Tyson Fury already has one eye on Wilder ahead of Windsor Park fight

Tyson Fury goaded heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder ahead of his clash with Francesco Pianeta at Windsor Park on Saturday.

Fury's comeback continues with a showdown against the experienced Pianeta, with Wilder present at ringside in Belfast in his role as TV analyst.

"If I come through this then Wilder has the chance to fight me - the lineal champion. Let's face it, he's not fought anybody," Fury said.

Fury made his comeback after two-and-a-half years out of the ring by overwhelming Sefer Seferi inside four rounds two months ago.

"The old Tyson Fury is gone, never to be seen again in history. The new Tyson Fury is here now. All I can promise is to put on a good fight," said Fury, speaking at a press conference in Belfast.

"I do want to win a world title again so I have to raise my game after three years out of the game nearly and ballooning up to 28stones.

"To lose that weight has been mentally and physically draining and to do it there has to be a want in the brain and I have that. That's why I'm a sick boxer and I win fights."
