Los Angeles, December 3: Promoter Frank Warren plans to lodge a complaint with the WBC after Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's controversial draw in Saturday's heavyweight clash.
Fury missed out on claiming the WBC belt in Los Angeles after a split decision draw was given at the Staples Center, yet he felt he had done enough despite twice being knocked down.
And promoter Warren is planning action in a bid to at least enforce a rematch, having been outraged by judge Alejandro Rochin's scoring, which contentiously had Wilder winning the first four rounds en route to a 115-111 success.
"I was very, very disappointed with certainly the Mexican judge's scoring," Warren told iFL TV. "How on Earth he gave the first four rounds to Wilder, I don't know. I don't know what fight he was watching.
"I've spoken to Charlie Giles, who's the president of the (British) Boxing Board of Control, and he's supporting us. We'll be formally writing to the WBC to ask for a rematch.
"I'm quite sure Mr Sulaiman (Mauricio Sulaiman, WBC president) - being the proud Mexican that he is - will want to make sure there is a rematch as his judge got it wrong."

It sounds like a lot of you agree.

Fury addressed the media again on Sunday (December 2) and he similarly had scathing criticism of Rochin, claiming he should not be allowed to judge again.
"I don't know what fight those judges were watching," Fury told a news conference. "I've never seen a worse decision in my life.
"It's boxing, it's not the first time it's happened but stuff like this gives boxing a bad name. You can't take anything away from me or Wilder and you can't let the decision take away from how good a fight it was.
"The world knows who the champion is; Wilder has been given a gift in his own country - he must be thanking his lucky stars because that belt belongs to me.
"(Rochin) needs to be banned from boxing because he can't judge."
