Tyson Fury Targets Wilder Bout

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.
