Fury's father restrained as Wilder crashes Pianeta weigh

Feathers ruffled after British boxer chucks chicken at US fighter in Nando’s restaurant

The 30-year-old Fury, who dominated future Hall of Famer Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to win three belts in an upset unanimous decision before taking two years off to battle drug addiction and depression, is a heavy favorite, and is expected to win easily. If he takes the fight with Deontay Wilder, he's knocked basically every man he's ever faced out. Working on my boxing, get the rounds in.

Fury, the former world heavyweight champion, cleared the way for a fight with Wilder, the current WBC titleholder, by winning the second bout of his comeback on Sunday (NZ time).

He replied: "We are ready now". "This 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".

Next up for Fury will be Deontay Wilder, the WBC world champion, who was in Belfast.

The self-proclaimed "Gypsy King" stretched his unbeaten career record to 27-0-0 after a professional performance against Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday night.

Fury is scheduled to fight Francesco Pianeta on Saturday in Northern Ireland, but Wilder caused quite a scene at Friday's weigh-in by showing up unannounced and clashing with Fury's father.

“They called, I answered. "He's undefeated. They understand that", said the 66-year-old. "Ten months later I beat the reigning world heavyweight [champion] with one fight under my belt that year".

"I'm sat here in a great frame of mind and that is worth more than any money because at one stage I thought I was going to end up in a padded room, never mind being back boxing, I didn't think I was going to survive".

"One thing I promise when I go to Las Vegas is I am knocking you out!"

"You can't knock out what you can't hit". You don't know what that feels like but you will.

Speaking post-fight, Fury explained that he "needed the rounds" to get back to the desirable level he wishes to fight at.
