Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury II: Rematch set for February 22, according to British boxer
Tyson Fury maintained a highly-anticipated rematch against WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has been signed to take place on February 22 next year.
Many believed Fury deserved the nod in their first bout last December despite being knocked down twice but it was scored a draw, leading to Wilder retaining his title.
Wilder is slated to defend his belt in another return bout against Luis Ortiz but should he record another win against the Cuban, which paves the way for another showdown against Fury.
The Briton has pledged he will not let their next competition go to the scorecards, telling a Q&A with an event at Bradford’s Alhambra Theatre:”This time I will knock him the f*** out.
„The rematch has been signed and confirmed, 22 February. It is on, the rematch.
„This time I haven’t been outside the ring for 3 years, this time I haven’t been abusing an excessive amount of alcohol.”
