- Deontay Wilder has vowed to hand Tyson Fury his first heavyweight defeat
- Wilder and Fury will meet again for a showdown to hold inside MGM Grand Garden
- Bronze Bomber believes nothing can stop him from coming out victorious again
Deontay Wilder has vowed to defeat Tyson Fury, saying nothing can save him when they meet during their much anticipated rematch showdown that has been officially scheduled for February 22, 2020, in Las Vega.
Bronze Bomber will be defending his belt against the British in an epic showdown that will see the heavyweight kings put in power and seal of superiority again at the iconic MGM Grand Garden Arena in United States.
Wilder and Fury had their first fight in December 2018 and it resulted into a controversial split decision, with both sides emerging winners in grand style.
The American champ had landed a knockout-bound punch on Fury but the Brit summoned some courage to give Wilder some good punches inside the ring.
Wilder later went to defend his WBC title against Cuban fighter Luiz Ortiz in December- a bout he unsurprisingly won through knockout.
Ahead of their rematch, Wilder and Fury have been at verbal loggerhead with the Bronze Bomber boasting of his superior power.
"I told you before our first fight that I was going to baptize you," Wilder said.
"And I did. But not even God can save you on February 22. I promise you that.
Wilder had earlier vowed to 'finish what he started' while vowing to show his ruthless dominance in the division on Fury.
"I will finish what I started, and this time @Tyson_Fury will not be getting up off that canvas so quickly. I've proven myself time and time again and I will do it again in February, '' the 34-year-old pugilist said.
