Tyson Fury’s eagerly anticipated rematch against Deontay Wilder will take place on February 22 in Las Vegas, the Gypsy King has confirmed.
The British heavyweight announced his return to the top table of heavyweight boxing a year ago when he fought a controversial draw against the WBC world champion.
Fury subsequently record victories over Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin, but has made no secret of his desire to settle the score with his American counterpart, having felt he was robbed by the judges in their first fight.
‘It’s on! Feb. 22 at MGM Grand Garden Arena, watch me knock out Deontay Wilder AKA The Big Dosser,’ wrote Fury on Twitter.
Wilder, meanwhile, enhanced his reputation as a devastating knockout specialist last month when he beat veteran Luis Ortiz, stopping the Cuban in the seventh round.
‘After February 22nd there will be no more unanswered questions,’ the Bronze Bomber wrote on Twitter.
‘I will finish what I started, and this time. The Gypsy King 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.’
