"In Nandos met Deontay Wilder".

The pair are in Northern Ireland ahead of a major boxing double-header involved Tyson Fury, a friend of Saunders's, and Carl Frampton.

The Englishman is returning from a lengthy bid on the sidelines where he grappled with mental health issues, this after winning the highest honors in the sport off the back of a Wladimir Klitschko victory in November 2015.

Wilder, the WBC heavyweight world champion, is set to be ringside on Saturday night and is expected to fight Fury providing he beats Pianeta. The issue here is that Deontay Wilder has promised both men they would do battle in 2019.

Wilder had an aggressive confrontation with Fury's father John, and then had to be separated from the British heavyweight, who will be in action at Windsor Park this weekend. He has targeted Fury since negotiations for a unification fight with Anthony Joshua ended unsuccessfully, and of Saturday's fight with the 33-year-old Pianeta, Wilder said: "Fury's going to win, then I'm going to knock him out". It is likely, however, that Wilder wasn't familiar with the venue, as he shouted his "Bomb Squad" catchphrase repeatedly.

Deontay Wilder's screams were pretty hard to muffle in the highly concentrated room.
