"I'll go to Vegas for free and fight Wilder".
Wilder vs. Fury, a 12-round matchup for Wilder's WBC Heavyweight World Championship, will be produced and distributed by SHOWTIME PPV.
The American Wilder then entered the ring and said: "We are ready now". It is on. This fight is official.
"BT Sport and Frank Warren have created some fantastic Fight Nights on BT Sport and the launch of BT Sport Box Office across multiple platforms will give us the opportunity to make some huge bouts available to viewers across the United Kingdom". Fury upset Wladimir Klitschko by decision in late 2015 but never defended a trio of titles he was forced to vacate the following year.
The details of the fight will be announced next week according to Frank Warren, promoter of Fury, but his ward announced the possible venue when he confronted Wilder. "They called. I answered". I said send me a contract, they sent me a contract. I said yes. Now he gets a chance to fight the lineal champion.
He took Wilder's WBC belt and paraded it around the ring. While David Haye argued that Fury was perhaps holding back so as not "to scare" Wilder away, certain viewers have been less generous. "If he thinks about having this belt he had better wake up and apologize".
These guys, you can't give them opportunities to hit you on the chin. You don't know what that feels like but you will.
"Nothing is going to stop me from winning my belts back, nothing".
The two fighters needed to be separated by security after the weigh-in. Wilder will be ringside, and he and Fury are widely expected to step into the ring together in November.
"It was a calculated boxing performance as promised". I went 10 rounds and I was very happy with my performance.
Instead, Fury is enjoying boxing again and looked in better shape against Pianeta, showing plenty of movement as he worked behind an effective jab with lots of feinting and slipping. "It's no secret that I need the rounds".
This is the third-biggest fight that could be made.
