Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko will meet in rematch after Brit's stunning win

Fallen champion Klitschko confirms he will exercise rematch clause in his contract

Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko will do it all again after the fallen champion confirmed his intention to exercise the rematch clause in their fight contract.
The details are still to be determined in terms of dates or location - but the Ukrainian is determined avenge his first defeat in 11 years.
Fury, too, insisted he would welcome a second fight - adding that he’d be willing to return to Germany to defend his heavyweight world titles.
Following the Wilmslow fighter’s shock unanimous points win on Saturday night, Klitschko’s camp were quick to confirm Fury’s obligation to put the belts back on the line.
“We have a rematch clause in the contract,” said the 39-year-old’s manager Bernd Bonte.
Klitschko added: “Where, how, when? Let’s wait and you will definitely get to know.”
Asked if he would take the rematch, he said: “I have it in my contract, yes.
“A defeat is a learning process. It’s too early to say what I have learned. It needs to be digested and whirled around.
“I got defeated today, I lost the battle, but we didn’t lose the fighter. The fighter is still in there.”
Fury, who silenced his doubters with the performance of his career in Dusseldorf’s Esprit Arena, is adamant he would prevail again.

“I’m a fighter, so I will take on all challengers,” said the undefeated 27-year-old. “I want to be a great champion. I’d like to do it all again.
“I came here and took the world titles so whatever happens next is a blessing.”

Fury’s trainer and uncle Peter believes the new champion could win in even more convincing fashion when they face each other for a second time.
“There’s a lot more Tyson can give and there’s a lot more Wladimir can give,” he said. “But I do believe the outcome would be similar or the same.

“Because I think it’s Tyson’s time. Tyson can raise his game a lot more.
“We’ve got to accept this was his first world title, big challenge. This was his first big, big test.
“Now he’s come through that test can you imagine how much more relaxed he’s going to be?
“You’re seeing a future heavyweight sensation.

“Now he’s on top of the hill you will see the confidence in his boxing and ability.
“We are looking forward to the rematch because I want Tyson to be a proper champion.
“We’ve proved we’ve come here to fight - in their own back yard - with all the concessions.
“If we’ve got to come here again, we will. We are looking forward to it.”
