Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder Get Into Heated Verbal Exchange

Wilder belted out his trademark 'BOMBZQUAD' while Fury was weighing-in before exchanging words with John Fury who had to be restrained.

Anyway, after tipping the scales at 18st 6lbs (258lbs), Fury and Wilder had a verbal stand-off.

Super-middleweight king Rocky Fielding captured the intense footage:

Meanwhile, Fury is set to make his second appearance following his lengthy hiatus from boxing.

He defeated Sefer Seferi on his return to the ring, and is now slated to fight Italian Francesco Pianeta on Saturday night.

Wilder is set to be ringside on Saturday night and is expected to fight Fury providing he beats Pianeta.

A Las Vegas showdown in November/December has been mentioned.

Ahead of a potential mega-bout, Tony Bellew has offered his thoughts on the fight and he's not liking Fury's chances at all, predicting a Wilder stoppage inside three rounds.

"He is definitely not ready for Deontay Wilder," Bellew told Sky Sports.

"Pianeta is a 6ft 5in, 17 1/2 stone southpaw. How is that preparing him - in any way, shape or form - for a 6ft 7in, possibly the biggest puncher in the whole world?"

"I don't think he'd ever beat Wilder. Styles make fights but when you're talking about Wilder, no-one knows what he is going to do - because he doesn't know either.

"I always thought David Haye would beat Fury, because of the styles. Tyson Fury is a vulnerable heavyweight, there's no two ways about that.

"He is not a big man who can absorb everything. He is vulnerable and he can be hurt, and when you are coming across guys with the speed and explosive power, like Deontay Wilder and Haye, it isn't good.

"Fury against Wilder would be over in three rounds, at the most."

How does Fury match-up against the unbeaten American?
