The long-awaited rematch of heavyweight titans has been announced.
Undefeated WBC champion Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) and unbeaten lineal champion Tyson "The Gypsy King" Fury, (29-0-1, 20 KOs), will step into the ring at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Feb. 22.
After February 22nd there will be no more unanswered questions. I will finish what I started, and this time @Tyson_Fury will not be getting up off that canvas so quickly. I’ve proven myself time and time again and I will do it again in February. #WilderFury2 pic.twitter.com/GkYSzNCBAU

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. PT Dec. 28 and can be purchased at www.mgmgrand.com or www.axs.com. The event is promoted by BombZquad Promotions, TGB Promotions, Top Rank and Frank Warren's Queensberry Promotions.
The first fight in December 2018 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles ended in a split draw. Since then, both men have won 2 consecutive fights.
Wilder vs. Fury II has been highly anticipated since their first meeting when Wilder retained his title via split draw after Fury miraculously rose from a 12th-round knockdown to finish the fight. It is one of the most memorable moments in heavyweight history and has raised the historical stakes heading into the rematch February 22.
