WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder cleared all possible issues ahead of his rematch with Lineal Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury by finishing off Luis Ortiz In the seventh round of their Rematch on Saturday Nov. 23 at the MGM Grand Arena. 

Fury and Wilder was scored by the judges and deemed a draw after Fury, who was far ahead on all the scorecards got knocked down twice in the ninth round and in the twelvth round respectively. 

However, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe believes that from what he saw on Saturday, the Rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, which is slated for February 22nd in Las Vegas will end early in favor of the Wilder. 

“I think that Tyson Fury, he is a big personality and he talks a lot but I think he knows what the outcome is going to be if he steps in the ring with Wilder again. I think he senses it because of the second half, the way the fight went. Plus Wilder has gotten better since they fought,” Ellerbe told

Deontay Wilder has since the draw with Fury destroyed Dominic Breazeale in the first round and has added a seventh round KO of Luis Ortiz to his resume, while Fury has so far stopped Tom Schwarz in four rounds and had serious cuts in his stoppage win over Otto Wallin.

From facts Breazeale and Luis Ortiz are both better than Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin and that leaves Ellerbe with the believe that Wilder has had improvements after the fight and will find it easier to defeat Fury when they meet in a rematch. 

“He did stagnate. He is a tremendous boxer, especially for a heavyweight. He has mad skills but Deontay has added things to his arsenal which in my opinion I think Deontay Wilder will knock him out within 5 rounds,” Ellerbe explained while also stating that he believes Wilder will be much more confident in the sequel. 

“Wilder has been in there with him now and he knows that he wasn’t patient and he rushed in looking for the knockout out early in the first fight and I think the knockout will just come this time because of some of the things he and (trainer) Jay (Deas) have been working on to offset some of what Fury brings to the table.”
