Deontay Wilder crashes Tyson Fury's weigh

Deontay Wilder crashes Tyson Fury's weigh

Should Fury come through the fight unscathed he is widely expected to fight WBC heavyweight champion Wilder, who crashed Friday's weigh-in and came close to blows with both Fury and his father, John.

As soon as he gets this guy out of the way, it's done.

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury just almost came to blows after Fury's weigh-in in Belfast. the question is - do the guys REALLY want smoke or was it all for show?

Wilder has targeted Fury since negotiations for a unification fight with Anthony Joshua ended unsuccessfully.

Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel told BBC Sport the bout will be in "November or December in NY or Las Vegas".

Tyson Fury & Deontay Wilder are hurtling towards a mouthwatering heavyweight clash.

Politico's media critic, Jack Shafer, wrote this week that the coordinated editorial response was sure to backfire. They also wrote that it is "un-American" and "dangerous" to label the media the enemy of the people.


"I'm looking very forward to watching Tyson fight and seeing what he's gonna do", Wilder told BT Sport.

Pianeta looked like he was finally starting to find the going tough in round seven, as Fury started to bust him up. "This is what it's all about, we're fighters". Joshua's old news. The new kid in town is Fury. "And now he's going to face the lone and reigning champion, the WBC champion, the king, the man, the legend, the bronze bomber and it's going to be a great fight".

The Northern Irish crowd, now soaked from the heavy rain at Windsor Park, called on Fury to end the fight with a spectacular stoppage but the British fighter continued to grind down his opponent with short combinations on the ropes.

Wilder couldn't wait until then to become the centre of attention, though.

Interestingly, bookmakers have already marked up prices for Fury-Wilder and they believe that Fury is odds on.

Wilder is coming off a 10th-round TKO of former interim champion Luis Ortiz in March, in what was his most impressive victory to date.
