TYSON FURY has stressed his confidence that he will face – and beat – Deontay Wilder after next month’s clash with Francesco Pianeta.

Fury, who takes on Italian Pianeta at Belfast’s Windsor Park on August 18 in the second fight of his comeback, said on social media on Monday that he was in talks with WBC heavyweight champion Wilder, adding: “Negotiations are very strong for December, we’re almost done for this deal.”

He also said that, having beaten Pianeta, he would knock Wilder out, and suggested the contest would take place in either New York or Las Vegas.
