Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury 2 PPV Card Announced: Heavyweight Eliminator, WBO Title Bout Set

Three undercard fights are set to serve as part of the pay-per-view card headlined by the Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury rematch.

PBC and Top Rank announced a number of fights that will be a part of the February 22 main card taking place in Las Vegas, including a heavyweight title eliminator and a super bantamweight world title fight.

UFC 262 Betting Odds: Michael Chandler Slight Underdog vs. Charles Oliveira

The co-main event of the night will see former heavyweight titlist Charles Martin face Gerald Washington in what is being described as an IBF title eliminator. Martin once held the IBF title in 2016 when he defeated Vyacheslav Glazkov, but then lost the belt a couple of months later when he was knocked out by Anthony Joshua. Since then, Martin has won four of his last five bouts. Washington once challenged for Wilder's WBC heavyweight title in 2017, but after losing that fight, Washington has gone 2-2 in his next four fights, most recently beating Robert Helenius last July.

Joshua currently holds the IBF title, but is likely headed for a clash against Kubrat Pulev, the current mandatory challenger for the IBF, but that fight has yet to be officially made.

In the other world title fight announced so far, WBO super bantamweight champion Emanuel Navarrete will take on Jeo Santisima. Navarrete has developed a reputation as of late for being one of the sport's busiest world champions as this will be his fifth title defense since May 2019.

Navarrete last fought in December when he stopped Francisco Horta in the fourth round. Santisima, who will make his U.S. pro debut, is currently riding a 17-fight win streak and is currently ranked No. 4 by the WBO at 122 pounds.

The last fight announced is a battle between 154-pound prospects Sebastian Fundora and Daniel Lewis. Fundora has developed into one of the division's most interesting prospects, standing in at an 6'6" and is unbeaten in 14 pro fights. Fundora is coming off a split draw against Jamontay Clark this past August. Lewis, who boxed in the 2016 representing Australia, is 6-0 after making his pro debut back in 2019.

The card will be headlined by the rematch between Wilder and Tyson for the WBC heavyweight title. Fightful will have live coverage of the event.
