Deontay Wilder: I Promise - Fury Will Be a Knockout Victim!

Tyson Fury's eagerly anticipated heavyweight clash with WBC champion Deontay Wilder was confirmed after the Briton defeated Francesco Pianeta on Saturday.

Wilder was ringside at Windsor Park as Fury fought on the undercard for Carl Frampton versus Luke Jackson, with a dominant 100-90 points win secured before the expected announcement was made in the ring.

Wilder had seemingly been set to take on Anthony Joshua before negotiations broke down and Fury stepped up.

The still unbeaten Fury had entered the ring to 'Sweet Home Alabama', an apparent reference to Wilder's birthplace, as his rival sang along and recorded the event on his phone.

“There’s one thing Tyson Fury has never had. He’s won a lot of belts but he’s never had the WBC belt. If he ever even thinks about having this belt he better wake up and apologize to me because it will never happen," Wilder said.

"I can’t wait to fight you because I am going to knock you out. This I promise you. Every man who has ever stepped in the ring with me, I’ve knocked them out in devastating fashion. You’ve never been knocked out, but you’re going to feel the experience of what it’s like to be hit by the Bronze Bomber.”

Frank Warren, Fury's promoter, promised that details will follow next week, but Fury appeared to give away the location as Las Vegas.

Once the action got underway, Fury invited Pianeta on and boxed with a focus that was perhaps missing last time out, displaying little of the distracting showmanship seen against Sefer Seferi in his comeback bout.

With neither fighter doing any real damage, Fury maintained control of proceedings and finally landed a heavy left to the body in the seventh round.

Pianeta was given time to recover, with the shot deemed a low blow, but he started to show signs of struggle and any threat to his esteemed opponent waned, jeers greeting the end of the 10th and final round before Wilder took centre stage.

[QUOTE=BillyBoxing;19034532]That's basically what I said in my first comment dude. So I can see you finally get it.[/QUOTE] My point is that if he out boxes Wilder at all, it'll be by design and nothing suggests that he would out…

Fury is cashing out. He was not the same boxer who beat Klitshcko a couple of years ago.
