Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) established his jab against Pianeta (35-5-1, 21 KOs) and displayed the movement, hand speed and footwork that a prime “Gypsy King” utilized to dethrone Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to become the unified and lineal heavyweight champion.

“I think it was a calculated boxing performance, as promised,” said Fury, who was fighting for just the second time in nearly three years.  “We were able to get 10 good rounds in with a tough man.
