Tyson Fury Ends Up Topless After Heated Face Off Ends With Pushing

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder ended the last press conference before the two face in the ring on Saturday night in typical fashion with a heated scuffle on stage following the face off.

Throughout the build up to Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's champion vs champion fight there has been plenty of needle between the undefeated Brit and the undefeated American.

They kicked off the build up with a press tour earlier in the year in which the last act saw the Bronze Bomber try and attack the Gypsy King after the face off led to some jostling and more smack talk from Fury.

Now the pair have been through their training camps and are only a couple of days away from facing each other for the WBC and lineal heavyweight titles.

At the final press conference the two exchanged verbal shots during a Q&A but it never got too heated with the pair more focusing on hyping themselves up.

Then came the face off and all seemed to be going well for a while until it all kicked off and there was a scuffle at the back of the stage. For some reason Fury ended up taking off his shirt:

Speaking to BBC 5 Live's Mike Costello, Fury said, "I took my shirt off to get involved and frightened them all away.

"Everyone thinks the rivalry is fake but they can guess again as it nearly went off again.

"Wilder thought he needed to spit in my face or whatever he was doing, shouting. He feels pressured, you can see the pressure he is under out there."

During the press conference the 30 year old from Manchester had spoken about how he was going to make Wilder famous for losing to him and give him the big name he needed.

The older American, who won Bronze at the Beijing Olympics, claimed that Fury had only made it big in a small country.

BBC's Steve Bunce clearly felt Wilder had been affected by all the shenanigans and talk saying, "We've seen it before but I'm telling you now, you've never seen it with that much edge and nastiness.

"Let's get this straight, Wilder lost it."

It will certainly be an interesting fight on Saturday night. Who do you think will win?
