But he has not fought at world level and a fighter of Fury's calibre would be a huge step up.
Top Rank declined to discuss the details of Fury's fight because it is slated to be announced on Saturday night during the Top Rank Boxing on ESPN card (10 p.m. ET) headlined by the heavyweight fight between Kubrat Pulev and Bogdan Dinu in Costa Mesa, California.
Fury said he was excited to be returning to America after overcoming two knockdowns in a controversial draw against WBC heavyweight champion Wilder in Los Angeles a year ago.
Fury was expected to face Wilder in an immediate rematch but instead signed a promotion deal with the American fighter's rival promoters Top Rank.
"It may well be that Wilder also has a network involved". In the end, the fight was scored a draw: 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113. I want three fights minimum, but the longer it goes into the year the more unlikely that becomes.
A rematch was immediately in the works after the contest, but with Wilder recently signing with Showtime Boxing, and Fury now with ESPN, there's no telling whether or not the awaited rematch will actually happen. It will make a really compelling fight.
That fight now isn't happening, with Wilder now defending his title against Dominic Breazeale, and now it seems Fury has his own next opponent.
Top Rank will now try to build Fury's name without the benefit of him facing a marquee opponent. After going all 12 rounds, the Englishman seemingly outboxed the WBC champion, however, Wilder scored the only two knockdowns of the fight.
"The Gypsy King" will face German prospect Tom Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs) on June 15. He has fought all of his fights in Germany except for two that were in the Czech Republic.
