 The bad blood between the current top heavyweight boxers, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, exploded during the face-off and final press conference ahead of their blockbuster rematch on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.Showing love and respect mostly during their previous press conferences, the tide was quick to change for the prideful gentlemen as the two engaged in a verbal altercation right after they stepped on the stage that later led to shoving.The looks on their eyes and the confidence they wear are telling their bad intentions inside the ring to finally settle their years\’ long rivalry.

Settled to begin the supposed press conference, Fury, who is 29-20-0-1, claimed that his fight with Wilder back in 2018 made the Olympic bronze medallist to go in fame.“I give him his biggest payday of his whole life, got him a big contract with Showtime, I brought him to the biggest stage in the world, Las Vegas… I put million on his account,” the Gypsy King Fury boasted.“You owe me everything. I brought you to this level. Welcome to big-time boxing,” he added. But Wilder, on the other hand, who is 42-41-0-1 can only laugh out loud on Fury’s claim.“When I knocked you out, go to stand-up comedy, bro. You got a career in there,” Wilder responded, who will be defending his WBC heavyweight title for the 11th time.“It\’s an unfinished business. We will just pick up where we left of.”Wilder was able to knock down Fury twice in 2018 but the British boxer survived the American’s superb right-hand power and eventually putting Wilder on the brink. The controversial split draw ignited the rematch despite having them in different boxing promotions.

The MMA fighter and former UFC heavyweight champion said that AJ camp sabotaged him by letting him go early in the arena.

“We both fought at 3am. What I think, something that’s happened is that they get me to the arena very early. Like my pickup time was 10.30pm to go to the arena. And then when we get to the arena, they tell us that we are scheduled around 1.45am. right?” Ngannou blurted.

He believed that he came exhausted, which resulted in his humiliating defeat.
