Deontay Wilder Goes For Tyson Fury In Latest Press Conference

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury were never going to be quiet in the build up to their fight but after tonight it's clear that it's advantage Fury as the Bronze Bomber couldn't take anymore of what the Brit had to say.

Everyone wanted Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua to be facing each other but negotiations could never get sorted and that meant that we missed out on the world titles being unified.

Instead the Bronze Bomber will take on Tyson Fury on December 1st. With Fury being the lineal champion it's still two unbeaten champions facing each other in one of the most hotly anticipated fights in the heavyweight division in recent years.

The pair have completely different boxing styles, which will make for a very interesting fight, but when it comes to their out of ring performances the two couldn't be much more similar.

They're both known for their arrogant, brash and confrontational style on the mic and in fighting talk.

In the last few days they've been part of a media tour to advertise the fight with a couple of face offs but on Wednesday night they got the closest they've been with Wilder almost launching himself at the Gypsy King:

At the latest press conference Wilder was calmly sat down as Fury refused to take a seat and looked full of nervous energy as he wandered around the stage, circling his future opponent and occasionally confronting him.

But the Gypsy King was actually in control of the situation and was slowly winding up the American more and more until he once again called Wilder a 'dosser,' leading to the WBC heavyweight champion to go for the former WBA (Super), IBF and WBO champion.

It's thought that it could be difficult for AJ to face the winner of this fight as soon as he'd like with both men reportedly having rematch clauses in the contract.

It could be a while then until we see the heavyweight titles unified but for now we're in for an exciting couple of months before Wilder and Fury get it on, we can't wait to see how it unfolds.
