11:30 // Tyson Fury 'embarrassed' over press conference and believes no face-off should happen at the weigh-in

Wednesday's pre-fight press conference was explosive to say the least. Wilder and Fury traded words during the presser before clashing as they faced-off.

And Fury's 'quite embarrassed about what happened' and reckons there should be no face-off at the weight-in.

"I am quite embarrassed about what happened," he said.

"It was not how sportsmen should be. It got out of hand but it was two unbeaten fighters who want to win, badly.

"Deontay Wilder is obviously nervous and rattled and he felt the need to get in my face.

"There should be no face-off at the weigh-in and if it comes to fisticuffs then let's have it.

"I will not wait until Saturday if he gets in my face before."

Wilder and Fury come head-to-head before fight night tonight at the official weigh-in.

"Listen, I'm already number one," Fury said. "So I don't need to beat Deontay Wilder to prove that, because I'm not any old champion. So I can't move up any more spaces. But if he beats me, he can become number one. But if I beat him, I stay where I am.

"The belts that AJ has are only belts he picked out of the garbage tin, because they were all given to him by me - every single one of them. So them belts are of no interest to me. I already have all of them belts in me front room, all in the cabinet, displayed."

People on Twitter are saying that Tyson might have done this on purpose to get into Wilders head. With the new clean shaven look it does make him look like the same fighter who beat Klitschko in 2015.


For the first time since 2015, Wilder will think 'He's back' when he sees him.
