Fury-Wilder rematch fixed for next February, says Fury

Fury-Wilder rematch fixed for next February, says Fury”

Briton Tyson Fury has said his rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will take place on February 22 next year.

Fury has vowed he will not let their next contest go to the scorecards, telling a Q&A at an event in Bradford: "This time I am going to knock him the f*** out".

Fury stopped Tom Schwarz in round two in June in his first fight since a draw with Wilder in December a year ago which the Englishman felt he won. Wilder, who beat Dominic Breazeale in NY in May, will next face Cuba's Luiz Ortiz in a rematch of their 2018 fight.

Fury's last bout came against Tom Schwarz in June when he defeated the German inside two rounds in Las Vegas. He also plans to fight again in the fall - possibly September or October in NY, according to his promoter.

The Athletic's Mike Coppinger says that date is among those in consideration for the rematch.

That loss heavily dented Joshua's reputation, a previously undefeated fighter who was expected to face either Wilder or Fury - the best fighters in the heavyweight division.
