World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and contender Tyson Fury, will fight on December 1 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
“The two best heavyweights will compete with each other. The best against the best, giving people what they want,” Wilder said.
Fury, a former world champion, beat Francesco Pianeta by points in his second fight since returning to the ring after an absence of two and a half years.
“I know you have a powerful blow, I know you’re undefeated, I know you have a tremendous mouth and I know you want to win. But you do not want it as much as I do,” said Fury.
Wilder and Fury, both undefeated, staged a promotional tour in London, New York and Los Angeles.
The winner of that highly anticipated bout will march on to face Anthony Joshua, in a match for the unification of the heavyweight world titles.
