Fury outpointed Francesco Pianeta last night at Windsor Park, his second win in 10 weeks after brushing aside an undersized Sefer Seferi in Manchester back in June.

Warren added that the fight with Wilder would "probably" take place in Las Vegas.

Warren said he saw signs of "the old Tyson Fury" in his victory over Italian Pianeta and stressed that his fighter was "ready to go" against Wilder, despite only boxing twice since beating Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November 2015 to become WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion.

The 32-year-old American boasts 39 KOs in 40 professional bouts. This is what we have been waiting for right here.

Following up on September's blockbuster rematch between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, Fury's Stateside battle will be a feature event on our new pay-per-view channel, BT Sport Box Office HD, which will be available on BT TV, Sky and Virgin platforms. I said "send me a contract".

The WBC heavyweight champion gave Fury his belt, who paraded it around the ring before handing it back. "I needed rounds and that was always the plan".

Fury said: "Wilder congratulated me afterwards and said it was a great performance".

Tyson Fury's father had to be restrained after Deontay Wilder crashed the weigh-in for his fight against Francesco Pianeta on Friday.

Wilder climbed into the ring to join Fury, who was given the decision 100-90 on points on referee Steve Gray's scorecard, and confirmed that they would meet for Wilder's WBC belt. "One thing I promise when I get to Las Vegas is that I am knocking you the fuck out!" We were happy with the performance.

Fury is now planning "a couple of weeks" of holiday before returning to training with his world title fight less than three months away. I thought that was a step up with the opponent and display.

"You've never been knocked out but you're going to feel the experience, what it feels to get hit by the Bronze Bomber".

"I could have stood there and traded with him and blasted him but I didn't need a first-round knockout". The best fighting the best'.
