Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder: Gypsy King warned after fight CONFIRMED

WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder at Windsor Park

WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder at Windsor Park

Two fights into his much-anticipated comeback, Tyson Fury notched off another fairly routine win under the rain in Belfast's Windsor Park this evening.

Fury maintained an active pace (62 per round to Pianeta's 22.8- hvt. avg.: 45), and while his jab was nullified by the German-based Italian's southpaw stance (7 of 394, 2%), Fury's accurate power punching (44% to Pianeta's 20%) more than compensated.

Chaotic footage emerged on social media on Friday night which shows Deontay Wilder chasing Billy Joe Saunders through Nando's restaurant in Belfast, after it's reported that Saunders threw chicken at the American Heavyweight champion.

In what promises to be the biggest fight of 2018, Wilder will look to defend his WBC world heavyweight title against Fury in Las Vegas on an as yet unconfirmed date that could be as soon as November.

The 6-foot-9 Fury is a former IBF, WBA and WBO Champion who has never been defeated in 27 professional fights. "I said yes and now he gets his shot to fight the lineal heavyweight champion of the world".

With that victory safely under his belt, Deontay Wilder beckons.

If even the lower end of that estimate holds true, it would put it beyond Week 1 when the Ravens and Bills play each other. That's especially the case when talking about a potential quarterback switch for the Baltimore Ravens' Week 1 opponent.

"BT Sport and Frank Warren have created some fantastic Fight Nights on BT Sport and the launch of BT Sport Box Office across multiple platforms will give us the opportunity to make some huge bouts available to viewers across the United Kingdom". Fury (26-0, 19 KOs) was being measured ahead of Saturday's fight against Francesco Pianeta. I said send me the contract, I said yes.

It was a deal that was seemingly put together quickly after negotiations for Wilder to face Anthony Joshua fell apart.

Pianeta weighed in lighter than Fury at 18st (252 pounds) exactly.

Fury responded by saying: "Listen, you can't knock out what you can't hit". Your fans always prove me right, it's a great feeling to see so many people come and follow boxing. "I needed the rounds, and I had plenty left in the tank".

"I got 10 rounds with a very tough man under my belt". As the rounds progressed, Fury cranked up the pressure and began sitting down on his punches. I thought that was a step up with the opponent and display.
