On Feb. 22, 2020, we might finally find out who the true king of the heavyweight division is, as Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will get back in the ring once again.

After the duo's anti-climactic first matchup, Fury confirmed on his Twitter account that the rematch will take place in February at the MGM Grand Garden arena.

The pair's first meeting ended in a stalemate. While Wilder knocked Fury down several times and was on the verge of knocking him, a case could have easily been made that Fury won that fight given how he frustrated Wilder for the majority of the bout.

Both fighters tuned up before this rematch, with the American Wilder and the British Fury each making title defenses by knocking out the likes of Luis Ortiz and Otto Wallin, respectively.

Wilder-Fury I may not have given us much clarity as to who the best heavyweight in the world is, but it was the most either of these fighters were ever tested in their professional boxing careers. The rematch looks to be even more violent and memorable than the original.
