Brown was also the co-promoter of the first contest, which took place in December of 2018 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The first bout ended in a controversial twelve round split draw, with Fury getting dropped twice in the contest.
The rematch was originally scheduled to take place in early 2019. The negotiations broke apart after Fury went in another direction by signing with Top Rank. Fury would instead take two fights, that he won, with Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin. Wilder scored brutal knockouts over Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz.
"On February 22, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, it's going to be bombs away. We have two superstars here. The best two heavyweights in the world. Both fighters are going to show a lot of passion at this press conference and all the way leading up to this fight because there is so much at stake," Brown said.
"These are the best in boxing. There is nothing like a big heavyweight championship fight. We have the undefeated hardest punching, the most feared heavyweight in the world and I believe one of the all-time great heavyweights in Deontay Wilder.
"There is a reason Fury and his team didn't want the immediate rematch right after the first fight. He's taken a couple of tune-up fights instead because he felt that power on December 1. That's not going to change this time, he can just ask Luis Ortiz. I was lucky enough to promote the first fight and I believe we have something special in this rematch. I look forward to a fantastic fight on February 22 and we'll see everyone there."
