Warren: Fury-Wilder in ‘November or December’


Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren says his fight with Deontay Wilder will take place in either November or December.

The Manchester-born fighter set up a bout with the American for the WBC world heavyweight title by defeating Italy’s Francesco Pianeta in Belfast Saturday.

The pair traded barbs in the ring after Fury came through 10 rounds to secure a unanimous points victory in just his second fight since returning from more than two years out of boxing.

Promoter Warren told BBC Radio Five Live:

“”All of the terms are agreed. We’re working at the moment on the date and the venue.

“We have another unification match with Josh Warrington and Carl Frampton and we don’t want a clash on those two dates.

“One of those fights will be in November, and one will be in December.”

Warren also confirmed a 50-50 split in the fight purse and said the venue would “probably” be Las Vegas.

“”Tyson is not fazed by boxing abroad. It doesn’t bother him.

“He went to Germany, Klitschko’s backyard, and came away with the prize and he’s confident of doing the same to Wilder.”
