Fury's father restrained as Wilder crashes Pianeta weigh

Fury's father restrained as Wilder crashes Pianeta weigh

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder crashed Tyson Fury's weigh-in Friday in Northern Ireland.

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) had only landed in Belfast that afternoon but went straight to Fury's weigh-in at the Europa Hotel.

Early on Fury was taking it easy, winning the rounds without difficulty and using Pianeta to work on his timing and defense, noticeably lighter on his feet than last time out.

Fury was typically exuberant after his win and after showing Wilder some courtesy, he promised to knock the 32-year-old "the f**k out".

Earlier today we brought you a video showing a heated exchange between Wilder and Tyson Fury's dad ahead of the Manchester-native's showdown with Francesco Pianeta tomorrow night.

"Joshua's old news. The new kid in town is Fury".

His team had been negotiating to fight WBA, WBO and IBF champion Anthony Joshua but talks fell through.

Studio coverage of SHOWTIME BOXING INTERNATIONAL from NY begins at 3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 p.m. PT with host Brian Custer and Hall of Fame analyst Steve Farhood providing pre-and post-fight analysis. It was, on closer inspection, more of an altercation over a comment apparently made by Saunders and which riled Wilder.

Fury looked far trimmer than he did in his first comeback fight against Sefer Seferi and more focused too.

Fury is a massive betting favourite to extend his ideal professional record to 27-0 and if he does, Wilder be sat ringside to confront his fellow undefeated heavyweight.

However, Fury appeared to let the cat out the bag by revealing the bout would be in Vegas and the pair are expected to fight later this year in November or December.
