Both fighters are set to go for another fight each this year before settling the score in February. Wilder has decided to face Luis Ortiz, while Fury is yet to pick his next opponent.
“The Wilder rematch has been confirmed and signed,” Fury said in footage shared on YouTube. “Twenty-second of February, it’s on. This time, I haven’t been out of the ring for three years.
“This time, I haven’t been abusing too much alcohol. And this time, I’m going to knock him the f**k out.”
Deontay Wilder takes a big risk facing the hard Cuban southpaw Luis Ortiz again. Ortiz had Wilder almost knocked out in the seventh round of their first bout but the Bronze Bomber survived and was able to knock him out in the 10th round.
Tyson Fury is hoping to make it back in the ring before the end of the year before the Wilder date but no information has been revealed about his intended opponent
