With the knowledge that his next outing would be for the WBC heavyweight title in the United States, Fury was eager to make Saturday night's clash against Francesco Pianeta last as long as possible.

According to sources reporting to FightNights.com, Fury and Wilder have agreed in principle for a Showtime-televised heavyweight championship fight that could take place in either November or December at an undisclosed location in Las Vegas.

Once Fury's victory was confirmed, Wilder took to the ring and the pair announced the bout together but stopped short of confirming a date or venue. "This is what we have been waiting for, the best fighting the best".

"This was the performance I needed to prove against a tough opponent that I can move and box again at the best level".

The 31-year-old Frampton, who defended the interim WBO title, said: "I'm not a world champion, Josh is a world champion".

Deontay Wilder has been in Belfast all week, and histrionics have followed the WBC heavyweight champion wherever he has been. Wilder will be ringside, and he and Fury are widely expected to step into the ring together in November.

When asked about the Wilder match-up in the post-fight press conference, Fury responded: "Who knows because the fight hasn't happened yet, but one thing I do know is i've been to America before and conquered it". This man (Pianeta) couldn't land a blow on me. I went 10 rounds and I was very happy with my performance.

"I have no words for Joshua, it's exclusively on Fury", Wilder told BBC Sport. Going into Wlad (Klitschko) I only had two fights: Dereck Chisora and Christian Hammer, then I had 10 months out before beating Wlad'. "You are going to feel the experience of being knocked out by the Bronze Bomber".

"I could have stood there and traded with him and blasted him but I didn't need a first-round knockout".

'At one stage I thought I was going to end up in a padded room, never mind be back boxing.

"If I ain't good enough so be it, I'm taking this fight because I know I can win".
