Fury sets up Wilder fight after winning second comeback bout

Fury sets up Wilder fight after winning second comeback bout

After the bout, the self-proclaimed "Gypsy King" made official one of the biggest fights the sport could make.

All it needs now is a time and a place.

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

WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder says there is "no question" he will fight Tyson Fury this year. This fight will happen.

"I can't wait to fight you because I am going to knock you out, I promise you".

The WBC heavyweight champion that has always been touted as Anthony Joshua's next plausible opponent, it is becoming ever more likely that Fury vs Wilder is a much more likely prospect.

Once Fury's victory was confirmed, Wilder took to the ring and the pair announced the bout together but stopped short of confirming a date or venue.

"Saunders looks terrified", they said.

Warren said "quick and smooth negotiations" between the two camps had led to a "50-50" purse split, adding that American Wilder's team recognised Fury's worth.

After shocking the boxing world by beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to become WBA, IBF and WBO champion, Fury was out of the ring for two and a half years because of mental health and drug problems.

For Fury though, the prize was too lucrative to take any chances.

Pianeta (35-4-1) weighed in at 16st, 2lbs and 10oz and asked Fury to pose for a selfie on stage following their face-off. It also won't take much to market the fight as Fury and Wilder are excellent self-promoters who cannot only talk a good game but have proven to be more than capable of backing it up.

His ringwalk was to the song Sweet Home Alabama.

"I know what life is like on the other side of having no hope and nothing", Fury said. Working on my boxing, get the rounds in. We were happy with the performance. "In an ideal world I could have done with another 10 or 12 round fight but it's not an ideal world and sometimes you just have to step up to the plate and rise to the occasion and that's what I do".

"One thing I promise when I go to Las Vegas, I'm knocking you out".

Fury responded by saying: "Listen, you can't knock out what you can't hit".
