Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will fight in a long-awaited rematch after the American match against Luis Ortiz.
The & # 39; Bronze Bomber & # 39; and Gypsy King & # 39; fought an exciting, controversial draw during their first meeting in December last year.
And now they will play toe-to-toe again, as revealed by Wilder with a promotional video on Twitter.
Deontay Wilder has released a video confirming that the rematch against Tyson Fury has started
The & # 39; Gypsy King & # 39; fought last year for a controversial draw against his American rival
Fury and Wilder are said to have been pulled by the Los Angeles judges in December last year
The one-minute clip was cut with & # 39; In The Air Tonight & # 39; from Phil Collins and contained the words: & # 39; Deontay Wilder, America & # 39; s heavyweight champion, 41-0, 40 knockouts, one draw. Wilder vs Fury II. & # 39;
A date for Wilder's clash with Ortiz will be announced in due course and Fury & # 39; s immediate focus is on the undefeated German Tom Schwarz for the June 15 meeting.
It seemed inevitable that Fury and Wilder would meet each other in a grudge at some point, but it will be a relief for boxing fans that the two were committed to a new fight in the near future.
Fury showed superior boxing skills, but was caught by a few clean shots
Fury rose twice from the canvas, including a heavy blow in the 12th round
In all likelihood, the resit will take place before the end of this year and Wilder is more open to a stadium fight in the UK.
The first attack took place in Los Angeles and most spectators believe Fury got a rough hand from the judges after taking his opponent out of boxing for most of the match.
But two knockdowns of the Alabama native waved the officials to a controversial split with the score cards 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury (who was incorrectly announced as 114-110), and 113-113.
The second of those knock-downs seemed to have sewn a late victory in the 12th round for Wilder, before Fury somehow moved away from the canvas, defeated the count and excelled to hear the final bell.
While there will be huge interest in a rematch between the couple. Critics who claim that Wilder broke a fight with Anthony Joshua will have received more oxygen through the announcement.
AJ is fighting Andy Ruiz at Madison Square Garden this Saturday, but it is undeniable that he wants to take on Wilder of Fury.
Wilder has the WBC title and can unite the heavyweight division if he beats the former Olympic champion.
