Sweden’s Wallin is currently ranked fourth by the WBA and 11th by the IBF. He stands at 6ft 5 and is undefeated.
Fury signed a $100m deal with ESPN earlier this year and this will be Fury’s second bout on his lucrative contract.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Tyson Fury said:
‘I’ve got an October date which has not been announced yet officially’
‘Then I’ve got the Wilder rematch, and that’s it really, just enjoying life day by day. ‘I’ve signed a contract, so it’s confirmed as far as I know. If I’ve signed a contract, I’ve signed a contract, and that’s it. One hundred per cent, he’s signed a contract and I’ve signed a contract.’
