Tyson Fury, and Deontay Wilder will have another opportunity to show their greatest pugilistic skills, after the WBC ''unanimous'' granting of a rematch. 

Fury, Briton was bitter about the decision last weekend after appearing to have beaten Wilder on points, but the judges felt otherwise. 

He acknowledged it's difficult to beat an American boxer at home, and is speaking about a rematch at Old Trafford, England. 

Though Fury was knocked down twice in the 9th, and 12th round by Wilder, boxing fans, former boxers and judges have said that was Fury's game. 

"Wilder and Fury gave boxing one of the best fights in the heavyweight division in a long time, which has created tremendous popular demand for the fans to see a rematch," it said.

"The WBC is happy to confirm a direct rematch has been approved."

The previous match was held at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles, while the rematch is seriously being touted to be held in Las Vegas.
