It's On: Wilder/Fury Rematch Confirmed For February

After months of ceaseless speculation it has been confirmed that Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will return to the ring on February 22 for a much-anticipated rematch.

The pair engaged in a fight for the ages last December which ended in a controversial draw. Since then the fighters have gone in different directions, Fury fighting Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin, Deontay Wilder fighting Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz. Both men overcame their their recent opponents relatively comfortably, setting up the mouthwatering clash next spring.

The rematch will take place at the MGM Grand Arena, with tickets going on sale tomorrow. Both fighters announced the news through their social media accounts.

Fury shocked the world during the first fight between the two, recovering from what had seemed like a knockout blow in the final round. However, despite seeming to briefly lose consciousness Fury recovered and was unlucky not to have been awarded the decision.
