Fury Says He Wants Wilder To Knock Him Out As Press Conference Descends In Chaos

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's last press conference before their Saturday night fight ended in Chaos yesterday.

Fury and Wilder are set to go toe-for-toe for the WBC heavyweight title at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles at the weekend.

And at their final presser yesterday the pair had to be separated as the Gypsy King removed the upper-half of his suit, while both sides camp scuffled on stage.

Fury opened the press conference claiming he has waited for this fight since defeating Wladimir Klitschko three years ago.

"It is my anniversary today, I would like everyone to sing happy anniversary to me," the 30-year-old joked.

"three-years since I went to Germany and kicked Wladimir Klitschko's ass all over Dusseldorf, and I'm only three days away from doing the same to the Bronze Bomber.

"I stand here today the lineal world heavyweight champion of the world and on Saturday I'll be WBC world heavyweight champions of the world also.

"We've had a fantastic training camp, I put nine weeks in on Saturday. I don't remember a training camp going better than this ones gone, I'm injury free, sparring went fantastic, no complaints, no arguments, no marks on this beautiful face, I'm just here do a job and enjoy myself.

"And I hope boxing fans around the world are going to enjoy this fight as much I am, because I've been looking forward to this fight since 2011, and I've been counting the days down since until I get this guy into the ring.

"On Saturday night I'm going to punch his face right in for him, and he can't run around the ring."

He added: "Wilder is getting knocked out by me on Saturday night... but apart from that thank you all very much for coming and see you all later, bye"

Meanwhile, Wilder claimed that this is his time saying the Gypsy King has already had his peak.

"This is the time, this is my time, Fury had his time," the Bomber said. "When he beat Klitschko, that was his time, that was his window to do whatever the hell he had to do.

"But now it's my time, I've sat patiently waiting, I've looked up on all these fighters in my division, I've seen them do their thing, I've seen them make it to the top, I've said not one thing."

"I will knock Tyson Fury out. They say I'm the puncher and he's the boxer, but the same thing was said when I beat (Bermane) Stiverne. I'm going to show you how well I can box. He will go down."

However, when the pair went head-to-head that's when the trouble started, Wilder claimed he was going knock Fury out, to which the Englishman responded, 'I want you to, I want you to', and as more words were exchanged the Gypsy King clearly hit a nerve with the Bomber.

The fighters started pushing each other before the pairs camps started brawling on stage resulting in Fury ripped the top half of his suit off, although by this point the fighters were at opposite ends of the room.

Fury (27-0) is outsider at 6/4 to win the fight, while Wilder, who has won all 40 of his professional fights (39 via knockout), is 8/13 to beat the Briton.
