Deontay Wilder crashes Tyson Fury's weigh-in, clashes with John Fury

The American, 32, argued with Fury's team at Friday's weigh-in for the Englishman's bout with Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday.

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

"The champion is here and he's going to take out Tyson Fury".

Speaking post-fight, Fury explained that he "needed the rounds" to get back to the desirable level he wishes to fight at.

According to sources reporting to FightNights.com, Fury and Wilder have agreed in principle for a Showtime-televised heavyweight championship fight that could take place in either November or December at an undisclosed location in Las Vegas. "Fury has to do what he needs to tomorrow so that when we come to fight, that's how much excitement and aggression there will be".

In the world of heavyweight boxing, it's a insane time right now.


"I have no words for Joshua, it's exclusively on Fury", Wilder told BBC Sport.

Despite chasing Saunders out of the chicken restaurant, Wilder also seemed jovial about the situation upon meeting the middleweight fighter backstage.

Following up on September's blockbuster rematch between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, Fury's Stateside battle will be a feature event on our new pay-per-view channel, BT Sport Box Office HD, which will be available on BT TV, Sky and Virgin platforms.

Wilder will be hoping that Fury can come through to secure a large payday. "Ours is the biggest fight".

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. It was a deal that was seemingly put together quickly after negotiations for Wilder to face Anthony Joshua fell apart.
