Despite having to rise from the canvas twice, Fury bemused the champion with a stinging jab and well executed right hand.
As the Brit looked to have ripped the belt away from Wilder, the fight was declared a split decision draw, much to the disapproval of Fury and Warren.
However, talking on the BBC’s Costello and Bunce podcast, Warren confirmed the WBC will discuss the immediate rematch with their board of governors.
Warren said: “The WBC at the moment are putting it before their board of governors, I would assume and I will expect that they will order the rematch.
