Fury fight will happen, insists WBC heavyweight champion Wilder

Tyson Fury

The 29-year-old will fight Francesco Pianeta this weekend

In what can only be described as out of the ordinary even for boxing, WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders hurled "half a chicken" at WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder at Nandos, a chicken restaurant in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Fury has returned to his usual fighting weight after ballooning up to 27 stone in his time away from the ring, weighing in at 18st 6lbs ahead of his clash with Francesco Pianeta. The victor of Fury-Wilder would have a completely different stance on the negotiating table for any bout with Anthony Joshua.

Wilder earned a reported £1.6m ($2.1m) from the fight, which is his payday to date.

Ms Faruqi said she was excited to bring "much needed diversity" to Canberra , and hoped her presence would encourage non-white Australians.

The fight continued in similar fashion, Fury capitalising on his sizeable reach advantage while rarely being troubled Pianeta, who was started to show signs of fatigue.

The first fight of his return was an nearly comical bout against Albanian cruiserweight Sefer Seferi in June, which ended after the fourth round when Fury's opponent quit.

Pianeta urged Fury to come forward in the tenth and final round, hoping to tempt the 30-year-old into a rash shot, but the former world champion offered no opportunities to take a comfortable victory in Belfast.

The 32-year-old American is 40-0 with 39 KOs since turning pro in 2008.

The fight went to the ninth round until a big right hand caused the opponent's team to throw in the towel.

His last victory, to defend his WBC heavyweight title, was over Luis Ortiz with a stoppage in Round 10.
