Wilder suggests Fury rematch is ‘officially on’
The pair’s December clash in Los Angeles finished in a draw.
Deontay Wilder has suggested he has signed an agreement on a rematch with Tyson Fury.
WBC world heavyweight champion Wilder has agreed a rematch with Luis Ortiz, expected to be scheduled in September.
But now the 33-year-old has insisted he has plans already drawn up to take on Wilder once more, after the pair’s draw in December 2018.
“All contracts have been signed already; it’s officially on,” Wilder posted on social media.

“As I always say I’m the realest champion in the business and as I’ve mentioned before I must handle all my controversial fights ASAP.
“By no means am I looking past Ortiz. He’s a dangerous fighter but I am looking through him.”
Wilder stopped Ortiz in the 10th round in March 2018, with the pair now gearing up for a rematch.
