The fight between WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will take place on Saturday, 1 December.

Contracts have been signed with the venue for the bout, expected to be in the United States, announced next week.

American Wilder, 32, and Briton Fury, 30, agreed a fight in August.

"The two best heavyweights competing against each other, the best fighting the best, giving the people what they want," Wilder said on social media.

The promotional tour for the fight will start on 1 October in London and will continue to New York and Los Angeles.

In August, former world champion Fury registered a unanimous points victory over Francesco Pianeta in his second fight since returning from a two-and-a-half-year spell out of the sport.
