The date request is on the agenda for the commission meeting on March 27. Now Fury's next opponent seems to have been decided and it's unknown German Tom Schwarz.

The former three-belt champion climbed off the canvas to salvage a draw against WBC heavyweight king Deontay Wilder in December.

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.

Originally, fans had been concerned about Fury and Wilder being signed onto rival promotions - it could have meant a fight would never happen due to broadcasting issues, but Arum is confident otherwise.

Fury, who is still managed by Frank Warren, had several names on the list, but Schwarz stepped up for the challenge and is near a deal to bring him to his second fight outside of his native Germany.

"I'm very fit, very ready, I can't wait to fight", Fury said. Terms of that deal were not disclosed. "In my last fight I did that with Wilder, and now I'm going back and will be seen by a lot of people around the world".

Schwarz, 24, is ranked number two in the world with the WBO and has 24 wins from 24 bouts, 18 coming via stoppage.
