At one of his special question and answer evenings, the former unified heavyweight champion of the world announced the Wilder rematched had been "confirmed and signed".

And they will now go head-to-head once again early next year.

Despite an immediate rematch being a distinct possibility, Fury opted not to take that chance right away, and he instead signed a deal with Top Rank and ESPN to promote his next three bouts. 22nd of February, it's on the rematch.

Speaking at a Q&A event at Bradford's Alhambra Theatre Fury disclosed the details: February second in Las Vegas.

NZ coach hopes Tendulkar says 'happy birthday' to Black Caps
Having rested his hamstring for a week now, Ferguson, who's taken 63 wickets in 34 games, looks fresh to have a crack at India . This time it was in the Super Sixes and once again the Black Caps were moving on while India were given their marching orders.

The 30-year-old is the only boxer that Wilder has faced and not defeated after the pair battled to a draw in December in Los Angeles.

Past year he collided with American Deontay Wilder, also undefeated, in a high stakes fight that was seen by many as one that would establish the victor as the best heavyweight in the world.

"This time I am going to knock him the fuck out", Fury said.

Wilder is slated to defend his belt in another return bout against Luis Ortiz but should he record another win against the Cuban, that paves the way for another showdown against Fury.
