Tyson Fury says he wants to finish what he started in his rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

The Brit is now mandatory for the American’s WBC heavyweight title, though their fight was already agreed to take place in 2020 regardless.

Fury said: “This is to address Deontay Wilder’s recent comments on how I don’t want to fight him and how afraid of him I am. If I was afraid of you I wouldn’t have fought you after having three years out of the ring and beaten you in your own country – you had to rob me and give me a draw.

“Just get through your fight with Ortiz, do your own thing, stop using my name for relevance. You should be on 20 per cent, but I’m not, I’m giving you a fair share because I’m a fair man. So the thing is with you Wilder – crack on with your own business and I will see you February 22 to finish what I started.”

Wilder takes on Luis Ortiz in another rematch on November 23 live on Sky Sports.
