Tyson Fury goaded heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder ahead of his clash with Francesco Pianeta at Windsor Park on Saturday.
Fury’s comeback continues with a showdown against the experienced Pianeta, with Wilder present at ringside in Belfast in his role as TV analyst.
"If I come through this then Wilder has the chance to fight me – the lineal champion. Let’s face it, he’s not fought anybody," Fury said.
Pianeta, who was born in Italy but is based in Germany, has won all but five of his 40 fights, with Wladimir Klitschko, Ruslan Chagaev and Oliver McCall the bigger names on his record.
"I study my heavyweights and I know he’s fought some good men. He’s a big strong fella and he knows that if he wins he will fight Wilder instead of me," Fury said.
"He’s going to try and knock me out. Hopefully he won’t be successful and we’ll put on a show.
"He’s southpaw which is a lot more awkward because there aren’t many of them in the division, so it’s hard to get sparring. But every southpaw I’ve ever fought I’ve knocked out."
