Wilder twice knocked down Fury during the fight, but many observers felt the Briton should have won.

And Fury, 30, said he thought the 33-year-old American would try to avoid a rematch with him “at all costs”.

Wilder claimed he won the fight and was the “more aggressive fighter and landed the more effective punches”.

In a post on Instagram, he said: “You saw the best Fury but you did not get the best Wilder and I still managed to get the job done.”

He added: “At the end of the day, boxing wins. The fans are the real winner and I can’t wait for Wilder Fury 2 to end the controversial talk around the world once and for all.”

Wilder’s trainer Jay Deas said earlier he wanted his fighter to take on Fury again before a potential bout with IBF, WBO and WBA champion Anthony Joshua.

Saturday’s fight was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113, with Alejandro Rochin the judge who had the American as the winner.

Fury said he had “never seen a worse decision in my life” and described it as a “gift” for his opponent.

His promoter Frank Warren said he and the British Boxing Board of Control would write to the WBC demanding another bout.

Fury was also backed by a number of former world champions, including Floyd Mayweather, Lennox Lewis, Tony Bellew and Carl Froch.
