The whole world is waiting for the anticipated rematch between Deontay Wilder (Bronze Bomber) and Tyson Fury (Gypsy King) next year, 2020.
The first encounter occurred on 1st December 2018, where the match ended in a split-decision draw. Wilder retained his WBC Heavyweight Title once again, but it will be up for grabs during the Wilder vs. Fury 2.
The Bronze Bomber was able to floor The Gipsy King twice in the 12-round fight, and Fury came up strong to bring more trouble to the tired-looking Wilder. That’s why we think that this is the most anticipated fight of the next year, 2020, besides the rematch where Antony Joshua reclaimed his world title from Andy Ruiz Jr. in December 2019.
Date of Wilder vs. Fury 2
Most champions in boxing history always have a clause that allows a rematch to enable them to regain their lost titles.
Wilder was able to defend his tight against Fury in December 2018. As a result of the decisive result, where the first match ended in a split-decision draw, triggered the rematch clause. That’s why we are yet to watch the rematch next year 2020.
After Wilder’s fight with Luis Ortiz, the Bronze Bomber confirmed that the rematch is expected to happen on Saturday, February 22, 2020, at around 11:30 pm. ET.
Location of Wilder vs. Fury 2
The first fight was held in the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and the bout didn’t sell out the 21,000-seater arena. And that explains why the rematch has been moved into another location.
The Wilder vs. Fury 2 is expected to be held at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada. It is an arena that is familiar to both fighters.
Wilder has fought twice in the MGM Grand. The recent fight where he retained his WBC title against Luis Ortiz and when he became the world champion in 2015 by beating Bermane Stiverne.
Fury also made his Vegas debut in the MGM Grand, where he fought Tom Schwartz in June 2019 and won by TKO.
