Tyson Fury: In Rematch, Either Me or Wilder Will Get Knocked Out!

By Aaron Stokes, courtesy of The Daily Star

Tyson Fury has publicly confirmed the date he will fight Deontay Wilder for the second time.

'The Gypsy King' shocked the boxing world back in December, picking himself off the canvas twice during a 12-round clash with Wilder in Las Vegas.

Fury out-boxed the American for the majority of the contest.

But to the dismay of almost everyone watching, the decision was called as a draw.

Wilder has since knocked out Dominic Breazeale in extremely quick fashion, while Fury has beaten German Tom Schwarz.

But the Brit has now confirmed the date of the eagerly-anticipated rematch between himself and Wilder as February 22 2020.

However, Fury admits that the fight will only happen should both men emerge from their next fights victorious.

Fury takes on little-known Swede Otto Wallin next month, while Wilder is expected to face Luis Ortiz for the second time in November.

"Yeah, the rematch is signed February 22nd [in] Las Vegas, Nevada," he said on ESPN show 'Now or Never'.

"I broke it on TV! "It's a done deal. If we both get through our next fights, then we're gonna fight February 22nd in the rematch."

Fury will be keen to beat Wilder properly this time - and the 31-year-old has a plan for the rematch.

"The mistake I made last time, which I won't make again, was believe that it will be a fair playing field because we know it isn't going to be, so I must knock him out," he told ESPN this week.

"I don't believe I can get a points victory over here because I clearly won that last fight. I outboxed him every round other than the two he knocked me down in.

"It's clearly not possible for me to get a points victory so I have to change my style, which I'm happy with because I've never been as strong, never punched as hard, I've never been as confident as I am today. I am going to knock him out this time.

"I'm not going to tip-tap around boxing because we know where that got us last time don't we so I believe it's going to be him or me [getting knocked out]."

Fury wants a war this time. He's gonna show us "Gypsy Style." What exactly is that? We'll find out in 2020.

I strongly think that there won't be any Wilder/Fury rematch before the unification. Fury is just promoting his next fight. Did we hear anything from Shelly Finkel? He always addresses the media whenever there is an update.
