Tyson Fury maintained a highly-anticipated rematch against WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has been signed to happen on February 22 next year.
Many believed Fury deserved the nod in their initial bout last December despite being knocked down twice but it was scored a draw, resulting in Wilder keeping his name.
Wilder is slated to shield his belt in another return bout against Luis Ortiz but should he record another win against the Cuban, that paves the way for another showdown against Fury.
The Briton has pledged he won’t let their next contest visit the scorecards, telling a Q&A with an event at Bradford’s Alhambra Theatre:”This time I am going to knock him the f*** out.
“The rematch has been signed and confirmed, 22 February. It is on, the rematch.
“This time I have not been out the ring for 3 decades, this time that I haven’t been abusing an excessive amount of alcohol.”
