Fury's father restrained as Wilder crashes Pianeta weigh

GETTY    
   Fury faces Francesco Pianeta tonight before a potential bout with Deontay Wilder

The contest was confirmed by Wilder, Fury and promoter Frank Warren in the ring following the Gypsy King's victory over Francesco Pianeta in Belfast tonight.

Wilder had seemingly been set to take on Anthony Joshua before negotiations broke down and Fury stepped up.

"We are two men who will fight anybody", Fury said of Wilder.

As for Tyson Fury, his comeback was a simple one: "Listen, you can't knock out what you can't hit". It was, on closer inspection, more of an altercation over a comment apparently made by Saunders and which riled Wilder. I said send me the contract, they sent me the contract. "One thing I promise in Las Vegas is that I am knocking you out". He is vulnerable and he can be hurt, and when you are coming across guys with the speed and explosive power, like Deontay Wilder and Haye, it isn't good. Every man who has ever stepped in the ring with me, I've knocked them out in devastating fashion. "I will knock you out and this I promise".

Who will prevail when the current world heavyweight champion, Wilder, takes on the lineal heavyweight champion, Fury?

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder went at it after the official weigh-in.

After the fight in Belfast went the full ten rounds, the former world champion was unsurprisingly announced as the victor.

"I think it was a calculated boxing performance as promised", Fury said. "I needed the rounds, and I had plenty left in the tank". This was a step up in opponent and a better display. Styles make fights but when you're talking about Wilder, no-one knows what he is going to do - because he doesn't know either.

The showdown will be arguably the most buzzed about heavyweight fight on American soil since Lennox Lewis squared off with a depleted Mike Tyson in 2002. It would also shine up the victor for a future showdown against Joshua, should he get past mandatory opponent Alexander Povetkin on September 22, that would produce an undisputed champion.
