Tyson Fury explains how simple it has been to organise Deontay Wilder fight

Tyson Fury has revealed a deal has almost been struck for the Gypsy King to fight WBC heavyweight title-holder, Deontay Wilder.

A mere two days of negotiations look to have led to a bout held in the States at the end of the year, in what can certainly be described as a clash of two heavyweight titans.

Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, revealed the two camps were discussing a fight earlier this week, and after quick discussions, Fury is confident the two will meet if he can get past Francesco Pianeta in his second comeback fight.

“It’s finally going to happen, providing I beat Pienata,” Fury told Behind The Gloves.

“I don’t know what he (Wilder) is going to do if he has a fight in between or not but he will have to beat his mandatory in Brazil if he does, and then it’s a collision course. 

“I just hope we put on a massive, massive show for the fans.”

The belief was that Wilder would battle unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, but Eddie Hearn revealed the American’s demands were unreasonable and impossible to meet.

This hasn’t appeared to be an issue for Fury’s team, who have apparently wrapped up negotiations at an impressive speed.

“It’s been very very easy to make this fight,” Fury added.

“I’ve heard these promoters speaking bull**** that he’s (Wilder) been making demands that can’t be met, but I haven’t found that to be the case at all. 

“We have basically done this deal in two days. It has been the most straightforward and least complicated deal I have ever done and found him and his team gentlemen to deal with.”

Fury returned to boxing in June after nearly three years away from the ring, comfortably beating 39-year-old Albanian, Sefer Seferi.

Wilder will certainly represent a step up in competition for Fury if they meet in December, but the former unified WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, Ring magazine and lineal heavyweight champion is confident he can defeat Wilder.

“Me and Deontay have been back and forth for years. I think he’s great for boxing. He’s (Wilder) the most dangerous heavyweight out there, barring none,’ Fury said.

“But after I kick his ass, I’ll take him out around Las Vegas and show him how to party. Las Vegas is the destination, so I’ve been told. December’s the month, 2018 is the year.

“Unleash the Gypsy King in Las Vegas and we’ll paint the town red, completely. It’s going to be a massive boxing event, you’ve got two of the biggest heavyweights in the world. The biggest mouths, it’s going to be an epic battle.

“You’ve got two men who are not afraid to take fights. I went to Germany and beat Wladimir Klitschko, I’m about to go to Ireland to beat Francesco Pianeta, and then the next stop is Las Vegas. I’m on the road.”

Fury’s next fight against Francesco Pianeta takes place on the 18th August.
