Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury clash at presser ahead of fight

Things certainly heated up at the pre fight press conference ahead of Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury II - And neither man held back

This Saturday Deontay Wilder (42-0-1) and Tyson Fury (29-0-1) will collide once more. Their first bout was a memorable one, as Fury was ahead on the judges scorecards initially. However Wilder scored two knockdowns later in the fight that evened the score, one of those knockdowns was devastating, and would have finished lesser men. Now Wilder and Fury will clash again, but they didn’t wait until getting into the boxing ring before getting physical.

At the pre fight press conference, things got heated and while in each others faces things got heated  between the two, see the video above.

“He better not say he got me to big-time boxing,” Wilder told media ahead of the fight. “I almost slapped him. Because if anybody brought anybody to big-time boxing, it was me. Don’t ever forget. When I found you, you were strung out on coke. You was like a big house and contemplating about killing yourself. So don’t you ever forget who brought you to big-time boxing.

“I drug you back. I provided food and put food on your table for your family to eat. And I’m doing it for a second time. Don’t you ever forget that.”


Fury responded back in turn, explaining that his opponent should be more respectful. This as the Englishman gave Wilder his biggest payday to date. He then went on to berate Wilder, saying he will break him on Saturday.

“I look at Wilder and I don’t see a tough fight. I see a long-legged pussy that I’m going to break in. A big 6ft 7in virgin that ain’t been rodded before,” Fury said to media this week. “I’m going to bend him over and scuttle him backwards nice and slowly. I will break him in. I am going to give him his first loss. That’s what I’m going to do to Deontay Wilder.

“The Gypsy King is going to dethrone him, rip his heart out and feed it to him. It’s Las Vegas. I want to put on a show. Wilder is not going to beat me. His power is not going to hurt me. I want a knockout this time. I’d prefer to go down swinging than outbox him and not get the decision.”

Who wins the rematch on Saturday?
