French pay-television broadcaster Canal Plus has acquired rights to the forthcoming boxing world title rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

Canal Plus also broadcast the first fight between the American and the Briton back in December 2018, and will televise the rematch live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on February 22.

The fight will also be replayed by Canal Plus Sport on February 23 at 8.45pm (CET).

The Nordic Entertainment (Nent) Group last week acquired exclusive rights to the fight in the Nordic region.

In their previous meeting, WBC champion Wilder and former WBA (Super), IBF, IBO and WBO belt-holder Fury fought out a controversial draw at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
