In his previous out last December Fury faced the reigning WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. The pair went a 12-round distance, which ended in a split draw. The latter retained his strap, which he has defended for the ninth time in May scoring the first-round knockout win against Dominic Breazeale.
Fury and Wilder are expected to square off in a rematch in 2020.

“Then next year we are going to hold down Deontay Wilder and make him give me that green belt.”
