Wladimir Klitschko will attempt to regain his planet heavyweight titles by taking up his alternative for a rematch with new champion Tyson Fury next year.

Briton Fury, 27, beat the Ukrainian in Dusseldorf, Germany, on Saturday to take the WBA, IBF and WBO belts.

The contract for the fight included a clause for a rematch, for which the date and the venue have to be decided.

“Failure is not an alternative,” mentioned Klitschko, 39, on his prospects of winning back his titles.

“I was really frustrated straight after the fight, but following some brief nights, I now know that I am much greater than my efficiency on Saturday.

“I could not show a lot full prospective at any time. This is what I want to modify in the rematch, and I will.”

Klitschko has had two spells as planet champion, the first from 2000 to 2003. Getting regained the WBO belt in 2004, he went 11 years and 19 effective defences ahead of losing to Fury on Saturday.

Manchester fighter Fury stated on Sunday that he would beat Klitschko again if they have been reunited in the ring next year.

“If he had 10 years to train, the outcome would be the identical subsequent time,” Fury stated.

He added: “I want to be a wonderful champion. And I’d like to do it all once again. 1 point I can say about the rematch is that it is going to be explosive.”

Mick Hennessey, Fury’s promoter, is open to the prospect of a rematch in England.

“Wembley Stadium would be really appealing at the right time of year, certainly,” he said. “It was close to 55,000 in Düsseldorf. It would easily do 80,000 at Wembley. But it would have to be at the end of the football season.”
