Tyson Fury says his highly-anticipated rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will take place on February 22nd 2020.

Fury, 30, stopped German Tom Schwarz in round two in June in his first fight since a draw with Wilder in December – which the Englishman felt he won.
Wilder is slated to defend his belt against Luis Ortiz but beating the Cuban would allow a rematch with Fury.

“The rematch has been confirmed and signed, 22 February,” said Fury.
Speaking at an event at Bradford’s Alhambra Theatre, Fury added: “It’s on, the rematch. This time I am going to knock him out.”
“This time I haven’t been out the ring for three years, this time I haven’t been abusing too much alcohol.”

Fury says any bout with Wilder would take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, USA.

But first Wilder must face his own return fight against Ortiz in September, while Fury expects his next contest to take place in New York on October 5th.
Fury has said he could face American Jarrell Miller, who lost the chance to take on Britain’s Anthony Joshua in June after failing three drugs tests.
