Tyson Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) isn’t exactly known for his one-punch knockout power but ‘The Gypsy King’ has promised to KO heavyweight slugger Deontay Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) in their highly anticipated rematch next year.
Both men fought to a draw in a pulsating twelve-round contest back in 2018 and, on Friday, it was announced that the heavyweights would meet again on Feb. 22 to settle the score in Las Vegas.
Shortly after the bout was announced, Fury took to Twitter to guarantee a knockout victory for his fans.

Since their first fight in 2018, Fury has gone on to beat Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin, KO’ing the former and beating the latter on points. Wilder, on the other hand, has earned back-to-back knockout victories over Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz, maintaining his reputation as the most devastating puncher in the heavyweight division.
The rematch will take place on Feb. 22, 2020 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
