The date of the monster clash is set to be announced in the coming weeks but according to Warren, everything is in place for Wilder vs. Fury to take place in either November or December.

Meanwhile, Fury showed off his trimmed stature as he weighed in at 258 pounds - 18 pounds lighter than his previous bout and the lightest he's fought since 2014.

The 30 year-old had announced his arrival at Windsor Park with an epic ring walk to the sound of Sweet Home Alabama - perhaps a reference to Wilder's hometown - and later described it as his best ever entrance.

Wilder's next defence of his WBC heavyweight title was confirmed on Saturday night, with Tyson Fury getting the next shot at "The Bronze Bomber". I said yes. Now he gets a chance to fight the lineal champion.

In what promises to be the biggest fight of 2018, Wilder will look to defend his WBC world heavyweight title against Fury in Las Vegas on an as yet unconfirmed date that could be as soon as November. Working on my boxing, get the rounds in.

These guys, you can't give them opportunities to hit you on the chin. This was a step up in opponent and a better display.

"When I said I wanted four warm-up fights back I was a sloth of 27 stones, fat as a pig, drinking every day", Fury said at an entertaining press conference, which included singing.

"This man (Pianeta) couldn't land a blow on me tonight".

"I can't wait to fight you because I am going to knock you out, I promise you".

"I wouldn't lose for £100million; you can't pay any amount of money for me to go to Vegas to get sparked out".

"I think it was a calculated boxing performance as promised", Fury said. I went 10 rounds and I was very happy with my performance.

Many have voiced concerns that Fury is not ready to face Wilder, including Matchroom Sport Promoter Eddie Hearn, who manages three-belt unified heavyweight titleholder Anthony Joshua, but Fury will have another opportunity on Saturday to answer his critics. "I'll fight you in your back yard".
