Fury's Coach: Our Focus Right Now is On Pianeta, Not Wilder

Trainer Ben Davison has not discussed the possibility of fighting Deontay Wilder with Tyson Fury and is determined to stay focused on Saturday’s opponent, Francesco Pianeta.
 
Promoter Frank Warren has asserted a deal for lineal heavyweight champion Fury (26-0-KO19) to face WBC holder Wilder (40-0-KO39) later this year is “very close”, and the American ‘Bronze Bomber’ is heading to Belfast to watch Fury strut his stuff at Windsor Park on Saturday.
 
Despite the lure of a chance to begin regaining the world titles Fury never lost in the ring, Davison is determined to keep the fighter’s focus on the very real challenge of Pianeta (35-4-1-KO21).

Davison said: “To be honest, we don’t even talk about the Wilder thing between ourselves. We’ve got the Pianeta thing to worry about.
 
“Like I’ve said before; physically alone, Pianeta is 6ft 5, over 17 stone and a southpaw – let alone the fact that he’s experienced and he’s been at world level.
 
“There were a few things [in the last fight] to improve on.
 
“One of the main things was that it was a long training camp. From the absolute start of things, he did not have a break – I think I gave him one week off in eight months.
 
“It’s about balancing things out. He had a week off after the Seferi fight and it all paid dividends – he’s got the eye of the tiger back.”
 
Fury’s clash with Pianeta features on a huge night of boxing – promoted by Frank Warren and live on BT Sport - that also includes Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson, Cristofer Rosales v Paddy Barnes and more.

I hope he looks great in this fight. No excuses for when Wilder puts him to sleep in the 5th.
