Neither man has fought since they last met in February 2020, when Fury dethroned Wilder in emphatic fashion, as the American's corner threw in the towel after he was dropped twice earlier in the fight.
Fury, in turn, became the WBC champion, the only belt that had eluded him in his career to that point.
It was then set that Fury would face Anthony Joshua for the undisputed crown, however a judge's ruling that Wilder had the right to a rematch scuppered that - before Joshua then lost to Oleksandr Usyk anyway.
We now have Fury vs Wilder, a man looking to move on to bigger and potentially better glory against a man hoping to avenge his first career defeat.

Fury vs Wilder III fight purses: how much will they earn?
The Nevada State Athletic Commission always reveals the purses of its fights, and they have been revealed to be $6 million (£4.4 million) to Fury and $4 million (£2.9 million) to Wilder. After winning the second bout, Fury now commands a 60/40 share of the pot.
The two fighters, however, are also guaranteed a minimum £18 million... and that's before they get their cuts of the buys it does on pay-per-view. Last time out in America, the fight did a reported 850,000 buys, indicating a very healthy pay day for both men. It's predicted the fight will do a similar number this time around.
