Tyson Fury promises to knock out Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas fight

Wilder's next defence of his WBC heavyweight title was confirmed on Saturday night, with Tyson Fury getting the next shot at "The Bronze Bomber".

And the 30-year-old even admitted that he would rather have had one more against weaker opposition before facing Wilder. It's on. This fight is official.

Wilder will have seen little from Fury in his win over Pianeta to concern him before their proposed fight in Las Vegas in November.

Italian Francesco Pianeta went the full 10 rounds but proved no real match for former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

He eased to victory against Francesco Pianeta at Belfast's Windsor Park on Saturday night amid clear signs of ring rust, and will only be fighting under new trainer Ben Davison for just the third time.

The lack of drama contributed to the 25,000-strong crowd - most fans had been soaked in the rain - booing at the fight's final bell and when Gray's decision was announced, but their boos then turned to cheers when Wilder joined him in the ring to confirm their fight. This fight will happen.

"I can't wait to fight you because I am going to knock you out".

Wilder is in Belfast as he bids to set up a mega-bout against Tyson Fury. The fight itself wasn't much to write home about, but Fury was never an Anthony Joshua-type boxer when it comes to dismissing over-matched opponents.

"They called, I answered".

"Saunders looks terrified", they said.

But subsequent battles with depression, cocaine and a prolonged two-year backdated ban over a positive drugs test for banned substance nandrolone saw him relinquish his titles and balloon up to 27 stone.

'We ready now, this fight we are having is on.

"Going into the Klitschko fight [in November 2015], I had two fights beforehand: Dereck Chisora [November 2014] and Christian Hammer in February 2015". Wilder was born in Alabama.

An understanding exists between the pair, partly as a effect of Fury revealing it was Wilder who helped inspire him to get into shape and return to the ring. I think we all know who we are talking about, the biggest s--box in world boxing.

"I'm very awkward to land on and I'll give Wilder his credit but I've not got a glass chin".

The 6-foot-7 Wilder is 40-0 with 39 knockouts and American's only heavyweight champion since 2007.

Fury told Wilder: "I'm knocking you the f*** out, boy".
