Wilder hasn't fought since suffering his first professional defeat.
He immediately triggered the contracted rematch clause with the trilogy bout pencilled in for early December, according to promoter Bob Arum.
"We're moving off [December 19] because there's five conference championship games that day and night, plus two NFL games," he revealed.
"So, we can't go with the 19th. We're looking at other dates right now because ESPN advised us, and FOX advised PBC [Haymon's company]... We're looking at the schedule - PBC, FOX, ESPN and us - to pick a date."
Arum, though, did confirm the location with Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium set to host the highly-anticipated fight.
He added: "It's definitely Allegiant Stadium. The Raiders are on board, the city is on board, the [Las Vegas] Convention [& Visitors] Authority is on board. Everybody is on board."
