Boxing News at Five: Fury gets to whack Pianeta, Whyte is being lined up for Joshua in April, and Moore predicts Fielding stoppage

I’M not sure how it happened, and I’m not sure what it means, but Francesco Pianeta, Tyson Fury’s next opponent, somehow didn’t appear on my list of 66 opponents better than Sefer Seferi published yesterday.

Let’s look at what these might be.
