Tyson Fury has responded to Deontay Wilder’s knockout win over Luis Ortiz by claiming he will “school” the American in their rematch.
WBC champion Wilder had been losing every round on Saturday up until the knockout, however, he landed a crucial right hand which secured him 10 successful title defences and tied him with Muhammad Ali.
Wilder after the fight described himself as the "hardest hitter in boxing", which led to many fans debating whether that was actually true, or whether that title still belonged to Mike Tyson.
Fury and Wilder are due to fight in February 2020 after the pair fought a 12-round split decision draw in December 2018, meaning Wilder retained his WBC title.
This is the only fight in Wilder's career that he hasn't won outright.

After Fury's trainer Ben Davison witnessed the fight on Saturday, The Gypsy King has landed the first of many punches on Twitter by tweeting: "Wilder has nothing more than a punchers chance vs me, I’m gonna school even more than the first fight. #BUMCITY."
Many fans believed Fury should have won the fight last year, but Wilder insists he is doing enough to defeat Fury.
The Bronze Bomber said: “I found my measurement, seen the shot and took it, we have Tyson Fury the rematch next. It's set to be done in February so we will see how that goes."
Fans can now look forward to AJ's return in December, and begin the countdown to a mouth-watering rematch between Fury and Wilder next year.
