Fury Looking To Put On A Show For Wilder

After a one-sided return fight earlier this year, Tyson Fury said that he’s looking to put on a show on August 17th in Belfast.

Fury is not looking to put on a show for just the fans, and those disappointed by his fight against Sefer Seferi, but for WBC world heavyweight champion and possible November opponent, Deontay Wilder.

When asked about how he felt about Wilder making the trip to commentate for BT Sport and watch Fury’s fight against Francesco Pianeta, Fury claimed it was “fantastic.”

“He’s only the WBC champion, which a lot of people have had in the past. But not many heavyweights have been the lineal champion.”

“Am I confident I can beat Wilder? One hundred per cent. I’ll beat them all. Ain’t nobody who can touch me, this is my era.”

Fury admits he cannot afford to take Pianeta lightly. “He beat Johann Duhaupas, who gave Wilder a good fight,” said Fury of the fighter who has gone 35-5 professionally.

“He’s been in some great fights himself and is a former European champion and two-time world title challenger.

“It’s his big shot at the gold, isn’t it?
