Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder had to be pulled apart during a chaotic press conference which saw the British heavyweight invite his American foe to 'body spar' on the spot.
The pair came face to face today ahead of their 1 December Las Angeles bout and immediately resumed a dispute that has been gradually escalating for the past twelve months. Eventually, Fury repeatedly invited Wilder to throw a shot: "Let me feel that power boy." In response, Wilder pushed Fury and the pair were separated by security.

In response to Fury's invitation to 'have a spar', the WBC heavyweight laughed and reminded him that he would have his chance later this year.
It has started. This is no game at this point. This is real. We are at the press conference, this is a real fight. We are announcing this fight on.
