“It’s on! February 22 at MGM Grand Garden Arena, watch me knock out Deontay Wilder AKA The Big Dosser.” 


The 31-year-old British professional boxer also said;

There’s no more ducking and diving. The date has been set, and the ‘Bomb Squad’ is about to be securely detonated and the real champion crowned as the world watches on for the most anticipated fight in years.

“This is unfinished business for me, but come February 22, this dosser will finally get what’s coming to him, and I can’t wait!”

In response to the tweet, Deontay Wilder responded in his own way. He tweeted;

“After February 22 there will be no more unanswered questions.

“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”.
