A PRESTIGIOUS accolade will be up for grabs when lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury faces WBC world champion Deontay Wilder, in an anticipated rematch.
The vacant Ring Magazine heavyweight belt, which is put up for bouts where the best are believed to be fighting the best, is set to be contested in the rematch per Michael Benson of TalkSport.
Wilder will of course offer up his WBC heavyweight world title which he has now succesfully defended the belt 10 times, tieing the record of the great Muhammad Ali.
With Wilder making it through a risky rematch with Luis Ortiz, scoring another brutal KO, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ is set to meet Fury again.
The fight is already signed and pencilled in, but not a definite, for February 22nd.
Their first meeting ended in a disputed draw with many believing Fury should have taken the win.
The rest of the heavyweight titles are up for grabs when Anthony Joshua rematches Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia, a clash on the dunes on December 7.
After knocking out Luis Ortiz this past weekend, Wilder promised to defeat Fury and move on to the winner of Joshua/Ruiz 2. That bout would see an undisputed world heavyweight champion crowned.
