The pair are now in Las Vegas, where they are supporting Tommy's brother Tyson Fury as he takes part in a hotly anticipated boxing match.

Wilder now has 30 days to activate the rematch clause in his contract but will also need treatment on a suspected burst eardrum.

Tyson Fury entered the MGM Grand Garden Arena wearing a crown and sitting on a throne as he was carried to the ring.

"I'm not sure what Patsy Cline's intent was when she released insane in 1961, but Tyson Fury has channelled every bit of it in only the way he can".

Fury had bulked up to 273 pounds for the rematch, vowing to change tactics and become the big puncher.

There's no doubt that Wilder vs. Fury 2 is going to be an evenly-keeled slugfest.

Fury is 5/1 to get knocked down and win, while Wilder's odds stand at 9/1.

"Both of those things will happen. I promise you that".

If you're having a bet on the fight tonight don't miss the special offers available from the bookies, which I've listed here.

He said, "I'm just out to be Tommy Fury".

The first fight between Fury and Wilder in December 2018 was called a draw. But two 10-8 rounds for Wilder nullified the fact that Fury out boxed him.

This hotly-anticipated rematch is scheduled for Saturday, February 22.

Bob Bennett, the Nevada State Athletic Commission's executive director, barred Wilder and Fury from participating in a traditional face-off after they weighed in because they pushed and shoved one another at Wednesday's final pre-fight news conference. He wanted to fight. Wilder has a 95% knockout ratio for this fight and the best bet from Vegas is that it won't go the full 12 rounds. For this fight, he tipped the scales at a career-high 231-pounds, 11 ½ more pounds than his last bout and 19 ½ more than the first Fury fight. Fury was winning on points in that match, before Wilder knocked him to the canvas - but not out - in the 12th round. He had predicted a second-round knockout.

The hard jab continued for Fury in the second.

Throughout the fight, Fury would lean heavy on his right foot as a way of avoiding Wilder's right hand. He went down again moments later but referee Kenny Bayless rules it a slip.

"The king has returned to his throne", proclaimed Fury, whose previous reign as champion was cut short by drugs and alcohol.

Wilder appeared done in the sixth round.

Fury dropped Wilder twice before the American's corner threw in the towel, to bring an end to his unbeaten record and his reign as WBC champion.

"Even the greatest have lost and came back". Wilder has just one hope now, and it's the hail mary. "You just take it for what it is". "I make no excuses". I had a lot of complications.

It's the biggest boxing fight in years. Fury is heavily aligned in the United Kingdom with broadcaster BT and contracted with ESPN in America, while Joshua has broadcast deals in place with Sky in the United Kingdom and DAZN in America.

"Fury stuck to the gameplan. We told everyone what the gameplan was", Top Rank chairman Bob Arum, Fury's co-promtoer, said. "You can listen to all the interviews I did". I've been hit and hurt loads of times. He landed 82 of 267 punches (31%) and Wilder landed 34 of 141 (24%). I'm not an leisure man. "I had some issues before the fight, but we move on".

That is fine by Fury.

"He will be back", Fury said of Wilder. "He's a warrior, he will be back, he will be a champion again".
