Fury outpoints Pianeta and sets up heavyweight mega-bout with Wilder

Boxing- Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson & Tyson Fury v Francesco Pianeta Weigh In- Europa Hotel Belfast Britain

The week leading up to Fury's unanimous decision victory over Francesco Pianeta, which secured him the Wilder fight, has been peppered with lovely stories of exchanges with people who are not in a great place.

It still seems a fight too soon for Fury to be facing Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) after so much inactivity and after losing eight stones (112 pounds) for his comeback.

The 30 year-old had announced his arrival at Windsor Park with an epic ring walk to the sound of Sweet Home Alabama - perhaps a reference to Wilder's hometown - and later described it as his best ever entrance.

Former heavyweight champ Tyson Fury passed the second test of his comeback trail against Francesco Pianeta in Belfast Saturday night. "I said yes and now he gets a chance to fight the lineal champion of the world", said Fury, who has a 27-0 record.

The Mancunian is now set to challenge world champion Wilder in the USA.

Weinstein's accuser Asia Argento 'sexually assaulted' 17-yr-old
A month earlier, Argento had made public her allegations of sexual assault against defamed media mogul Harvey Weinstein . Then she kissed him, pushed him back on the bed, removed his trousers and performed oral sex.

"I'm going to knock you out, this I promise you; you are going to experience being hit by the Bronze Bomber", Wilder replied. I said "send me a contract".

"He better take this guy very seriously, you know".

"It is one thing that Tyson Fury has never had", he said. "In an ideal world I could have done with another 10 or 12 round fight but it's not an ideal world and sometimes you just have to step up to the plate and rise to the occasion and that's what I do". I do want to help people like that.

Fury, who switched to southpaw for the last two rounds, did not get the grandstand finish he or his promoter Warren wanted, but he did answer questions about his fitness, as he looked sharp until the end.

"If I didn't believe I could win I'd pack up and retire".

While several brokerages cut their price target for Tencent after its earnings, analysts were broadly upbeat on the outlook. Tencent also said players who purchased " Monster Hunter: World " were entitled to a full refund until August 20.

Wilder took the attention away from the scales at Friday's weigh-in AND then was involved in a rucus at Nando's. He's got some real dynamite in those hands.

"This man (Pianeta) couldn't land a blow on me tonight".

"I'm going to make him miss and make him pay".

"This was the performance I needed to prove against a tough opponent that I can move and box again at the best level".
