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

Deontay Wilder Confronts Tyson Fury In Belfast, Real Or Fake?

Deontay Wilder made quite an entrance as he arrived in Northern Ireland Friday, gate-crashing Tyson Fury's weigh-in and clashing with his father, John.

The seed has well and truly been planted, ladies and gentlemen.

Tyson Fury is a 1/200 favourite to beat Pianeta on Saturday night, and victory should lead to the much-anticipated clash with Wilder later in the year.

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.

Fury weighed in at 18st 6lbs (258 pounds) ahead of only his second fight in nearly three years and is over a stone lighter than he was in June, ahead of his clash with Sefer Seferi. Inevitably, the highly volatile Tyson Fury reacted to being upstaged at his presser. Paddy Barnes' fight against WBC flyweight champion Cristofer Rosales will open proceedings, followed by Fury.

It's a mystery to me how Deontay Wilder hasn't become more famous outside the ring. Joshua's old news. The new kid in town is Fury.

Following the weigh-ins, Fury and Wilder engaged in a shouting match in the hotel lobby.

"Bomb Squad" is a catchphrase associated with Wilder, and is derived from his "Bronze Bomber" nickname. "I'm coming to knock you out, plain and simple".

Wilder has targeted Fury since negotiations for a unification fight with IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua ended unsuccessfully.

A Las Vegas showdown in November/December has been mentioned. Local fighter Carl Frampton weighed in at 126lbs for his main event world featherweight title bout with Luke Jackson.
