Tyson Fury has announced the date for his highly-anticipated rematch against WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder which has been signed to take place on February 22.
Fury survived a final-round knockdown when the pair met in December as he was forced to settle for a draw – despite seeming to have done enough to earn a points win – leading to Wilder retaining his title. Wilder is scheduled to defend his belt in another return bout with Luis Ortiz. If Deontay Wilder defeats Luis Oritz later in his fight later in the year, that would open the gate for his rematch with the Gypsy King Fury early next year by February 22, 2020.
The Gypsy King has vowed he will not let their next contest go to the scorecards, telling a Q&A at an event at Bradford’s Alhambra Theatre: “The rematch has been confirmed and signed, 22 February. It’s on, the rematch. “This time I haven’t been out the ring for three years, this time I haven’t been abusing too much alcohol.” Photo Credit: Getty
