MORNING BOXING FANS
Well last night’s press conference between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury was more pantomime than pay-per-view.
The presser started off with a face-off, where Fury labelled the Bronze Bomber as a “midget”, with the Gypsy King then being shoved across the stage.
After things calmed down, the duo once again reiterated they will each win by knockout.
While they also stated that they will both be coming into Saturday’s fight heavy.
Prior to the presser, promoter Bob Arum declared WBC mandatory Dillian Whyte WILL face the winner of the weekend’s clash after their trilogy fight.
He said: “Whyte is a good fighter. He'll get his shot down the road.
“Whyte, if he keeps fighting and winning, should be next after the trilogy occurs. That would be appropriate.
“Everybody knows there is a three-fight deal and the loser may pull the plug. But Whyte should be next.”
Elsewhere, talks between Anthony Joshua and IBF mandatory Kubrat Pulev are still being discussed.
A fight between the two is planned for the summer, with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to potentially host the event.
