Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder in chaotic confrontation at Belfast weigh

"As soon as he gets this guy out of the way, it's done".

Now, both heavyweights have managed to find their way to each other, clashing in the lobby of the Belfast hotel where the weigh-ins took place. "That's how simple it is".

It certainly seems like Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are on a heavyweight collision course.

Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel told the same organisation that the bout will take place in, 'November or December in NY or Las Vegas'.

Asked for a message for 30-year-old Fury, Wilder said, "Be ready". Wilder's visit to Northern Ireland is viewed as a delayed response to Fury's in-ring challenge of 2016 when he traveled to Brooklyn to watch the American take on Artur Szpilka. Paddy Barnes' fight against WBC flyweight champion Cristofer Rosales will open proceedings, followed by Fury. "I'm coming to knock you out, plain and simple". "Fury has to do what he needs to tomorrow (Saturday) so that when we come to fight, that's how much excitement and aggression there will be".

Tyson Fury (26-0, 19 KOs) is expected to be announced as Wilder's next opponent should he win Saturday night against Pianeta.

Wilder is in town to sit ringside during their bout.

Since then Anthony Joshua has scooped up the belts vacated by Tyson Fury during his absence, while Deontay Wilder WBC title, thought to be equally prestigious.

"I have no words for Joshua, it's exclusively on Fury", Wilder said.
