Boxing: Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder is OFFICIAL


Tyson Fury insists he is ready to face Deontay Wilder after only two fights on the comeback trail. A media tour is expected early next month to confirm the details of the event, and according to Daily Telegraph, the fight will be on Nov 17 in Las Vegas.

In front of a 25,000-sellout crowd at Windsor Park, Fury shook off any ring rust and showed genuine focus for the task against a limited opponent.

Despite his out-of-the-ring problems, lay-off and lack of action against top-level opponents, the Manchester-based boxer feels ready for Wilder, who will make the eighth defense possibly on November 10 or 17 in Las Vegas.

Fury, who weighed 18 stones 6 pounds for Pianeta (35-5-1, 21 KOs), plans on being 18 stones when he faces Wilder.

That said, both fighters are expected to earn upwards of £10 million each from the world title fight, which will be on pay-per-view on BT Sport, and televised in the US by Showtime.

The winner of this fight will most probably fight Anthony Joshua in the biggest Heavyweight fight of this century.
