Tyson Fury vs. Francesco Pianeta - CompuBox Punch Stats

By CompuBox

Scaling 18 pounds lighter than in his first comeback fight two months earlier, Tyson Fury's improved hand and foot speed enabled him to easily out-speed and out-box the plodding Francesco Pianeta, who offered precious little resistance as he landed just 37 punches in 10 rounds and never more than 6 in any round.

Fury maintained an active pace (62 per round to Pianeta's 22.8- hvt. avg.: 45), and while his jab was nullified by the German-based Italian's southpaw stance (7 of 394, 2%), Fury's accurate power punching (44% to Pianeta's 20%) more than compensated.

Fury went to the body effectively, as 45% of his landed punches were to the flanks of the statuesque Pianeta (compubox avg.: 24.3%).

Fury excelled in rounds 6-10 as he out-landed Pianeta 71-21 overall en route to connect leads of 107-37 overall, 7-1 jabs and 100-36 power.

Referee Steve Gray's scoring: 100-90 Fury.

Tyson Fury set up a world title fight with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder with a points victory over Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday.

On just his second bout since ending a two-and-a-half year absence from the ring, former world champion Fury looked understandably rusty in just doing enough to see off journeyman Pianeta.

Fury will need to be far closer to the fighter that once dominated the heavyweight division when facing the undefeated Wilder.

That fight is expected to take place in Las Vegas later in the year with Fury's promoter Frank Warren confirming the venue and date will be announced next week.

Wilder was ringside in the Northern Irish capital and seemed to appreciate Fury's introduction to the ring accompanied by the tune of "Sweet Home Alabama", Wilder's home state.

There was much less to impress Wilder once the action got underway as Fury failed to land a knockout blow.

However, Fury controlled the fight throughout to stretch his own unbeaten professional record to 27-0.

What a masterful performance by Fury. I'll bet Wilder is really scared now!

[QUOTE=stealthradon;19032087]Pianeta got robbed. He was the better fighter. Fury missed more than 500 shots. You can't win if you miss more shots than your opponent.[/QUOTE] Definitely robbed, Frank Warren paid corrupted judges to get decision. You can't win if you…

It was really bad fight, Fury stink the place as always. Landed 7 jabs, what an amazing fighter... Bum.

LOL, those jab stats. Fury missing 387 jabs, Pianeta only landing 1.

If Fury had the body fat level of wilder, he'd be 15 stone as well. He needs to hit the weights. Also, Fury is lourded for his jab which he doesn't land!
