Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder Rematch 'Signed And Confirmed' For 22nd February

Tyson Fury has confirmed his highly anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder has been "signed" and will be held on 22nd February 2020.

The Brit superstar, 30, has been on tour in the UK since his stunning second-round TKO victory over Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas.

But the 'Gypsy King' took to the stage to reveal that a rematch with Wilder, 33, had been "confirmed and signed" and a date in February had been set.

Fury added: "This time, this time, this time... I haven't been out of the ring for three years.

"This time I haven't been abusing too much alcohol.

"This time I can knock him the f**k out."

According to World Boxing News, the bout is scheduled to take place in New York City or Las Vegas.

The two heavyweight powerhouses met in their first bout on 1st December at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

While the match ended in a controversial draw, many fight fans were convinced that Fury's performance against the 'Bronze Bomber' should have swung the result in his favour.

Fury is expected to have one more fight before the end of 2019, with Jarrell Miller tipped as the favourite to step into the ring with the heavyweight Brit.

World Boxing News reached out to the 30-year-old American's co-promoter, Dmitriy Salita, for a comment on the date for the bout.

"Nothing changed since our last conversation regarding Tyson Fury v Jarrell Miller," the ex-boxer told the publication.

"I don't have any additional news regarding this."

Fury is expected to face his next opponent on 5th October in the US.

Wilder, who produced a stunning first-round KO against Dominic Breazeale in May, is eying up a rematch with Luis Ortiz in September ahead of a rematch with Fury.
