Tyson Fury Deontay Wilder - heavyweights ready for title clash

Watch Deontay Wilder Crash Tyson Fury’s Weigh-In, Clash With Fighter’s Dad

It will rank as one of the greatest heavyweight comebacks of all time if Tyson Fury dethrones Deontay Wilder to claim the World Boxing Council title in the USA this year, a heavyweight heist for the ages.

The 30-year-old needed only to defeat his little-known opponent to secure the ambitious fight, which will represent only the third since his comeback began in June, and was afterwards joined in the ring by the powerful American where both fighters and promoter Frank Warren confirmed they will meet.

The 30-year-old then backed himself to come up trumps in America once again - five years ago he knocked out Steve Cunningham in NY - quoting Frank Sinatra in the process. I said send me a contract, they sent me a contract.

Wilder will have seen little from Fury in his win over Pianeta to concern him before their proposed fight in Las Vegas in November.

The former lineal heavyweight king has been out of the ring for 31 months following his biggest career victory - an upset of Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 where he won the WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO belts and accolades such as The Ring Magazines Fighter Of The Year.

The great boxing just keeps on coming on BT Sport and now we have a monumental billing with Tyson Fury finally lined up to take on Deontay Wilder. Fury's lack of power at the highest level was similarly exposed when an eighth-round left hook was his best punch of the fight but still Pianeta was largely unmoved.

"He was the world heavyweight champion".

Wilder responded with a threat of his own, saying: "It is one thing that Tyson Fury has never had".

After Wilder was unable to land a heavyweight showdown with Anthony Joshua, Fury injected himself into the conversation and openly challenged The Bronze Bomber.

Fury, who has dropped nearly nine stone after ballooning up to 27 stone in his time away from the ring, intends to lose even more weight ahead of his meeting with Wilder.

Instead, Fury is enjoying boxing again and looked in better shape against Pianeta, showing plenty of movement as he worked behind an effective jab with lots of feinting and slipping.

"If I ain't good enough so be it, I'm taking this fight because I know I can win". I went 10 rounds and I was very happy with my performance.

"I'm sad to tell you Tyson Fury will not be bringing the WBC belt back here".
