It looks like fight fans will get to see Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury II next year.
Back in Dec. 2018, Wilder defended the WBC heavyweight title against Fury. The bout was highly anticipated with both men sporting undefeated records. The bout brought high drama with Fury almost being knocked out in the final round. In the end, the judges ruled the title match a split draw. Many have been wondering when the two will meet again and now we have an answer.
