Tyson Fury is odds-on to dethrone WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder when the two men meet in their highly-anticipated rematch on February 22.

Despite only making his return to action earlier in the year following a lengthy absence from the sport, Fury put in the performance of a lifetime in December 2018 to go the distance with the big-punching champion at the Staples Center, and many expected the 30-year-old not get the nod from the judges after the largely dominant display. Not even a couple of knockdowns appeared to give Wilder much hope after he was thoroughly outclassed by the challenger, but two of the judges felt Fury had not done enough as one scored the fight and another bizarrely awarded it to the champion, resulting in a draw.

Those two judges were blasted in the wake of the bout as fans, pundits and fighters called for an immediate rematch between the pair, and they got their wish when the WBC released a statement confirming that it has sanctioned a “direct rematch”.

“The World Boxing Council conducted a voting through the board of governors, which resulted in a unanimous agreement to sanction a direct rematch between WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury,” read the statement. “Wilder and Fury gave boxing one of the best fights in the heavyweight division in a long time, which has created tremendous popular demand for the fans to see a rematch. The WBC is happy to confirm that a direct rematch has been approved and will create in a ruling which will also consider the mandatory status of the division. I wish to once again congratulate Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury for their great battle inside the ring and for the exemplary sportsmanship after the bout.”

Fury opted against an immediate return match with Wilder, instead signing up for a couple of warm-up fights in 2019, but the two men finally put pen-to-paper on a 2020 rematch late last year and the bookmakers believe the result will be very different to the first meeting.

The bookies believe Wilder will finally suffer his first defeat in a professional boxing ring, having made Fury the 8/11 favourite in the ‘Winner’ betting for the rematch.

There’s no more ducking and diving,” Fury said when the fight was confirmed. “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.”

Wilder, of course, disagrees and has previously insisted that fans did not see the ‘best Bronze Bomber’ in the original bout. He is an 11/10 underdog for the rematch, with a second draw between the two heavyweights available at 18/1.

I’m happy and I’m excited that the rematch is finally happening,” he told Top Rank. “I want to give the fans what they want to see. I’ve been doing it with my last three outings – Fury, Breazeale and Ortiz. They’ve been spectacular events – from my ring walks where I gather all the energy of the people, to my uniforms that I wear to help spread that energy. Then I give them what they all come for – the knockouts, and my knockouts have been amazing. I proved myself the first time and I’m ready to do it again. It was a very controversial [first] fight [with Fury]. I promise my fans that there won’t be any controversy with this one. I’m going to finish it.”
