Speaking at the announcement of their bout, Fury said: “I fear no man. I am going to knock Strowman out.”
Strowman, real name, Adam Scherr, said: “Tyson heed my warning. In the WWE, we don’t wear gloves.”
He added: “You are climbing into my world. You are a household name and when these hands put you down for good, the whole world will remember who the monster among men Braun Strowman is.”
A former unified world heavyweight champion, Fury said he was “honoured” to compete in the WWE and described himself as “a lifelong fan” of the sports entertainment organisation.
Fury maintained his unbeaten record with a points win over Sweden’s Otto Wallin in September but during a dramatic bout, sustained a cut which required over 40 stitches.
He is expected to enter a rematch with WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder early in 2020.
In entering the WWE, he follows former boxers Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather, while US president Donald Trump has also engaged in a bout for the organisation in 2007.
