Fury has the chance to really prove that he's the best early in the year when he takes on Wilder for the second time on February 22nd.
Wilder vs. Fury 2 is expected to be one of the biggest heavyweight championship fights in recent history and is one fans of boxing betting have been looking forward to for months.
The British heavyweight fought out a draw with WBC champion Wilder over a year ago and they will meet again at the MGM Grand.
Wilder (42-0-1, 41 knockouts) and Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) battled to a controversial split-decision draw in December 2018 in Los Angeles, the only blemish on either fighter's record.
Wilder, who has a reputation as one of the most unsafe knockout punchers, said: "I'm happy and excited that the rematch is finally happening". "He ain't going to touch me this time".
Ahead of perhaps the most pivotal fight of his career, Tyson Fury decided it was time for a change-or in this case, a return to the way things once were. You can't even come and see me and be face-to-face with me on camera because you'd be humiliated and took to school'.

In this quest, they have now set sights on a Manchester United starlet, who many believe is one of the best English talents in his age group.
"I can predict that with no uncertainty that Wilder-Fury 2 will be one of a number of fights Top Rank and PBC will be doing together, some on ESPN, some on FOX and others on PPV". They've been spectacular events - from my ring walks where I gather all the energy of the people, to my uniforms that I wear to help spread that energy.
"There's no more ducking and diving", Fury said as the fight was confirmed on Saturday (NZT). Then I give them what they all come for - the knockouts, and my knockouts have been wonderful. One judge had Wilder winning 115-111, one gave Fury the nod 114-112 and the third judge scored it 113-113. "'The date has been set, and the 'Bomb Squad" is about to be securely detonated and the real champion crowned as the world watches on for the most anticipated fight in years.
Both Fury and Wilder are undefeated, and each has a legitimate claim to calling himself the heavyweight champion of the world. Wilder retained his title with the knockout.
Wilder and Fury eventually agreed to the rematch, which also includes a trilogy fight.
