After Deontay Wilder defeated Luis Ortiz in the seventh round of a Las Vegas showdown on Saturday, attention is turning to a high-stakes rematch with Tyson Fury.
Wilder and Fury fought to a draw in 2018 and appear set to contest a rematch in February 2020, according to Business Insider sources.
Since being the only man to not lose to Wilder, Fury has fought twice, beating Tom Schwarz in June and then Otto Wallin in September.
The Wallin fight was not without consequence, though, as Fury suffered a nasty cut and had to have 47 stitches to repair the wound.
He was reportedly told not to box for two months but a fighter he knows well, Carl Frampton, told Business Insider that February is plenty of time to be fit, focused, and ready to do it all again.
