There’s always plenty of beef and ill feeling (and showmanship and theatrics) in boxing and the heavyweight division is no different. The later rivalry? Deontay Wilder and British champ Tyson Fury. Last night Wilder defended his WBC Heavyweight world title with a fairly impressive knockout of Artur Szpilka in the ninth round. But just minutes after the fight? Fury jumped into the ring and the two had to be separated.
“Anytime, anyplace, anywhere. I’ll fight you in your back garden!” Fury screamed at Wilder, right in his face. Wilder was cool in reply, though. “You can run around like a preacher, but I will baptize you!”
“We all know Fury is just a phony,” Wilder went on. “This is just an act. I’m not scared of anybody. We’ll come to your backyard. This is just an act – you’re not a real fighter. I don’t play. This isn’t wrestling. This isn’t the WWE.” Watch it here:
