Tyson Fury Cruises Past Francesco Pianeta As Wilder Showdown Looms Ahead

How to watch the Tyson Fury fight tonight live stream details and TV channel information

Fury is scheduled to fight Francesco Pianeta on Saturday in Northern Ireland, but Wilder caused quite a scene at Friday's weigh-in by showing up unannounced and clashing with Fury's father.

Fury was typically exuberant after his win and after showing Wilder some courtesy, he promised to knock the 32-year-old "the f**k out".

Ahead of a potential mega-bout, Tony Bellew has offered his thoughts on the fight and he's not liking Fury's chances at all, predicting a Wilder stoppage inside three rounds.

The 30-year-old then backed himself to come up trumps in America once again - five years ago he knocked out Steve Cunningham in NY - quoting Frank Sinatra in the process. "He's undefeated. They understand that", said the 66-year-old.

Tyson Fury has vowed to knock out Deontay Wilder when the two meet for the WBC heavyweight title in Las Vegas.

Belfast's boxing fans are famous for winning over visiting fighters.

"In an ideal world I could have done with another 10-round or 12-round fight, we know the world isn't ideal", Fury said. "I'd love to be a world champion again". Ortiz is more experienced and been fighting just as long as Fury, if not longer.

"We are two men that will fight everybody; they called, I answered, I said "Send me the contract" and they sent it, I signed it".

'I'll go to Vegas for free and fight Wilder.

"It was a calculated boxing performance", Fury added.

"I could've stood there and traded with him but I didn't need a one-round knockout". Tyson Fury is a vulnerable heavyweight, there's no two ways about that.

Wilder belted out his trademark "BOMBZQUAD" while Fury was weighing-in before exchanging words with John Fury who had to be restrained.

"I know what life is like on the other side, I also know now what it's about being in a good place".

He will have to lose further weight and continue to rediscover his sharpness following an unremarkable performance in which he rarely hurt his opponent, but standing opposite Wilder, he vowed: "I'm going to win this man's belt and bring it back to defend right here in Belfast. It's no secret I needed the rounds and I did that tonight".
