Date Fixed For Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder Rematch

The much-anticipated rematch between British unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury and WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will take place in Las Vegas on 22 February, both fighters have confirmed.

The first bout between both unbeaten fighters ended in a draw in December 2018 with Fury surviving two knockdowns.

American Wilder, 34, 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”.

Briton Fury, 31, told fans on Instagram to “watch me knock out Deontay Wilder”.

The rematch had been agreed since June but Wilder said it would take place after his fight with Cuba’s Luis Ortiz, who he went on to defeat at the MGM Grand in November.

Meanwhile, Fury defeated Germany’s Tom Schwarz in June, but suffered a cut eye in beating Sweden’s Otto Wallin in September, which led to concerns a rematch with Wilder could be delayed.
