Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury face off ends in chaos
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury engaged in a stare down, but things erupted and got out of hand real quickly.
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury held the final press conference on Wednesday in Los Angeles, before they step into the ring on Saturday night. It was just a routine face off as Wilder and Fury stared each other down and exchanged words.
“Im gonna knock you the F–K out!” Wilder shouted at Fury. “I promise you, I promise you, I PROMISE you!”
“I want you to, I want you to.” replied Fury, smiling at Wilder.
It appeared to be the kind of hype that usually builds up prior to fight night, but within the blink of an eye; things began to take a sudden turn.
“I PROMISE you, I promise you!” Wilder continued to shout at Fury, getting closer to his face.
Fury smiled and moved his head from one side to another, as Wilder continued to shout in his face. It appeared as someone from Fury’s entourage may have touched Wilder.
“Don’t do that,” said Wilder, turning his attention to the member of Fury’s entourage. “Next time, don’t do that.”
A member of Wilder’s entourage also began to step in.
“Hey, hey hey! Get your hand off!” he shouted at the man.
Wilder and Fury then continued to exchange words, but Wilder began to lose his cool and raised his voice even louder.
“I’m gonna knock yo ass out, I promise you that!” Wilder shouted. “I promise you that. You talkin about how yo people been fighting for 200 years, my people have been fightin for 400! MY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR 400! AND STILL TILL THIS DAY!”
Wilder continued to get in Fury’s face as he shouted, and Fury continued to move his head from one side to the other. Wilder then began to point at Fury’s face, to which Fury shoved Wilder; and Wilder shoved him back. Then things got ugly.
It looked like someone from Fury’s entourage then shoved another from Wilder’s, as a brief scuffle followed at the stand.
“F–k you!” A member from Fury’s group shouted to another one from Wilder’s group. He then appeared to have spit in the man’s face. Fury was now shirtless and shouting at Wilder.
“Come on! Im ready!” Fury shouted. “I don’t give a f–k about you! Bring it Saturday night! F–k you!”
Fury then flexed for some pictures before leaving with his group.
“My people have been fightin for 400 years! And we still till this day!” Wilder shouted at the media.
