Deontay Wilder breaks silence after Tyson Fury defeat to confirm trilogy fight

Deontay Wilder has confirmed he will exercise his right to a trilogy fight with Tyson Fury.

The American was dropped twice by his rival on Saturday night and stopped in the seventh round as he was dethroned as heavyweight world champion.

The loser of the fight had 30 days to activate a clause in the contract for a third fight – and Wilder will bid to win back his title.

His decision means a potential undisputed fight between Fury and Anthony Joshua will have to wait until later this year.

Joshua will instead take on mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev on June 20 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

There will be more to follow.
