Many thought Fury deserved the nod in their first bout last December despite being knocked down twice but it was scored a draw, leading to Wilder retaining his title.
Wilder is slated to defend his belt in another return bout against Luis Ortiz but should he record another win against the Cuban, that paves the way for another showdown against Fury.
The Briton has vowed he will not let their next contest go to the scorecards, telling a Q&A at an event at Bradford’s Alhambra Theatre: “This time I am going to knock him the f*** out.
“The rematch has been confirmed and signed, February 22nd. It’s on, the rematch.
“This time I haven’t been out the ring for three years, this time I haven’t been abusing too much alcohol.”
