Tyson Fury’s rematch with WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is slated to take place in Las Vegas on 22 February, both fighters have confirmed.
Fury drew with undefeated American Wilder in December 2018.
Wilder, whose WBC belt will be on the line when they meet at the MGM Grand, tweeted “there will be no more unanswered questions” and “I will finish what I started”.
After February 22nd there will be no more unanswered questions. I will finish what I started, and this time @Tyson_Fury will not be getting up off that canvas so quickly. I’ve proven myself time and time again and I will do it again in February. #WilderFury2 pic.twitter.com/GkYSzNCBAU

Fury told fans on Instagram to “watch me knock out Deontay Wilder”.
Wilder said as long ago as June that an agreement had been signed for a rematch, but that it would take place after his fight with Cuba’s Luis Ortiz, who he went on to defeat at the MGM Grand in November.
Fury survived a knockdown by the American to earn a draw when they last met, in Los Angeles.
