.

"I don't blame you though, I probably would too if I saw my brains splashed all over the canvas".

"It's obvious that Fury doesn't want to fight us next", Finkel said.
