Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder Press Conference Lives Up To Hype Factor Ahead Of Rematch

Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder Press Conference Lives Up To Hype Factor Ahead Of Rematch

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder reignited their fierce rivalry as the two heavyweight titans engaged in a heated press conference in Las Vegas.

The 31-year-old Brit superstar will challenge Wilder for the WBC championship on 22nd February at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Wilder, who will defend his title for the 11th time on Saturday, took to the stage first before the 'Gypsy King' arrived moments later.

And Fury wasted no time in squaring up to the 'Bronze Bomber' and even branded the feared puncher a "little midget."

The two boxing superstars pushed and shoved on stage before they took their seats for the final press conference for the rematch.

However, Fury hilariously took a swipe at Wilder's co-manager, Shelly Finkel, by calling him "old bald head."

Wilder and Fury traded verbal blows as the 'Bronze Bomber' argued that he was the main reason why the Brit even returned to boxing.

"Don't you ever forget who brought you back! Don't you ever forget that!" he said.

Fury showed off his showmanship by saying that Las Vegas is his home and isn't worried about his cut from his previous fight opening up.

And the former unified champ once again reiterated his vow to KO WBC kingpin Wilder in their highly-anticipated rematch.

Wilder was unfazed by the threat from Fury and called out his rival for having "pillows for fists."

The 34-year-old KO artist added: "I have to be perfect for two seconds. My doctor said he's never seen power like it."

Fury has previously argued that he was robbed of a famous victory over Wilder after their 2018 fight ended in a split-decision result.

But the 'Gypsy King' has brushed aside concerns over the judges being all American for the rematch.

Fury brilliantly mocked Wilder for being the 3rd best heavyweight in the world, which prompted the 'Bronze Bomber' to ask who was second.

And the 'Gypsy King' simply responded: "Yo momma!"
