A final decision over a potential rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will be made early next week, according to the World Boxing Council, World Boxing News report.

The pair have been locked in negotiations over a second fight ever since they left the Staples Center after their controversial split decision draw in December.

Fury almost capped a remarkable return to the ring with a victory over Wilder, however, the current WBC champion knocked the Brit down to the canvas in rounds nine and 12 to salvage a draw.
