Tyson Fury has confirmed that his long-awaited rematch with Deontay Wilder will take place on 22nd February.

The superstar Brit, 31, revealed in July that his second bout with the WBC champ, 33, had been 'signed and confirmed' for early 2020.

But Fury made an appearance on ESPN's Now or Never on Friday to reveal that the rematch would take place on 22nd February and will be held in Las Vegas.

The Brit was asked about Wilder's upcoming rematch with Luis Ortiz -- rumoured for November -- and was asked if he would reignite his rivalry for a second bout.

"Yeah, the rematch is signed February 22nd [in] Las Vegas, Nevada," he admitted.

"I broke it on TV!

"It's a done deal. If we both get through our next fights, then we're gonna fight February 22nd in the rematch."

When the 'Gypsy King' was asked what his "favourite thing" is about Wilder, he responded: "Favourite thing about Deontay Wilder... are his legs.

"They're so skinny and long [that] I feel like low kicking and snapping both legs with one kick."

Fury and Wilder traded blows in an epic clash last December for the WBC title at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

And while the match ended in a draw, many boxing fans felt that Fury should have won on points against the WBC kingpin.

Fury, who picked up a stunning second-round TKO victory over Tom Schwarz, had his next fight confirmed earlier this week.

The 'Gypsy King' will take on the unbeaten Swede Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 14th September.
