Tyson Fury is a 1/200 favourite to beat Pianeta on Saturday night, and victory should lead to the much-anticipated clash with Wilder later in the year.

Wilder got into a freakish shouting match with Fury's father John and then clashed with Tyson himself as the pair traded insults.

The 30-year-old cut a relaxed figure alongside Germany's Francesco Pianeta, who at 18st 2lbs was narrowly lighter, and Fury remained cool when Wilder, who goes by the nickname "Bronze Bomber", came into view yelling his trademark "Bomb squad", to which John Fury apparently took offence.

"When two fighters want to fight each other, it will happen".

Fury is a massive betting favourite to extend his flawless professional record to 27-0 and if he does, Wilder be sat ringside to confront his fellow undefeated heavyweight.

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.

"This is class, loving the hype between Fury and Wilder", one commented.

Frampton weighed in at 126lbs, with Jackson at 124lbs 12oz.
