The two will then clash once again providing Wilder comes through his fight unscathed.
Fury said: “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.

Wilder vs Fury 2 Still On Course For February

While Wilder vs Fury 2 may not be the most significant heavyweight bout set to take place in the six months, with the Joshua Ruiz Jr rematch firmly in possession of that mantle; it’s most likely going to be the pick of the fights in 2020. February 22nd is the date for the pair to step into the ring with each other once again, but now there are doubts it will take place.
Wilder vs Fury 2
Deontay Wilder, who currently holds the WBC heavyweight belt, is said to be taking on Luis Ortiz in a rematch on November 23rd, but the fight is still to be confirmed. There’s speculation that Wilder, who has 40 knockouts from 42 bouts on his record, is set to hold out to see what transpires in the rematch between Joshua vs Ruiz 2 in Saudi Arabia on December 7th.
These rumours were quickly dismissed by Team Tyson Fury, who suggested Wilder and his people would be in breach of contract as they have a signed agreement to take on the Bronze Bomber in 2020. With Wilder already having been in the ring with Fury, he’s said to fancy his chances against Joshua or Ruiz Jr over the Gypsy King. This would surely be a huge draw for any all boxing fans. Bettingonline prepared an overview of Odds and predictions for the Joshua vs Fury, and people are stocked.
The first meeting between Wilder and Fury resulted in a controversial draw, with the majority of those who saw the fight feeing Fury had outboxed his rival from the outset. While Wilder had Fury down in the ninth and then again in the twelfth, his punching power failed to deliver the knockout he was looking for, prompting calls for a rematch, something both men were keen on happening.
Since the draw against Fury, Wilder went on to defend his WBC heavyweight belt against Dominic Breazeale, a fight which the Bronze Bomber won by knockout in the first round. Fury has fought and beaten Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin, with the latter providing cause for concern ahead of the scheduled rematch between the Gypsy King and Wilder.
In the third round of their fight, Wallin connected with a heavy left hook which tore open a considerable cut above Fury’s right eye. While Fury managed to battle on and secure the win by unanimous decision, he needed medical attention immediately after the fight. Fury was therefore handed a two-month medical suspension, casting doubt on whether he will be forced to pull out of his rematch with Wilder in February.
Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has however suggested that everything is going to plan as far as recovery is concerned, with the Gypsy King taking a much-needed break from boxing after fourteen gruelling months in the gym. Warren said that the situation wouldn’t be clear for another six or seven weeks, however, because only then will it be known whether Fury’s injury has fully healed.
If the two cuts sustained against Wallin are still an issue around Christmas, it will prevent Fury from being able to spar freely. So, the fight could be pushed back or pulled, but as things stand, everything is on course for the February showpiece.

Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz 2 Fight : undercard, rumors, date, location, PPV

A look at the fight card for Deontay Wilder's rematch with Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas . Before the highly anticipated big-money rematch with Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder has another former foe standing in his way. Wilder rematches Luis Ortiz in a heavyweight showdown on Nov. 23 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz 2

Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) and Ortiz (31-1, 26 KOs) first met in March 2018 in a competitive fight that saw Ortiz trouble Wilder several times before Wilder scored a knockout in Round 10 to remain undefeated. That fight set up Wilder's first fight with Fury, a controversial split draw. The rematch has been an obvious move for Fury and Wilder, but the journey there isn't easy. Fury was almost defeated by Otto Wallin when he suffered multiple deep cuts around his right eye. And Ortiz is no easy opponent for Wilder, and has the kind of power that could easily derail one of the most anticipated heavyweight bouts of the modern era.

Ortiz rebounded from his first career loss by picking up knockout wins over Razvan Cojanu and Travis Kauffman before decisioning Christian Hammer to set up a second shot at Wilder. The 40-year-old Cuban may not have many more shots at picking up a world championship.

In the co-main event, Brandon Figueroa (20-0, 15 KOs) puts his WBA super bantamweight title on the line for the first time when he faces Julio Ceja (32-4, 28 KOs). Figueroa won the interim version of the belt two fights ago before being promoted to the division's regular champion ahead of the showdown with Ceja. Ceja is a former champ on a two-fight losing skid, most recently dropping a decision against Guillermo Rigondeaux in June.

Also on the card, Leo Santa Cruz (36-1-1, 19 KOs) looks to capture world championship gold in a fourth weight class when he faces off with Miguel Flores (24-2, 12 KOs) for the vacant WBA super featherweight title. Since avenging his only career loss with a majority decision win over Carl Frampton, Santa Cruz has defeated Chris Avalos, Abner Mares and Rafael Rivera. He'll jump up in weight to face Flores, who will be challenging for a title for the first time in his career. Flores rebounded from back-to-back losses with wins over Raul Chirino and Luis May to position himself for the opportunity.
