Wilder and Fury clashed in Los Angeles for the first time since their heavyweight world title bout was officially confirmed for February 22.

They exchanged words during a heated presser with the WBC title holder pulling no punches in his assessment of his opponent's lineal crown, branding it as "make believe and fake".

Speaking at the press conference, the undefeated American said: "He goes around talking he has the lineal title, something that is make believe and fake. He has no belt except the one that holds his pants up now. That's the only thing he has.

"Come February 22, that lineal b***t, it ends. It ends with him.

"All that talk before, it dies, it's dead. This is a new beginning this is unfinished business that I will finish. I will do exactly what I said I would do, I will knock him out.

"I'm the lion, the king of the jungle and come February 22, I'm going to rip his head off his body.

"I'm going to knock you through those ropes so you can really feel a WWE moment in real life."

Fury became lineal champion after beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. He's 4-0-1 since returning to the sport which includes back-to-back victories over Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin following his controversial draw with Wilder in December 2018.
