Tyson Fury promises to knock out Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas fight

Boxing- Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson & Tyson Fury v Francesco Pianeta Weigh In- Europa Hotel Belfast Britain

"We are two men who will fight anybody", Fury said while face to face with Wilder.

The WBC champion entered the ring to confront Fury, waking up the Belfast crowd from their 30 minute slumber.

Fury excelled in rounds 6-10 as he out-landed Pianeta 71-21 overall en route to connect leads of 107-37 overall, 7-1 jabs and 100-36 power.

Following the weigh-in, Wilder and Fury clashed outside, with the two fighters separated by security. The former world champion, returning for the second time after 30 months away due to a drug ban, weighed in at 18st 6lbs yesterday, and promptly ignored his opponent, indulging instead in a verbal slanging match with the American Deontay Wilder, the World Boxing Council heavyweight champion, who will work as an analyst with the U.S. broadcasters Showtime from ringside.

However, Fury appeared to let the cat out the bag by revealing the bout would be in Vegas and the pair are expected to fight later this year in November or December.

Moments after the unanimous decision victory in Belfast, the WBC champion stormed the ring to confirm the tantalising encounter.

There is real pressure, yet Fury is showing no signs of being affected by it.

It still seems a fight too soon for Fury to be facing Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) after so much inactivity and after losing eight stones (112 pounds) for his comeback. I said "send me a contract".

But it is on and is owed in part to the breakdown in talks between Wilder and Fury's English rival Anthony Joshua, the WBA-IBF-WBO champion. And if he ever thinks about having this belt, he better wake up and apologise to me because he'll never have this.

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!"

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.

But not everyone in British boxing shares Fury's confidence. "I am going to knock you out". "It's no secret that we needed to get in the rounds". I thought that was a step-up and a better boxing display. "We came here to get the rounds in with a tough man, quite durable".

Fury's second fight in as many months lacked drama, and some fans jeered at the end - but the former champion was happy to shed some more ring rust.
