"One thing I promise when I go to Las Vegas is I am knocking you out!"

He said: "I'm looking forward to getting a fight set with Tyson Fury".

The 30-year-old then backed himself to come up trumps in America once again - five years ago he knocked out Steve Cunningham in NY - quoting Frank Sinatra in the process.

"I'm not going into this fight for the pay cheque", Fury said. He had one of the biggest punching right hands in the history of boxing and he did land it but not effectively and not cleanly because I'm always riding the shots.

Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, who was standing near the two fighters in the ring, said an announcement will be made next week. "I was working on my boxing to slip and slide and use the jab".

"BT Sport and Frank Warren have created some fantastic Fight Nights on BT Sport and the launch of BT Sport Box Office across multiple platforms will give us the opportunity to make some huge bouts available to viewers across the United Kingdom".

And the former unified heavyweight world champion and the lineal champion of the world was in good tune during his press conference, inviting a member of his team and the packed media room to join him in a rendition of the Don McLean classic, American Pie.

However, Fury admitted his path to the title had been shortened a little more than he would like.

Unlike Fury's previous clash against Sefer Seferi, this did not descend into a complete farce, with Pianeta at least lasting the distance.

Despite his out-of-the-ring problems, lay-off and lack of action against top level opponents, the Manchester-based boxer feels ready for Wilder, who will make an eighth defense possibly on November 10 or 17 in Las Vegas. "It's no secret I needed the rounds and I did that tonight".

"I know what life is like on the other side of having no hope and nothing", Fury said.

"He'd better take this guy very seriously".

"I'm happy to be here but I'm sorry to tell you that Fury will not be bringing the WBC belt back here".
