Frank Warren Claims Wilder-Fury Rematch Set To Be Announced On Monday

We can't wait for this one! Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder gave us one of the most enthralling clashes of 2018, and now they are set to do it all over again. The pair came toe-to-toe in a controversial in Los Angeles December of last year, with the fight finishing in a draw.

Despite being knocked down in the final round, many felt that Fury should have gotten the decision in that one. There was always going to be a rematch between the two, and now they will face off for the WBC title once more.

Speaking on talkSPORT this evening (h/t Daily Mail), Fury's promoter Frank Warren says that a major announcement about the rematch is imminent.

We will be making an announcement on Monday.

Monday we will be in a position I hope where we can be announcing what the future is for Tyson.

The second bout is rumoured to be taking place in Madison Square Garden on May 18th. The Daily Mail are reporting that representatives of both fighters have met at the WBC headquarters in Mexico City to discuss the terms of the fight, with both the financial terms and location of the bout up for decision.

Fury was apparently insistent that rematch be moved from Las Vegas, as he was understandably unhappy with the standard of judging in the original fight.

Whoever emerges victorious in Wilder-Fury part two will be earmarked for a unification bout with Anthony Joshua, who recently announced plans for his US debut. He will come up against American Jarrell Miller on June 1st in MSG, with his numerous world titles on the line.

If all goes to plan, we could see a super fight in the heavyweight division before the end of the year.
