'F**k Her!': Boxing Promoter Bob Arum Rips Into Press Conference Host, Accuses Her Of Being Biased

Bob Arum has savagely roasted host Kate Abdo after the press conference between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder descended into chaos.

The legendary boxing promoter has even accused of her being biased before signing off his furious tirade by saying "f**k her".

With Wilder and Fury's trilogy bout just a matter of days away, the two heavyweights were brought together in the same room to do a pre-fight press conference.

The atmosphere was pretty calm to begin with, but it wasn't long until the brutal trash-talk began with allegations of cheating coming to fruition.

At one point during the press conference, both men just talked over each other for about two minutes straight, clearly trying to get under one another's skin with some below-the-belt verbals.

But it was during their closing statements that tensions truly boiled over.

With Fury pacing around on the stage, tempers looked destined to flare if the two were ordered to conduct a traditional face-off.

But despite the palpable tension in the air, moderator Kate Abdo still called for a staredown between the two fiery characters - much to Arum's confusion.

Clearly under the impression that a face-off wouldn't be happening, 89-year-old Arum sprung out of his chair and shouted: "No no no!"

He then voiced his frustrations with the overall press conference when speaking to reporters after, taking particular aim at host Abdo.

"They bring this woman in from the UK and she's slanting all the press conference to Wilder," Arum said.

"I don't give a damn but it's obvious that's what she was doing.

"She knew that the understanding was no face-off ... we said no face-off, and what does she say? 'Now we're going to do a face-off'.

"F*** her and f*** them. There was no face-off and we saved the fight."

While fans on social media admitted that the press conference was a tad chaotic, others thought Abdo did well given the circumstances.

ESPN reporter Mike Coppinger tweeted: "Not cool of Arum. Kate does a great job."

Abdo has since responded to Arum on Twitter.
