Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder made official after Fury wins unanimous decision

Tyson Fury vows to get ‘serious’ ahead of Francesco Pianeta showdown

The announcement was made in Belfast immediately following's the undefeated Fury's shutout decision of Francesco Pianeta.

Fury's promoter Frank Warren refused to say when and where the fight will happen, but the Gypsy King hinted it would be Las Vegas.

He took Wilder's WBC belt and paraded it around the ring. I said send me the contract, I said yes.

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

"I'll see you's in Vegas".

"They called and I answered, I said yes, and now he gets the chance to fight the lineal world heavyweight champion of the world", Fury said. "I am going to knock you out".

Wilder had attempted unsuccessfully to arrange a fight against Anthony Joshua but Fury is only too pleased to step in.

Two-and-a-half years on and the duo's goading duel - which continued this week with Wilder crashing Fury's weigh-in - will finally be settled in the ring.

None of this could take place without Fury taking care of business against Pianeta, and that's exactly what he did while getting in some much-needed rounds. Deontay Wilder said the fight is "official". 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 think it was a calculated boxing performance as promised", Fury said. "We came here to get the rounds in with a tough man, quite durable".

This year he can add the WBC title to his list of accomplishments if he beats the 32 year old Wilder who is also unbeaten at 40-0 and most importantly, an eye-catching 39 knockouts. We were happy with the performance.

With the expected trash talk from both sides, their unbeaten records and the fact that both tower at 6-foot-7 or above, there's enough of a theatrical and historic element to the fight that Wilder-Fury is expected to do big business.
