Tyson Fury makes an unusual promise to Francesco Pianeta

Fury has his eyes firmly set on becoming the world heavyweight champion once again and could be set to announce a title fight with Deontay Wilder if he manages to overcome Pianeta. "You've got the two heavyweights in Wilder and Fury who want to get it on, and whoever wins will be the No. 1 heavyweight in the world".

"The People's Champion" Tyson Fury returned from two-and-a-half-year hiatus against Sefer Seferi (23-1) on June 9 in front of his home fans in Manchester and retired the cruiserweight in fourth round.

Earlier this month, Warren confirmed he was in advanced negotiations with Wilder's team over a possible heavyweight super-fight late in 2018 - a fight that would be just Fury's third since a two-and-a-half-year layoff from the sport.

"He's (Pianeta) a big strong fella and he knows that if he wins he will fight Wilder instead of me".

It really was just a routine win against an opponent that would not cause too much trouble to simply allow Tyson to dust off the cobwebs and get rid of the ring rust ahead of the more serious fights in his comeback campaign.

"I study my heavyweights and I know he's fought some good men".

They also pointed to links between some experts, the tobacco industry and firms that manufacture e-cigarettes. In the United States, at least 48 states and 2 territories have banned e-cigarette sales to minors.

"I take every fight the same, from a small-hall fight at York Hall or Fury-Wilder, I give my best to anything I put my name to", he asserts.

Tyson Fury is back in action on Saturday night as he continues his comeback to boxing after almost three years away from the ring.

"He's going to try and knock me out".

"I do want to win a world title again so I have to raise my game after three years out of the game almost and ballooning up to 28stones".

"He's southpaw which is a lot more awkward because there aren't many of them in the division, so it's hard to get sparring".

If I can beat Francesco Pianeta, I'll have beaten another boxer, big deal, but if he beats me, he is going on to something very big, life-changing for him, and if I can't beat Pianeta, I am going nowhere.
A southpaw and former European champion that has twice fought at world level is a completely credible opponent, at this stage of the comeback trail.

"What you're likely to see from me on Saturday is a heavyweight Sugar Ray Leonard".
