The much-awaited rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is all set to happen on February 22, 2020, at the MGN Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Deontay Wilder will be coming into the rematch with Tyson Fury with an undefeated record of 42-0-1 out of which 41 wins have been via knockouts. His lone draw came against Fury back in December 2018.
The English boxer holds a record of 29-0-1 in his professional career with 20 wins coming via knockout. Just like Wilder, the lone draw in Fury’s career came when these two last met.
Ahead of the rematch, Fury noted that Wilder is terrified and nervous. He also noted that he is going to knock out Wilder.
“Wilder is very nervous. I can see his jumper going in and out from the big heart beat pounding out of his chest. He’s terrified. He’s nervous as hell. He doesn’t know what to expect, and he’s getting knocked out,” Fury said.
Wilder had a similar opinion on Fury.
“He’s concerned and worried.I see that he’s nervous when I look into his eyes. Let’s face it, when you don’t know how you got dropped to the ground, or how you got up because you were so badly concussed, it’s a problem. It’s always in the back of your mind, like, this could happen again … and that’s why he switched trainers,” Wilder noted via boxingscene.com.
