Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 2: How to watch, UK start time and who's on the undercard

Box-USA-wilder-fury

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are set for their huge heavyweight rematch in Las Vegas on February 22.

Wilder’s WBC heavyweight title will be on the line once again, as well as both of the fighters’ undefeated records.

Their first fight ended in a controversial draw after both thought they had done enough to be given the victory.

Wilder thought he had done enough to win by knocking his opponent to the canvas twice, while Fury was confident after outboxing Wilder in some of the rounds.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the rematch on Saturday.

When is Fury vs Wilder 2?

The rematch is set for February 22 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, 14 months after the pair first met in the ring.

It is one of the most highly-anticipated bouts of the year and could set up a massive unification fight against Britain’s Anthony Joshua.

Joshua currently holds the division’s WBA, IBF and WBO belts. He is also hoping to unify the titles by fighting either Wilder of Fury after their rematch.

Fury is the marginal favourite to beat Wilder. His complicated fighting style and huge reach could prove frustrating for the American, as it did during the first fight.

But Wilder’s knockout power means he is always dangerous and could punish Fury at any time for a short lapse in concentration.

Wilder has a knockout percentage of 98% and has completed 20 of his 41 knockouts in the first round, meaning Fury will have to be on top form.

What time will the fight start?

The fighters are set to do their ring walks at 5am UK time in the early hours of Sunday, February 23. That’s 9pm local time in Nevada.

The fight will be shown live on BT Sport Box Office in the UK, so you can watch it on your TV if you’ve got Sky, Virgin Media or TalkTalk.
