Wilder Vs Fury
After easing a 10-round victory over Francesco Pianeta at Belfast’s Windsor Park during the weekends, Tyson Fury will fight WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas next in November.
Fury just needed to defeat Pianeta to get a shot at an ambitious fight against Wilder. Fortunately for the 30-year old fighter, this victory and his four-round win vs Sefer Seferi in June has almost baptised him again for his nearly-three-year hiatus.
In preparation for Wilder, Fury will further have to lose weight and regain his sharpness after unremarkably defeating Pianeta, rarely hurting him.
Despite this, Fury, opposite to Wilder just promised to knock him out on a post-fight interview has vowed:
“You can’t knock out what you can’t hit. This man (Pianeta) couldn’t land a blow on me.”
“This was the performance I needed to prove against a tough opponent that I can move and box again at the best level.”Fury defeated Pianeta on every round of their 10-round fight in Windsor Park. (Photo: Boxing News)
Warning Wilder on his performance
Continuing he said:
“It was a calculated boxing performance as promised. Working on my boxing, get the rounds in. I’m very happy with my performance. It was a step up in opponent; I needed to box and move and still show I can go 10 rounds.”
“We are two men that will fight everybody; they called, I answered, I said ‘Send me the contract’ and they sent it, I signed it. One thing I promise is that I’m knocking you the f*** out.”
During this heated verbal clash between the two who will soon brawl inside the ring, Wilder also said on Fury’s titles:
“It is one thing that Tyson Fury has never had. He had many belts, but he’s never had the WBC belt.”
“If he ever thinks about having this belt, he better wake up and apologise to me because he’ll never have this.”
Continuing he stated:
“I can’t wait to fight you because I am going to knock you out. I promise you. You’ve never been knocked out but you’re going to feel the experience, what it feels to get hit by the ‘Bronze Bomber’.”
“I’m happy to be here but I’m sorry to tell you that Fury will not be bringing the WBC belt back here. This fight we are having is on; it’s official, it’s on, baby.”

Now that the fight is absolutely on, the fans and BT Sport host can’t help but ask about the details. Promoter Frank Warren responded:
“All (a date and venue) will be revealed next week, but the fight is on.”
