Fury vs Pianeta: British heavyweight not distracted by Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury

"I'm very happy, everything is going smoothly, injury-free, training is going well".

Fury is as short as 1/100 in the betting but sometimes when you're the overwhelming favourite you can get a false sense of security, complacency is something he'll have to guard against. So if I can't beat Pianeta I might as well get on my knees and kiss his two feet because I'm clearly shot to pieces.

"He's a very risky opponent but in my mind I think I'm the greatest heavyweight that's ever been born so I should handle Francesco Pianeta". The fight will give us a better indication of where Tyson is at, both physically and mentally.

From what I've heard from the big man himself and his trainer, there's no reason to suspect anything other than a dominant and ruthless rendition from the man eager to win back the world titles he never lost in the ring.

Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis has revealed that he believes Tyson Fury is the most "difficult to beat" from the current heavyweight division, according to a report on RingNews24. "Let's face it, he's not really fought anybody and he's had 40 fights", Fury told a press conference on Tuesday. I've had two or three days off since my last fight.

"If I come through this then Wilder has the chance to fight me for the lineal championship". There's only a certain amount of fitness you can do in boxing, it's not about fitness, to be honest. He has an unorthodox, rangy style - not something you'd teach a kid as a coach, but he's a boxer's worst nightmare.

It will be a classic encounter and great for the heavyweight division as a whole.

"It's going to be a good fight". And it sums up what Carl brings to the table; he's one of those special fighters.

The Jackal is in his prime and this is his time to shine. I think there's 10 or 12 belts I've won.

IBF/WBA/WBO champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) was tipped to fight WBC titleholder Wilder in a unification bout, but the fighters failed to agree to terms.
