SPARE a thought for Italy’s Francesco Pianeta.

The 33-year-old is in Belfast preparing for a fight he cannot possibly win on Saturday (August 18) at Windsor Park, and is, rather than an opponent for Tyson Fury, a mere inconvenience at this stage.

Get rid of him, Fury knows, and a fight, a much better one, against WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is all but guaranteed for November in either Las Vegas or New York. The hard-hitting American will even be sitting ringside on Saturday; waiting for his moment, waiting for Fury to dispose of Pianeta and invite him in.
