Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has revealed to talkSPORT the Gypsy King’s anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder ‘IS DONE’.
There has been a huge appetite from boxing fans to see the two heavyweight giants go head-to-head again after controversially drawing their initial title fight in Los Angeles.
Following his victory over Wallin in Las Vegas, Fury said he was ‘ready for war’ with Wilder.
And Warren says the fight will happen in 2020, as soon as his fighter’s severely cut eye is fully healed.
“It’s done, the fight is made,” he exclusively told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Monday.
“The fight will go on next year. Obviously the date will now be subject to Tyson’s eye being healed and him being 100 per cent.
“If it’s not then I wouldn’t let it happen. There’s no way we’re going to let him go in the ring if he’s not 100 per cent, he’s got to be 100 per cent in a fight like that.
“Wilder is the biggest-punching heavyweight in the last 20 years, we all saw what happened last time and Tyson has got to be really on the money before we allow that fight to take place.
“But the fight is signed for, it’s done. Both fighters want it and everybody wants it to happen. It’s now just going to be a waiting game to see how the cut heals.
“Plus, Wilder will have a fight of his own against Luis Ortiz, and he’s got to come through his fight.
“I always say, these guys are potential banana skins. One punch can change everything, as we saw with AJ and with Tyson. One punch changed the fight for Tyson, only it wasn’t a knock out, it was a bad cut that was caused.”
Asked if the fight will be staged in the United States, Warren added: “Yeah, I would say 99.999 per cent it will be there.
“That’s because of the volume of the American audience, the fact it’ll be pay per view and that’s where the guys generate the most income.
“He’s only doing what every single Brit who has reached this level has done in the past.”
