DEONTAY WILDER has suggested he has signed an agreement on a rematch with Tyson Fury.

WBC world heavyweight champion Wilder has agreed a rematch with Luis Ortiz, expected to be scheduled in September.

But now the 33-year-old has insisted he has plans already drawn up to take on Wilder once more, after the pair’s draw in December 2018.

“All contracts have been signed already; it’s officially on,” Wilder posted on social media.


“As I always say I’m the realest champion in the business and as I’ve mentioned before I must handle all my controversial fights ASAP.

“By no means am I looking past Ortiz. He’s a dangerous fighter but I am looking through him.”

Wilder stopped Ortiz in the 10th round in March 2018, with the pair now gearing up for a rematch.

British star Fury faces Germany’s Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas on June 15.
