After seeing off Sefer Seferi at a canter in the fourth round of his last fight, Tyson Fury is on the rampage for another comeback victory. If he takes out Pianeta as expected, it should see him line him up for a fight against Deontay Wilder next.
Despite the last fight being Fury’s first since he beat Vladimir Klitschko in 2015 for the world heavyweight title, he appears to still have his form. Now the 33-year-old Pianeta, at a five-stone weight and four-inch height disadvantage, stands in the way of Fury’s ultimate end goal – a fight against Anthony Joshua.
Fury sounds confident saying: “I’m feeling healthy as a trout, fit as a flea. I’m very happy, everything is going smoothly, injury-free, training is going well. Just the same routine day in, day out for the last 10 weeks. I’ve had two or three days off since my last fight, I got straight back in the gym.”
