Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder Rematch Set For February 22

The much-awaited heavyweight title rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, the WBC world heavyweight champion, will take place in the American city of Las Vegas on February 22, 2020.

Both boxers confirmed the bout arrangements on their social media pages on Friday.

Briton Fury, 31, drew with undefeated American Wilder, 34, in December 2018.

Wilder, whose WBC belt will be on the line when they meet at the MGM Grand, tweeted “there will be no more unanswered questions” and “I will finish what I started”.

“After February 22nd there will be no more unanswered questions. I will finish what I started, and this time

@Tyson_Fury will not be getting up off that canvas so quickly. I’ve proven myself time and time again and I will do it again in February,” the WBC champion tweeted.
Fury told fans on Instagram to “watch me knock out Deontay Wilder”.

Fury survived two knockdowns by the American to earn a draw when they last met, in Los Angeles.

Whoever wins between the duo will be expected to face on Anthony Joshua, who holds the IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight titles in the hope of having a unified world heavyweight champion.
