Deontay Wilder provides Tyson Fury update while ringside for Francesco Pianeta clash | Boxing | Sport


Wilder was in negotiations to fight Anthony Joshua but talks broke down and he is now close to agreeing a deal with the Gypsy King.

But first Fury must prove he is serious about once again challenging for world titles following his two-year drugs ban.

Fury is on the undercard of Carl Frampton vs Luke Jackson at a sold-out Windsor Park in Belfast.

And Wilder has flown over from the United States to hopefully tie up a deal.

“I am looking forward to trying to get a fight set with Tyson Fury,” Wilder told BT Sport.

“That is the main thing, so we are here to see Fury.

“I am also here to see Frampton as well, he is part of the stable.

“Ever since I came here, the time I got on the plan, the time in the airport, to the time from 3am to 8am this morning I have had nothing but love for Belfast.

“God bless Belfast and I hope we get this fight made with Tyson Fury.”

And Wilder says he is right behind Fury in his second comeback match.

“I am rooting for him as a fan,” Wilder said.

“I want to spark him out so I want him to win.

“I will be looking at his footwork. I will be looking at his technique, how he likes to slip and what he does when the guy comes in to press him.

“Basically how I am going to beat him in the ring.”
