Tyson Fury sets up Deontay Wilder fight after winning second comeback bout

Tyson Fury sets up Deontay Wilder fight after winning second comeback bout

At the conclusion of Saturday's fight, Wilder climbed into the ring to tell the audience that the fight was "officially on". He regained his boxing license in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban the previous month for elevated levels of nandrolone in urine samples.

'Listen, they called - I answered.

"I'm not going into this for a pay cheque, I wouldn't lose for £100m, you can't pay any amount of money for me to go Vegas to get sparked out".

Fury won every round on the judges' scorecards in Belfast, though some sections of the crowd appeared frustrated at his measured performance, clearly feeling that he could have finished the fight if he had upped his intensity. Joshua v Fury would be massive for a United Kingdom and global audience, then Joshua-Wilder and then this.

While Francesco Pianeta was scarcely thought to be any match for the unbeaten heavyweight, much was being made pre-fight of the presence of Deontay Wilder at ringside.

"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". Working on my boxing, get the rounds in.

Criticism of Trump Over Brennan's Clearance Keeps Increasing
Trump says he is reviewing security clearances for nine other individuals, including the eight pictured. When asked about Ohr's security clearance, Trump said, "I suspect I'll be taking it away very quickly".

Pianeta will be Fury's second opponent since the former unified world heavyweight champion took a two-and-a-half-year break from the sport as he battled depression and was given a period of ineligibility by United Kingdom anti-doping.

Wilder fired back: "You can run around like you're a preacher but I promise you, when you do step in this ring I will baptise you!" I went 10 rounds and I was very happy with my performance.

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) responded to Fury's threat of a knockout with a promise of his own.

Fury weighed-in on Friday at 258 pounds, 18 pounds less than he came in for the Seferi fight, a sign that the brash Englishman is taking his career seriously once again.

His team had been negotiating to fight WBA, WBO and IBF champion Anthony Joshua but talks fell through.
