It has been strongly rumoured that a super-fight between Wilder and Fury will become a reality if the Englishman secures his expected victory on Saturday.

"They called, I answered".

The WBC heavyweight champion has flown to Belfast from the United States to be ringside to watch the action at Windsor Park. I said send me the contract, I said yes.

His boxing license was suspended in October 2016, but was reinstated in January of this year.

Fury weighed in at 18st 6lbs (258 pounds) ahead of only his second fight in nearly three years and is over a stone lighter than he was in June, ahead of his clash with Sefer Seferi.

Early on Fury was taking it easy, winning the rounds without difficulty and using Pianeta to work on his timing and defense, noticeably lighter on his feet than last time out.

A bout between Wilder and Joshua has been mooted for several months but drawn-out negotiations have failed, with the Alabama fighter stating he is now not interested in facing Joshua at Wembley in April, despite a date at the stadium already being in place.

"He is a racist cunt I think, I personally think he is", Saunders told IFL TV. I thought that was a step-up and a better boxing display.

"I'm coming to knock you out, plain and simple".

The fight went to the ninth round until a big right hand caused the opponent's team to throw in the towel.

It's going off in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The WBC heavyweight champion that has always been touted as Anthony Joshua's next plausible opponent, it is becoming ever more likely that Fury vs Wilder is a much more likely prospect.
