THE heavyweight rematch of the year is on.
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are set to go toe-to-toe once again as they battle it out in Las Vegas for the WBC heavyweight crown.
More than a year on from their spellbinding first encounter, both the Gypsy King and the Bronze Bomber will hope to take the belt and set up a possible unification showdown with Anthony Joshua.
It was a quite remarkable first meeting in December 2018 as two stars from both sides of the Atlantic went to war in Los Angeles.
Both fighters have kept busy whilst the rematch was negotiating, with Wilder seeing off Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz by KO to retain his WBC crown.
Whilst Fury continued to boost his profile with American audiences by beating both Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin in Sin City, whilst he picked up new supporters with a bizarre stint in the WWE.
When is Fury vs Wilder 2 Fight ?
AFTER months of wrangling, a date has finally been set for the long-awaited rematch.
Both camps have accused the other of stalling, but we now know for sure that the two fighters will do battle once again.
Fury vs Wilder 2 is all set for Saturday, February 22.
The Gypsy King has fought twice in Las Vegas before, famously donning an Apollo Creed inspired outfit as he strode out to face Schwarz last May.
His profile has been boosted on US soil as a result and he’s expected to have a huge supporter base at the MGM Grand.
With the fight taking place in America, it’s going to be a late night for UK audiences.
Expect Fury and Wilder to ring walk no earlier than 4am UK time on Sunday morning.
