Victorious Fury to face Wilder

19 August 2018 03:28:55 EST

Tyson Fury will fight Deontay Wilder next after earning an impressive win over Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday.

The 30-year-old looks set to face the WBC world heavyweight champion in Las Vegas, although the venue for the bout has not yet been confirmed.

Fury won all 10 rounds against Pianeta, and said to Wilder afterwards: "One thing I promise when I go to Las Vegas is I am knocking you out."

Wilder responded by saying: "He has never had the WBC belt. If he even thinks about that belt, he had better wake up and apologise to me as he will never have this."

Pianeta has an incredibly impressive record having had 39 knockouts in his 40 bouts. However, Fury has now won his last 27 fights, including his brilliant triumph against Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf.

After Tyson's victory in Northern Ireland, Carl Frampton stopped Luke Jackson in the ninth round of their featherweight contest.

Frampton is now set to take on Josh Warrington as he attempts to win the IBF world title.

"This was unreal," Frampton said afterwards. "The atmosphere was special, the crowd was fantastic and they made my dream come true. It was unbelievable from start to finish.

"I know myself I still have it but I have to prove it with performances like that. Warrington is a different fight altogether, I know that. I want it and it's an easy fight to make. It makes sense."

Fury is 6/4 to beat Wilder while the American is 4/7 to win the bout.
