DEONTAY WILDER has accused Anthony Joshua of damaging the reputation of British boxing but says Tyson Fury has helped restore it by agreeing to face him this winter.

The Bronze Bomber was in Belfast this weekend to watch Fury’s 10-round shut-out victory over Francesco Pianeta from ringside at Windsor Park.

Having successfully negotiated what was his second fight since nearly
1,000 days in boxing exile, Fury is now set for a crack at Wilder’s WBC belt with a November date in Las Vegas expected to be formally announced soon.
