Deontay Wilder Views Fury as Perfect Opponent For Big Fight

Two of the biggest names in the heavyweight division are expected to come face-to-face at Windsor Park this weekend.

WBC champion Deontay Wilder landed into Belfast on Friday ahead of Tyson Fury’s fight with Francesco Pianeta. He then came to the official weigh-in, and traded words with Fury before a lively crowd of fans.

If Fury wins, it’ll be Wilder next for the world title - and he’s described Fury as his “perfect dancing partner”.


Wilder said: “He’s got great energy, I’ve got great energy as well. He’s a talker, I’m a talker. He’s tall, I’m tall.

"He’s awkward, I’m awkward. I have the perfect dancing partner right here.

“It’s like dancing with the stars, we’re going to see who has the best footwork, we’re going to see who has the best of everything. I believe I am that man.

“He believes he is that man, and that’s what it takes to bring a great fight.

“That’s what I love about him, he’s got a personality just as I, it’s almost similar. But there can only be one and that’s Deontay Wilder, the Bronze Bomber.”

Meanwhile Fury has vowed to get "serious" against Pianeta when he bids to secure a fight with Wilder.

He said: "I'm not normally serious about anything in my life, everything is fun and games - even (defeating Wladimir) Klitschko.

"I wasn't serious - I was doing dance moves, everything. But Ben wants this serious, he will get serious.

"I'll go in there and do my job and that's it. I won't even smile once. I feel totally rejuvenated; I'm even talking better."

A 25,000-strong crowd is expected at Windsor Park as Carl Frampton defends his interim WBO featherweight title against Luke Jackson.

Frampton said: "It's going to be so tough. It might make him fold or it might gee him up, but one thing's for sure, it won't be easy for him."
