Fury's father restrained as Wilder crashes Pianeta weigh

Tyson Fury warned Deontay Wilder that he would knock the American out when they eventually meet in their world heavyweight title fight.

Wilder responded with a threat of his own, saying: "It is one thing that Tyson Fury has never had".

The legendary former England worldwide is a big boxing fan and took the opportunity of his prime seats to introduce himself to Wilder, and even threw a gentle punch at his jaw. Styles make fights but when you're talking about Wilder, no-one knows what he is going to do - because he doesn't know either. I was working on my jab, slipping his punches. He is vulnerable and he can be hurt, and when you are coming across guys with the speed and explosive power, like Deontay Wilder and Haye, it isn't good.

"We are two men who will fight anybody", Fury said while face to face with Wilder.

After Wilder was unable to land a heavyweight showdown with Anthony Joshua, Fury injected himself into the conversation and openly challenged The Bronze Bomber. He had many belts, but he's never had the WBC belt.

'We are two men who will fight anybody, ' said Fury.

Meanwhile, Fury is set to make his second appearance following his lengthy hiatus from boxing.

Speaking exclusively to Starsport before the announcement, he said: "I'm hoping he [Tyson Fury] can come back". The bout will be the biggest heavyweight attraction since Anthony Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitschko in May of past year and the victor will be in prime position for the heavyweight world title unification bout with Joshua in 2019, in what would be the most lucrative fight in boxing.

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

But not everyone in British boxing shares Fury's confidence.

"The former heavyweight champion eased his way past the Italian, who started well enough but ultimately was outclassed by the 6′ 9" Brit.

"He is definitely not ready for Deontay Wilder", Bellew told Sky Sports.

"I don't think he'd ever beat Wilder".

Fury, 30, completed his second successful comeback bout of his summer against Pianeta in his return to the ring from a almost three-year layoff due to substance abuse and mental-health issues.
