Frank Warren expects the deal for Tommy Fury to fight Jake Paul to be finalised in the next week.
The two look finally set to settle their differences in the ring in early 2023 after a bitter war of words and numerous false starts.
Fury broke a rib last December and pulled out of their fight, before visa issues in July scuppered the following attempt.
Paul sent an ultimatum to Warren on social media on Tuesday, demanding a signed contract in the next seven days or he will walk away once again.
The Queensbury Promotions chief joined talkSPORT and hinted that the deadline would be met.
“It will probably be in late February or March,” Warren said on Drive. “The reason why it didn’t go [before], the contracts were all signed, because of the problems he had with the US immigration.
“We are all past that now. Jake is up for coming over here and we have to get the deal finalised in the next week or so.”
Paul’s ultimatum came in response to a video of Tommy’s father and trainer John Fury speaking at the post-fight press conference following Sunday’s drama between the camps.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer was heckling the former Love Island star from ringside during his exhibition fight with Rolly Lambert on the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Deji undercard.
This led to a bare-chested John Fury attempting to launch himself in Paul’s direction as both sides exchanged insults.
Jake quoted tweeted a video of John saying a verbal agreement was in place and replied: “Dear @FrankWarren , I agree to fight Tommy in Manchester or London in February.
“I’ll come to his country, no more running. His baby is due then and you’ve said it’s no issue.
“Since John is adamant we’ve agreed, I am giving you seven days to present a signed contract by Tommy or I’m moving on.”
A fight between the two is an intriguing proposition with Paul 6-0 as a professional fighter, but is yet to face a boxer.
On the potential outcome, Warren added: “I’ve got to fancy the boxer, Tommy, to beat him. That’s why I’m keen on making it. It’s life-changing money for Tommy and it’s a no brainer for him to fight him.
“Jake Paul is obviously taking it very seriously now. He’s got a licence and he is training very hard.
“What level he is at you are only going to find out when he fights a Tommy Fury.”
