The fallout from Saturday's Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder bout keeps on coming as still more drama emerges.

Wilder has revealed a broken arm 12 weeks before camp in the run up to the fight and also claims that Fury didn’t make the count in the final round.

The decision of the referee to continue following Fury’s knockdown has also been widely questioned.

Fury’s manager Frank Warren is to complain to the WBC regarding the scorecards, adding yet more controversy to the now infamous night in LA.

Prevailing opinion believes that Tyson was robbed by the judges and that, despite hitting the canvas twice, should have been the clear leader on points.

Amir Khan has weighed in, reigniting old scores with potential challenger Anthony Joshua, by claiming that the Londoner is scared of fighting either Wilder or Fury.

Calls for the sacking of Mexican Judge Alejandro Rochin continue. It goes on. The dust won’t settle and the controversy surrounding the widely disputed draw keeps on raging.

What is clear is that Wilder wants a rematch with Fury rather than a bout with Joshua, and that this looks likely to happen next year.

And despite Warren first mooting a second clash in Vegas, Fury has been unequivocal on location, having already travelled to Germany against Wladimir Klitschko, and now to America against Wilder.

Speaking at Old Trafford and United’s match against Arsenal last night, the Gypsy King said: “I’m not gonna go on about it forever. You know. Life goes on.

"I got robbed blind in America, the world knows it, but … we’re gonna go on. Continue to the next fight.”

When asked about a rematch with Wilder, Fury replied: “Frank Warren, he said Arsenal, I said, no, let’s have it at Old Trafford. Hopefully we can have it here in the summer.”

Speaking on United, he continued with a boxing analogy: “They have been on the ropes, but you know, we need a win here to get us back off the ropes, land a good right hand, and er, we’ll be doing alright.”

Following the controversial decision last week, when asked if he’d be happy with a draw at the match, he was again unequivocal: “No I wouldn’t. I don’t like draws, I only like wins!”
