Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury’s rival entourages clashed as the press conference ended in chaotic scenes.
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury had to be separated as the pair were involved in a heated on-stage clash ahead of their WBC heavyweight title fight this weekend.
Fury labelled Wilder as a “fraud” and a “pretender” as the pair addressed the media at the final press conference on Wednesday and the British fighter ripped off his jacket and shirt after a melee ensued involving the fighters’ respective teams.
Wilder and Fury go into the fight in the early hours of Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with unbeaten records and both fighters vowed to knock each other out.
