Fury sets up Wilder bout with victory

Boxing- Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson & Tyson Fury v Francesco Pianeta Weigh In- Europa Hotel Belfast Britain

Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury won the second fight of his comeback and cleared the path to a bout with WBC titleholder Deontay Wilder later this year.

He was rarely tested against the durable Pianeta and the combination of lapses in concentration with his lack of sharpness prevented Fury from excelling as he can, but he regardless was awarded the victor via a score of 100-90 on referee Steve Gray's scorecard.

Billy Joe Saunders reportedly threw a piece of chicken at Deontay Wilder at a Nandos in Belfast, Ireland, when the two boxers dined out with their respective entourages on Friday night. I said "yes" and now he gets a chance to fight the lineal champion of the world, " said Fury, who now has a 27-0 record.

Demonstrations of Fury's talent came as soon as the first round, when having been trapped in the corner and taken a combination he impressively manoeuvred out of it to finish their exchange on top. This is what we have been waiting for right here.

He replied: "We are ready now".

"It's officially on", declared the American.

"I got my rounds here, my 10 rounds, but one thing I promise when I go to Las Vegas is I'm knocking (Wilder) the f*** out".

Willian insists there is "no chance" he would still be at Chelsea if Antonio Conte had remained in charge. I think he's their main threat .

Promoter Frank Warren: All will be revealed next week, but the fight is on! I said send me a contract, they sent me a contract.

"I'm expecting (Tyson Fury) to look superb. You've never been knocked out but you're going to feel the experience, what it feels to get hit by the Bronze Bomber".

And boxing fans loved the banter between the two fighters.

"It's very hard to land clean on me nowadays". I thought that was a step up with the opponent and display.

Wilder's WBC heavyweight belt will be on the line in Vegas against the former unified champion who previously held the WBA, WBO and IBF world titles, with the eagerly anticipated bout expected to take place towards the end of the year - full details will be made public next week.

An understanding exists between the pair, partly as a outcome of Fury revealing it was Wilder who helped inspire him to get into shape and return to the ring.
