To his credit, Wilder did his best to remain poised during the session, after having already enjoyed an adventurous Friday that include post weigh-in scuffles with Fury and his father John, as well as a food fight with unbeaten middleweight titlist Billy Joe Saunders later in the day.
Fury maintained an active pace (62 per round to Pianeta's 22.8- hvt. avg.: 45), and while his jab was nullified by the German-based Italian's southpaw stance (7 of 394, 2%), Fury's accurate power punching (44% to Pianeta's 20%) more than compensated.

I'm here, baby. I just left the Fury weigh-ins and oh my god, was it insane! "It's no secret I needed the rounds to be able to show I can slip and slide still and I did just that". I thought that was a step up with the opponent and display.
Fury responded by saying: "Listen, you can't knock out what you can't hit". "We came here to get the rounds in with a tough man, quite durable". As the rounds progressed, Fury cranked up the pressure and began sitting down on his punches.
