Tyson Fury maintains his plan is to challenge Deontay Wilder for the WBC world heavyweight title before the end of the year as he steps up his comeback from a lengthy ban with a fight against Francesco Pianeta at Windsor Park on Saturday.
Fury, the former WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO champion, earned a fourth-round victory over Albania’s Sefer Seferi in Manchester in June as he fought for the first time in almost three years.
He was a huge favourite to win that fight and the bookmakers can’t see past a win for the Mancunian once again when he steps into the ring in Belfast, with the unbeaten Fury quoted at a best price of just 1/66 by William Hill. Ladbrokes are offering Evens* that the fight, which is scheduled for 10 rounds, will last under 6.5, while Bet365 go 9/4* that Fury will win the bout between rounds four to six.
Fury v Pianeta is part of a live double bill on BT Sport, also featuring Carl Frampton’s WBO featherweight title defence against the undefeated Australian Luke Jackson.
