The eyes of the boxing world will be on Las Vegas later this month when Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury square off once again in one of the most highly-anticipated rematches in the history of the sport, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office.
The first fight ended in a controversial split-decision draw, despite Fury outboxing WBC heavyweight champion Wilder.
Fury hit the canvas twice in the original bout but the Gypsy King has vowed to knock Wilder out this time and become a two-time heavyweight world champion.
Wilder vs Fury 2: When is it?
Wilder vs Fury 2 will take place on Saturday 22 February 2020.
The blockbuster rematch is set for Las Vegas’ MGM Grand, the scene of the Gypsy King’s brutal KO of Tom Schwarz in June.
The iconic venue has staged some of the biggest fights in history including Evander Holyfield v Mike Tyson 2, Oscar De La Hoya v Floyd Mayweather and Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao.
Since the epic first fight in December 2018, Fury has beaten Schwarz and Otto Wallin while Wilder has brutally knocked out Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz.
The world will stand still when the two unbeaten heavyweights clash for a second time in the biggest fight of the year, and this time Fury has vowed to knockout the Bronze Bomber.
“I’m not coming here for a points decision, I’ve had too many of them – nine of them – I’m coming here for a knockout, I’ve had 21 of them and from the heart that’s what I’m looking to do,” he said.
“The first fight I wanted to go in there and outbox him. It didn’t work. No matter what people say, I didn’t win. I count a draw as a loss.”
The American, who is unbeaten in 43 fights, said: “It’s called unfinished business and he won’t be able to get back up. I’m going to knock him out.”
“We both have to come in like we did the first fight, with our hearts on our sleeves and the warrior mentality that we always bring.”
