Eddie Hearn said in an interview on Friday: “I spoke to Bob Arum.
“We’ve been having some deep conversations about that fight all week.
“And actually, me and Bob are ready to move forward and close that fight now.”
He added: “I don’t know if he’ll fight Wilder, I think Fury will go and do his WWE thing against Drew McIntyre later this year.
“We’ll deal with Kubrat Pulev, but we’ll sign the fight now. Me and Bob are working towards making that happen.”
