Bob Arum of Top Rank Boxing has confirmed that Tyson Fury’s rematch with Deontay Wilder is now official for the 22nd of February.
It is very likely to take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The fight was made official on Tuesday. Unfortunately for boxing fans, this will be on pay-per-view rather than on regular ESPN and FOX. It’ll be a joint PPV event between those two networks.
“We’re going to have an announcement before Christmas, but the fight is happening Feb. 22. You can go to sleep on that,” Arum said to ESPN.com.

The MGM Grand is the same venue for Fury’s last 2 fights against Otto Wallin and Tom Schwarz. Wilder fought there last Saturday against Ortiz.
