Their first took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles in December 2018. The contest went a full distance and ended in a controversial split draw.

At the pre-fight press conference Tyson Fury (29-0-1, 20 KO) said “I’m gonna get what I won last time. I am gonna get that green belt (WBC), I am also gonna get The Ring Magazine, and I am also gonna keep my lineal championship.”

“And if he wants to rematch again, no problem. Beat the man once, you beat him again, you’ll definitely beat him three times in a row. Not a bother,” he concluded.

Deontay Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KO), who makes the eleventh defense of his WBC heavyweight title said that “everything he (Tyson Fury) wants to do – I’m going to defuse it.”

“I am looking forward to the rematch. We know that when I talk and say things – things actually happen. We know when he talks – it’s only just to talk, to entertain, to try to get a couple of jokes in and laughs and stuff like that. But, February 22 (Feb. 23 AEDT), when that bell ring, there ain’t no joke about that.”
