Ahead of the February 22 boxing rematch between both boxers, Deontay Wilder has sent a scary tweet to his opponent, Tyson Fury.

Wilder has clearly stated that he will ensure that Fury won't be able to walk off the canvas after dealing with him in the match up.



WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) wants to put Fury down hard enough to where he won’t be able to climb off the canvas on February 22.

Boxing news revealed that it irritates Wilder that Fury survived the full 12 rounds against him, because it enabled him to parade around and call himself the ‘uncrowned champ.’

The message is coming hours after officially confirming rematch date.

Undefeated defending WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder faced undefeated challenger and former WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring, and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in the first bout that took place on December 1, 2018.

The fight ended in a controversial split draw, with the scorecards at 115–111 for Wilder, 114–112 for Fury (which was incorrectly announced as 114–110), and 113–113.
