February 22nd Could Be The Best Day In 2020's Sports Calendar

February 22nd Could Be The Best Day In 2020's Sports Calendar

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will meet in the ring for the second time on February 22nd, on a day that promises to bring some exciting sporting clashes.

The first fight between Wilder and Fury last December was one of the best fights of the year, with the undefeated American twice knocking his British opponent to the floor but Fury putting together a better fight over the 12 rounds to earn a controversial draw.

It's been expected for a long time they would have their rematch and finally on Friday it was confirmed that they will square off again in just under two months time.

However the WBC and lineal heavyweight title fight won't be the only thing to get sports fans excited that day, with the Premier League offering up two excellent televised matches.

Early on the Saturday afternoon Chelsea play hosts to Spurs in what will be Jose Mourinho's first return to Stamford Bridge since taking over the Blues' rivals last month.

As well as a return for the 'Special One,' in what will be an intriguing reception for the 'Special One,' it is also a clash of two sides battling to finish in the top four, with currently just three points between them.

To add another level of interest, Frank Lampard was the winner over his former boss Mourinho when the two men met as managers for the first time in the reverse fixture earlier this season, with Lampard's side winning 2-0.

After the 3pm kick offs Leicester City host top two rivals Manchester City in the 5.30 kick off, with both sides still likely to be chasing top of the table Liverpool.

The games are the reverse fixtures from last weekend's games when the Foxes lost 3-1 to the Premier League champions, despite Jamie Vardy giving the visitors the lead.

Leicester could have done themselves and Manchester City a favour on Boxing Day when they faced the league leaders but they were dominated by Jurgen Klopp's side.

Brendan Rodgers will have done well to keep his side within distance of Pep Guardiola's side by mid January but it's still likely to be an exciting match.

After the football though it'll be the main event, late in the morning for UK viewers, as Wilder and Fury go to war again in Las Vegas.

February 22nd might be early in the year but it'll take some effort to get better in 2020.
