It is believe the eagerly-anticipated bout will take place at the Staples Centre in LA rather than the MGM Grand in fight capital Las Vegas.

Wilder, 32, posted a video on Instagram indicating the fight is a done deal.

He said: “The two best heavyweights competing against each other, the best fighting the best, giving the people what they want.”

Wilder initially agreed to the fight in August after Fury defeated Francesco Pianeta in his second bout back after a two-and-a-half year ring absence.

Talks between Anthony Joshua – who faces Alexander Povetkin at Wembley tonight – and Wilder broke down and Fury moved quickly to secure a deal.

The Bronze Bomber said: “I’ve just signed my portion of the contract of the Wilder vs Fury fight.

“It is officially on ladies and gentlemen, this fight is definitely on.

“I can’t wait. It is going to be an exciting fight, an explosive fight, one for the legacy. Definitely one for my legacy.

“You’ve got the WBC heavyweight champion of the world versus the lineal champion. It is going to be a pleasure.

“I just beat, in my opinion, one of the best heavyweights in Luis Ortiz and now I’m going for the next best in the heavyweight division.”

Fury, 30, revealed yesterday how he had also signed his part of the contract and was waiting only on the American.

The Gypsy King said: “S*** just got serious. I’ve just signed my end of the deal of the contract for the Wilder fight.

“Signed sealed and delivered, it’s just up to them [Team Wilder] now.”
