Tyson Fury faces Francesco Pianeta at the weekend

Tyson Fury confirmed he will take on Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas after easing to a points decision win against Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday.

The seed has well and truly been planted, ladies and gentlemen.

Saunders and Wilder are in Belfast to watch Tyson Fury continue his comeback on Saturday evening.

Pianeta weighed in lighter than Fury at 18st (252 pounds) exactly.

The WBC heavyweight champion that has always been touted as Anthony Joshua's next plausible opponent, it is becoming ever more likely that Fury vs Wilder is a much more likely prospect.

"We are ready now, this fight is official", Wilder said.

Fury (26-0) and Wilder then came face to face in the lobby of Europa Hotel in Belfast, shouting at one another in the centre of a huddle surrounded by reporters.

New Speculation On Setting For Jon Favreau's Star Wars TV Series
Yesterday, Disney's CEO Bob Iger opened up about their new on-demand streaming service during Disney's 2nd quarter earnings call. The majority of the 30-minute Q&A session was about Disney's new streaming service which is set to compete with Netflix .

"Joshua's old news. The new kid in town is Fury".

"BT Sport and Frank Warren have created some fantastic Fight Nights on BT Sport and the launch of BT Sport Box Office across multiple platforms will give us the opportunity to make some huge bouts available to viewers across the United Kingdom".

Once Fury's victory was confirmed, Wilder took to the ring and the pair announced the bout together but stopped short of confirming a date or venue.

The 32-year-old American has made quite an impression on the Northern Irish capital since arriving. "I'll fight you in your back yard".

His last victory, to defend his WBC heavyweight title, was over Luis Ortiz with a stoppage in Round 10.

"What's concerning me is my legs looking very long and slender?"
