Wythenshawe born Tyson Fury is to fight Francesco Pianeta at Northern Ireland’s Windsor Park in August.

Fury stopped Sefer Seferi last month in his first fight since winning his world titles in November 2015.

The former world heavyweight champion will now take on two-time world title challenger Pianeta, who lost to Klitschko in a title fight in 2013.

The German based two-time world title challenger Pianeta has 21 knockout wins on his record, but fell short in world championship challenges against Wladimir Klitschko and Ruslan Chagaev.

“The Seferi fight is history and Pianeta is a far better operator than him,” said promoter Frank Warren adding,”His level of opposition tells you that.”
