Tyson Fury has vowedto make "Italian sausage meat" out of Pianeta, who was born in Italy, but raised in Germany. 

"I study my heavyweights and I know he's fought some good men. He's a big strong fella. He's going to try and knock me out" Fury said.

"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.

"What you're likely to see from me on Saturday is a heavyweight Sugar Ray Leonard. Anything less is a failure. Judge me on that comment - a heavyweight Sugar Ray Leonard."

"If he chins me, I'll crawl on my knees and kiss his two feet because he's obviously a better man than me and a better man that I have ever been," the 30-year-old said.

"If I can beat Francesco Pianeta, I'll have beaten another boxer, big deal, but if he beats me, he is going on to something very big, life-changing for him, and if I can't beat Pianeta, I am going nowhere.

"I'm going to smash him to pieces, make Italian sausage out of him."
