The boxing rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury has been fixed for Las Vegas, the United States on February 22, 2020.
Wilder in a post on his Twitter page confirmed the new date for the rematch.
He wrote: “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.”
Naija News recalls that Wilder had retained his WBC title after a draw in a fight where he sent Fury to the canvas twice, but where he was also dominated by his opponent.
The two boxers were undefeated before this fight, 40 wins, including 39 before the limit, for Wilder, 27 for Fury, including 19 by KO.
Wilder could have favored a long-awaited and lucrative fight against fellow heavyweights Anthony Evans, British WBA, IBF and WBO champion of the Queen class, but he quickly indicated that a new fight against Fury was his priority.
