A formality was handled easily as Fury (27-0, 20 KOs) pitched a shutout and earned a unanimous decision against Francesco Pianeta (35-5-1) Saturday in the co-main event of Carl Frampton vs. Luke Jackson at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Island.
Once Fury's victory was confirmed, Wilder took to the ring and the pair announced the bout together but stopped short of confirming a date or venue.
The American appeared after Fury tipped the scales at 18 stone, six pounds - over 18lbs lighter than he was at for his victory over Sefer Seferi in Manchester on June 9 - and entered into a shouting match with Fury's father, John, who had to be held back on the stage.
"If I didn't believe I could win this fight I'd pack up and retire today, I don't box to be second best or to make numbers up, I box to be the best I can be".
I'm happy with the performance. I said "send me a contract", they sent me a contract. "I went 10 rounds with a good, tough man who was quite durable".
"We are two men that will fight everybody; they called, I answered, I said "Send me the contract" and they sent it, I signed it".
A lot was on the line for Fury - he expects to make £10 million ($12.76 million) from facing Wilder, possibly in Las Vegas on November 10 or 17 - and he came through his audition without much discomfort. "One thing I promise when I get to Las Vegas is that I am knocking you the fuck out!"
The WBC heavyweight champion that has always been touted as Anthony Joshua's next plausible opponent, it is becoming ever more likely that Fury vs Wilder is a much more likely prospect.
Fury said: "Wilder congratulated me afterwards and said it was a great performance. It's no secret that I need the rounds". It was a step up in opponent; I needed to box and move and still show I can go 10 rounds. "You are going to feel the experience of being knocked out by the Bronze Bomber". The best fighting the best'.
