The WBC will process a request for a second fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder "accordingly and immediately" after Saturday’s fight ended in a controversial draw.
Fury contested that he had been denied "the greatest comeback in boxing history" after judges ruled the fight had been tied.
Frank warren, Fury’s promoter, has promised to issues a formal complaint against the scorecard.
A spokesman from the WBC told TalkSport : "At the WBC convention held in Kiev in October, it was ruled to facilitate instances that the best fights are staged, the heavyweight division included.
“Tyson Fury was outstanding last Saturday, one of the best performances that has been seen in a long time.
“If a request for a rematch is received, the WBC will process it accordingly and immediately.
“The ring officials, who worked the Wilder vs Fury bout are three people who are highly honourable and upright."
