Deontay Wilder crashes Tyson Fury's weigh

"This is what we've been waiting for - the best fighting the best".

The first fight of his return was an nearly comical bout against Albanian cruiserweight Sefer Seferi in June, which ended after the fourth round when Fury's opponent quit.

"The fight's on. The details will be revealed but the fight's on", he said.

Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion, owns a 40-0 record with 39 knockouts after a TKO victory over Luis Ortiz in his most recent fight March 3.

“They called, I answered. "Joshua is old news, there's a new kid in town - Tyson Fury".

In Vegas he will paid the biggest purse of his career - significantly more than that earned as the mandatory challenger to Wladimir Klitschko - and one that at 30 will mean he never needs to fight again, but he insisted: 'I'm not going into this for a pay cheque. I said yes. Now he gets a chance to fight the lineal champion.

The United States doubled tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminium last week, which contributed to a tumble in the Turkish lira. The lira recovered on Tuesday from near-record lows, helped by liquidity measures from the Turkish central bank.

While Francesco Pianeta was scarcely thought to be any match for the unbeaten heavyweight, much was being made pre-fight of the presence of Deontay Wilder at ringside.

The American, 32, argued with Fury's team at Friday's weigh-in for the Englishman's bout with Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday.

"My promise is, I got my 10 rounds here tonight, but one thing I promise when I get to Las Vegas, I am knocking you the f*** out bum".

"I know what life is like on the other side of having no hope and nothing", Fury said. This was a step up in opponent and a better display. "You are going to feel the experience of being knocked out by the Bronze Bomber". "I can't wait to meet the man that beat the man so when I beat the man I become the man, you understand?"

It was in the sixth when Fury swung and missed with a wild right hook, a shot he perhaps threw in the knowledge he could take such a risk. Styles make fights but when you're talking about Wilder, no-one knows what he is going to do - because he doesn't know either.
