Fury fight will happen insists WBC heavyweight champion Wilder

Deontay Wilder Confronts Tyson Fury In Belfast, Real Or Fake?

Tyson Fury is set to make his second appearance following his lengthy hiatus from boxing. A rematch clause was punched, and subsequently abandoned.

Deontay Wilder made quite an entrance as he arrived in Northern Ireland Friday, gate-crashing Tyson Fury's weigh-in and clashing with his father, John. The issue here is that Deontay Wilder has promised both men they would do battle in 2019.

Wilder has targeted Fury since negotiations for a unification fight with IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua ended unsuccessfully.

Fury has returned to his usual fighting weight after ballooning up to 27 stone in his time away from the ring, weighing in at 18st 6lbs ahead of his clash with Francesco Pianeta.

Plenty of fun and games happened earlier on at today's weigh-in when Wilder stormed Fury's weigh-in and resulted in some harmless promotion.

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

With rumours circling that a matchup between the two is close to being finalised, do not be surprised if things become official if Fury is able to overcome the challenge Pianeta will offer him on Saturday night.

Wilder will be ringside on Saturday, and is likely to be Fury's next opponent should he come out on top against Pianeta.

Who do you have winning this dream matchup: Fury or Wilder?
