Tyson Fury Says Deontay Wilder Rematch Has Been Agreed For This New Date

Tyson Fury has confirmed his highly anticipated rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will take place on 22 February 2020.

“The rematch has been confirmed and signed for 22 February. It’s on, the rematch,” the British heavyweight champion told the audience at a Q&A event at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

He added:-

“This time I am going to knock him out. This time I haven’t been out the ring for three years, this time I haven’t been abusing too much alcohol.”

The first bout between Fury and Wilder in December 2018 was controversially scored as a draw, despite observers’ later saying they believe the British fighter deserved the win.

The 30-year-old has vowed not to let his rematch with Wilder go to the judges and is aiming to win Wilder’s belt outright.
