Wilder and Fury Exchange Heated Words and Shoves at Final Press Conference

I think it’s safe to say these two are ready to fight. After months of tongue in cheek barbs, we finally got to see the first real glimpse of authentic animosity when WBC title-holder Deontay Wilder went off on Tyson Fury to conclude their final press conference.

The problems started when Fury, a Gypsy, implied the perseverance of his people is something Wilder couldn’t match. The champ was offended, and listed the oppression black people have overcome and continue to fight in America. Fury then placed his hands on Wilder’s shoulders to push him back, leading to both entourages shoving each other before security separated them.


Wilder was still fired up minutes later when Radio Rahim asked an obvious question, leading to this entertaining and intense moment.
