Only 500 hundred tickets left.

Frampton v Jackson

But the real story is Tyson Fury, one of very few lineal heavyweight world champions, meaning the man who beat the man going right back through the history of world champions into the 19th century, John L. Sullivan 1885, fighting the Italian, Francesco Pianeta. You might be surprised how many great heavyweight champions were not lineal. There is no lineal world champion in the heavyweight division today, because Fury was stripped of his titles following his mental breakdown. He has lost ten stone in weight ( from a jawdropping 28st) and if he wins this fight he will face America's Deontay Wilder, who Joshua simply doesn't want to fight. Wilder will be ringside in Belfast on Saturday night. Fury's first fight in the open air.

Fury looks and sounds super confident, super relaxed. He is a long way off being my favourite or most rated heavyweight of all-time, but he is certainly the most entertaining and honest fighter I've ever heard, at any weight. I would love to see Fury v Wilder.

Deontay Wilder arrives in Belfast to watch Tyson Fury at Windsor Park tonight.

I have to say, I am surprised by his amiable demeanor. He is an exceptionally unorthodox and ferocious heavyweight with a record of 40-0, but here he is entering the Europa Hotel with all the time in the world for the fans.

Fury wins on points ( won every round).

Now onto the $80m superfight with Deontay Wilder in America.

Some industrial language in this post-fight in the ring face off, but both men respect each other.

Carl the Jackyl wins again. 9th round with the towel coming in. The best fighter N. Ireland has ever produced. The boy is a machine. Onto a tear-up with Josh Warrington now. Both fighters are managed by Frank Warren so this fight is as easy as it gets to make. No wonder Warren was smiling last night. With Frampton and Fury both winning the dollar signs must've been dazzling. I can't see Warrington lasting with Carl.
