Tyson Fury, the Lineal Heavyweight Champion, who fought to a controversial draw with Deontay Wilder last December, declared Sunday that the rematch is now “confirmed and signed.” Fury has also vowed not to let the rematch go to the judges, this time he is looking to knock him out.
“The Wilder rematch has been confirmed and signed,” Fury said in footage that has been shared on YouTube.
“Twenty second of February, it’s on. This time, I haven’t been out of the ring for three years.
“This time, I haven’t been abusing too much alcohol. And this time, I’m going to knock him the f**k out.”
Both Wilder and Fury have recently seen action inside the ring.
Wilder recorded his 40th knockout victory by stopping Dominic Breazeale in the first round back in May, and Fury returned to action, stopping Tom Schwarz in the second round in Las Vegas last month.
Back in early June, Wilder mentioned that “contracts have been signed” for a rematch with Fury, and with Fury’s revelation that the fight “is signed”, things are about to get really interesting in the Heavyweight division again.
Wilder fights again this September in a rematch with Cuban Heavyweight Luis “King Kong” Ortiz, and Fury is set to return to the ring in October, the rumor is he will be facing Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller.
We will keep you posted as further details on the rematch are revealed.
