Wilder, meanwhile, will exercise the rematch clause for a summer fight against the 'Gypsy King'.
"This summer with no fights in between," 'The Bronze Bomber' said. "I'm a warrior and I'm ready to go again, but we're going to change a lot of things in camp."
It will be the third fight between Fury and Wilder following their 2018 clash which ended in a controversial draw.
