Ahead of tomorrow night’s big heavyweight fight in Belfast lets take a look at the Tyson Fury fight time in terms of his ring walk for his bout with Francesco Pianeta.
Fury came in light at today’s weigh-ins showing he’s hell-bent on landing a Deontay Wilder title shot by the end of the year but first thing’s first, he must get past Pianeta.
Fury is not actually the main event tomorrow night, funnily enough, as you’d think he is with all the commotion surrounding him and Deontay Wilder ahead of the event.
He will be the co-main event before Carl Frampton’s main event fight with Luke Jackson.
So with coverage on TV local time on BT in the UK expected to start at about 7.45pm, it would be reasonable to estimate Fury will be in the ring somewhere between 8.45pm-9pm.
An hour earlier than you might have thought if he was headlining.
That works out as 12.45pm-1pm on Saturday afternoon on the West coast in the US, 3.45pm-4pm in the East.
Yes, it’s an earlier start if you’re in the US but at the same time, it’s a nice afternoon time before you head out and make plans for your Saturday evening.
It will be shown live on Showtime’s online channels for free for those in the US.
The venue for tomorrow night’s fight, August 18th, will be Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
A football stadium which has a capacity of 25,000. Virtually all of the tickets have gone at this stage so it should be full to capacity tomorrow night.
Lets hope it doesn’t rain.
