Tyson Fury motivated by Deontay Wilder bout

Tyson Fury motivated by Deontay Wilder bout

Tyson Fury says he has signed the contract.

But things took a freakish turn after the official weigh-in on Friday, as Saunders seemingly charged into a restaurant where Wilder and his entourage were eating.

All it needs now is a time and a place.

A now-viral video caught fighter Deontay Wilder chasing Billy Joe Saunders after Saunders reportedly hurled a chicken at the U.S. heavyweight boxer.

He defeated Sefer Seferi on his return to the ring, and is now slated to fight Italian Francesco Pianeta on Saturday night.

'We ready now, this fight we are having is on. This fight will happen. The best fighting the best'. He had many belts, but he's never had the WBC belt.

"When I read them, I thought you can't be saying that". Your fans always prove me right, it's a great feeling to see so many people come and follow boxing.

The WBC heavyweight champion has flown to Belfast from the United States to be ringside to watch the action at Windsor Park.

His boxing license was suspended in October 2016, but was reinstated in January of this year.

The first fight of his return was an nearly comical bout against Albanian cruiserweight Sefer Seferi in June, which ended after the fourth round when Fury's opponent quit.

Pianeta weighed in lighter than Fury at 18st exactly. Fury's father, John Fury, who was on the stage, had to be held back as the pair shouted at each other.

His ringwalk was to the song Sweet Home Alabama.

"He is a racist cunt I think, I personally think he is", Saunders told IFL TV. I am expecting him to do his business, I don't want him to play around. "It's no secret that I need the rounds".

After the fight in Belfast went the full ten rounds, the former world champion was unsurprisingly announced as the victor. It was a deal that was seemingly put together quickly after negotiations for Wilder to face Anthony Joshua fell apart.

Fury goes into Saturday's bout at Windsor Park with a record of 26 wins from 26 fights, while Wilder is unbeaten in 40 contests.
