The eagerly anticipated rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury is expected to be finalised in the next 2 weeks, according to the WBC champ’s manager Shelly Finkel.

Unofficially, February 22nd was announced by the Gypsy King, with a location in the United States to be confirmed very soon.

“I’m the one fighting the best of the best in the division,” Wilder said after his KO win over Ortiz.” I don’t see any other fighters risking any fights. Last time I checked, Fury didn’t have more than two big fights on his résumé, and that’s a win against Klitschko and a draw against me. Look at me. I’m putting my title on the line each and every time. And I’m only getting better.”

Wilder’s manager Shelly Finkel added, “Every fight he’s either knocked you out or had you down. I’ve never seen anything like that.”

Shortly after Wilder knocked out Luis Ortiz, Tyson Fury took to social media…

“Wilder has nothing more than a punchers chance vs me, I’m gonna school even more than the first fight. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 #BUMCITY,” said Fury on Twitter.

Will Fury be able to avoid that right hand for the full 12 rounds? The knockdown’s in the first fight landed in the 9th and the 12th as Fury began to tire. Fury has 12 weeks from now if the 22nd date goes ahead. If Fury does come into the rematch in top shape, he may be the man to avoid the right-hand bomb and if it goes the distance, is there only one winner?

How do you see the rematch going? Have your say!
