Tyson Fury vs. Francesco Pianeta - CompuBox Punch Stats

Deontay Wilder made an unexpected appearance at Tyson Fury's weigh-in

The great boxing just keeps on coming on BT Sport and now we have a monumental billing with Tyson Fury finally lined up to take on Deontay Wilder.

Fury maintained an active pace (62 per round to Pianeta's 22.8- hvt. avg.: 45), and while his jab was nullified by the German-based Italian's southpaw stance (7 of 394, 2%), Fury's accurate power punching (44% to Pianeta's 20%) more than compensated.

For his part, Pianeta wouldn't go away easily and beckoned Fury to come forward despite landing nothing of significance.

Of course, both are now in Belfast ahead of Tyson Fury's fight against Francesco Pianeta, which will be the second fight of his formidable return to heavyweight boxing.

'We are two men who will fight anybody, ' said Fury.

Wilder vs. Fury, a 12-round matchup for Wilder's WBC Heavyweight World Championship, will be produced and distributed by SHOWTIME PPV.

Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel told BBC Sport the bout will be in "November or December in NY or Las Vegas".

Fury, 30, got into the ring to the sounds of "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd while Wilder, from Alabama, looked on from the front row.

"At the minute it's a bit of a freak show with Tyson Fury", Bellew told Sky Sports. Fury (26-0, 19 KOs) was being measured ahead of Saturday's fight against Francesco Pianeta.

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.

"I got the rounds in tonight but one thing I promise when I go to Las Vegas is I'm knocking you the f-- out boy", Fury said. I said: "Send me the contract.' They sent the contract". And if he ever thinks about having this belt, he better wake up and apologise to me because he'll never have this. "I am going to knock you out". I'm here, baby. I just left the Fury weigh-ins and oh my god, was it insane! I thought that was a step up in opponent and a great boxing display. "It's no secret I needed the rounds and I did that tonight".

"Fury against Wilder would be over in three rounds, at the most".
