Tyson Fury to Deontay Wilder: I'm Knocking You the F*** Out!

By Keith Idec

Promoter Frank Warren wouldn’t reveal when and where, but he confirmed Saturday night that a deal is in place for Deontay Wilder to defend his WBC heavyweight title against former champion Tyson Fury in his next fight.

The Wilder-Fury fight will take place either in November or December at an undetermined Las Vegas venue. Warren said the date and site will be announced next week at a press conference.

Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) and Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) came face-to-face in the ring following Fury’s easy decision victory over Francesco Pianeta on Saturday night on the Carl Frampton-Luke Jackson undercard at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland.


The 6-feet-9, 258-pound Fury used his jab and movement to carefully defeat Italy’s Pianeta in their 10-rounder, but the brash British star promised Wilder that their fight will end inside the distance.

“I got me rounds in here tonight, 10 rounds, but one thing I promise when I go to Las Vegas is I’m knocking you the f*** out, bum,” Fury yelled in Wilder’s face after the fight.

Wilder smiled at Fury after his prediction. They shook hands before leaving the ring.

“We’re ready now,” Wilder said. “This fight will happen. It’s on. This fight is official. It’s on, baby. This is what we’ve been waiting for here – the best fighting the best.”

Fury agreed.

“We are two men that will fight anybody,” Fury said. “This man has been has been trying to make a fight with the other chump. I think we all know who we’re talking about – the biggest sh*those inside boxing.”

[QUOTE=daggum;19031967]he was awful because he was facing someone who could beat him at long range and so it completely took away all his tactics:the jab, and the grab when smaller guy tries to get close enough to actually throw punches)…
