They have both had fights since their last clash but soon both will focus on their highly-anticipated rematch.

Fury vs Wilder II will be one of next year’s biggest bouts and here’s what we know about it so far.

Fury vs Wilder rematch: When is it?

Fury announced in July that his rematch against Wilder will take place on February 22, 2020.

The Gypsy King beat Sweden’s Otto Wallin on September 14 in a gruelling battle. The Bronze Bomber is set to defend his WBC title against Luis Ortiz in November.

The two are set to clash providing Wilder comes through his fight unscathed.

Fury said in a YouTube video: “The Wilder rematch has been confirmed and signed. 22nd of February, it’s on.

“This time, I haven’t been out of the ring for three years. This time, I haven’t been abusing too much alcohol. And this time, I’m going to knock him the f*** out.”

Wilder added: “All contracts have been signed already. It’s officially on.

“As I always say I’m the realest champion in the business and as I’ve mentioned before I must handle all my controversial fights ASAP.

“By no means am I looking past Ortiz. He’s a dangerous fighter but I am looking through him.”

But that will not be the end, as Fury has claimed that there will be a third battle between the two in June next year to complete a trilogy of bouts.
