I think it only just got finalized, but had been in negotiations for a month.

Johnson's eagerness to mix it up certainly has a lot to do with his confidence on the night. He did after all boss and stop the hard-charging but undersized Alex Leapai.

Fury hasn't got the same heavy hands as even the lighter-hitting Klitschko, but his size could be an intimidating factor.

Hell, Kingpin looked meek and timid against the smaller Tor Hamer. It could be he's unable to muster up any courage when stepping up in class at this point, in which case Fury could actually maul him into an inert shell and get that British style TKO.
