Wilder And Fury Go Face-To-Face As Fight Is Confirmed

Tyson Fury faces Francesco Pianeta at the weekend

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder crashed Tyson Fury's weigh-in Friday in Northern Ireland.

The 32-year-old is quoted by talkSPORT as saying: "I'm looking very forward to seeing Tyson fight, to see what he's going to do".

All it needs now is a time and a place.

Wilder vs. Fury, a 12-round matchup for Wilder's WBC Heavyweight World Championship, will be produced and distributed by SHOWTIME PPV. Now he gets his change to fight the Lineal Heavyweight Champion of the World. This fight will happen. "This is on, this fight is official".

'If I ain't good enough so be it; I'm taking this fight because I know I can win.

Those that make the 32-year-old the favourite to defend his title do so partly because of the belief that Fury is rushing into such a unsafe fight so soon into his comeback, while further observers believe Wilder will struggle with the Briton's awkward style.

You know, he's probably the greatest player to ever play the game, and to have the comeback that he's having-it's incredible". I think that's always great to have the support of fans and as many people as you can behind you, and I try to do that.

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.

“They called, I answered. I said send me the contract, I said yes.

"We are two men that will fight anybody", Fury said. "One thing I promise is that I'm knocking you out, boy".

Tyson Fury insists he is ready to face Deontay Wilder after only two fights on the comeback trail. 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. Wilder was born in Alabama. Fury, meanwhile, seemed to be content showing just enough to entice Wilder from ringside without going for the knockout or doing anything too spectacular, which robbed the fight of any excitement. Working on my boxing, get the rounds in. I'm happy with the performance. "I think his style is tailor-made for mine - awkward, wild swings - and I believe I'm a better boxer than him technically".

"I could have stood there and traded with him but I didn't need a one-round KO, I needed rounds".
