Official Trailer For Deontay Wilder Vs Tyson Fury II Will Leave You Hyped

Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury II has the potential to be one of the fights of the year and the official trailer has got us even more hyped for the heavyweight title fight.

The rematch between Wilder and Fury on February 22nd has a lot to live up to after the excitement of the first fight in December 2018.

If you weren't already buzzed for the fight in a months time then Top Rank have dropped the official trailer for the fight and it really should have you hyped.

The first fight in 2018 came as a bit of a surprise as Fury had only had two fights in his comeback, following nearly three years out battling depression and addiction after his win over Wladimir Klitschko, and the Gypsy King wasn't expected to trouble the WBC champion.

However the British heavyweight proved why he was, and still is, the lineal champion as he took the Bronze Bomber to only the second decision of his professional career.

Though Wilder twice knocked Fury down, including a 12th round knockdown that looked to be the end of the fight, many still expected the Englishman to win.

In the end both boxers had reason to feel hard done by as the judges had scored the fight a draw, leading to next month's rematch.

It was originally thought the second installment would be fought last year but Fury's deal with ESPN delayed things and he's since fought Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin to stay active.

Wilder knocked out Dominic Breazeale inside the first round before facing Luis Ortiz in November in another rematch.

The Cuban was ahead on the scorecards, and to many had won all of the opening six rounds, and was out boxing the champion seventh round when Wilder landed a knockout blow late in the round.

The winner in Las Vegas could face Anthony Joshua at some point, with the 2012 Olympic champion wanting to unify the division, but Fury warned AJ and Wilder that the 'undisputed champion' title means nothing, saying, "Undisputed heavyweight champion means f*** all, it means nothing. I am already the main man.

"When I beat Klitschko he was the main man, no ifs, buts or maybes, when I beat him I became the main man.

"I have done that and am the only active heavyweight around who can say he beat the main man in the division, the top guy, the rest have not."

If Fury beats Wilder and AJ there would certainly be no question.

Who will reign supreme on February 22nd?
