Former unified world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (28-0-1) is claiming that one of the most anticipated rematches in the heavyweight history is all set and done. Of course, he’s talking about his second fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder (41-0-1).
The pair met last December in Los Angeles in what turned out to be one of the most controversial draws. “The Gypsy King” dominated the bout, but a lack of concentration in the last round got him floored by the American. Although the Brit got up and won the remainder of the 12th, the judges scored the fight a draw and that set up the stage for a second clash.
The 30-year-old Brit has stated he’ll be facing “The Bronze Bomber” in February 2020, but in order for this to happen, the 33-years-old Alabama native will have to defeat his next adversary – Cuba’s Luis Ortiz. Wilder said that he’ll be facing the Cuban vet this upcoming fall, but there is still nothing official on both sides.
