Fury vs Pianeta results LIVE: Every undercard fight plus Frampton vs Jackson

Fury just needs to beat Pianeta in his second fight since returning from a drugs ban to set up a mouth-watering heavyweight world title fight with Deontay Wilder.

WBC belt holder Wilder will be ringside, working as a pundit for broadcaster BT Sport, when the Gypsy King steps into the ring against Pianeta.

And they could confirm their next bout in the direct aftermath of the fight, so long as Fury is victorious.

But the Fury vs Pianeta bout is just the warm-up for Frampton vs Jackson, where the pair are fighting for a world title shot at either WBO holder Oscar Valdez or newly-crowned IBF champion Josh Warrington.

Frampton will fulfil a lifelong dream of performing in front of 24,000 fans at Northern Ireland’s home football stadium.

But most of the attention will be drawn to Fury and Wilder – who are expected to clash because negotiations with Anthony Joshua broke down last month.

“I have no words for Joshua, it’s solely on Fury,” Wilder told BBC Sport. “Joshua is old news, there’s a new kid in town – Tyson Fury.

“He is the true champion on this side of the pond. And now he’s going to face the lone and reigning champion, the WBC champion, the king, the man, the legend, the bronze bomber and it’s going to be a great fight.”
