Deontay Wilder says Tyson Fury bout will 'definitely' happen this year

At the weigh-in in Belfast, Wilder crashed the party by making an bad lot of noise, swiftly turning his attention into an altercation with Fury's father, John.

The seed has well and truly been planted, ladies and gentlemen.

Wilder is in Northern Ireland to promote the likely bout between himself and Fury, should the Gyspy King overcome 33-year-old Pianeta.

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

Pianeta will be Fury's second opponent since the former unified world heavyweight champion took a two-and-a-half-year break from the sport as he battled depression and was given a period of ineligibility by United Kingdom anti-doping.

Following up on September's blockbuster rematch between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, Fury's Stateside battle will be a feature event on our new pay-per-view channel, BT Sport Box Office HD, which will be available on BT TV, Sky and Virgin platforms.

Wilder will be ringside for Saturday's fight, according to ESPN, and a future showdown between him and Fury could be announced immediately afterward, assuming Fury defeats Pianeta.

Undefeated heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder is on the verge of landing the high-profile heavyweight title fight he has desperately sought. The elder Fury had to be restrained from going at Wilder.

Saunders' attack looks to be retaliation for incidents earlier Friday between Wilder and the Fury family. "Ours is the biggest fight".

Speaking exclusively to Starsport before the announcement, he said: "I'm hoping he [Tyson Fury] can come back".

After initially shaking hands with Fury's father, John, things got heated.
