Boxing fans are backing Tyson Fury after clip of Deontay Wilder in training emerges

Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury - Los Angeles Press Conference

The talking is almost over and the WBC heavyweight title fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is nearly here.

The pair clashed during their press conference on Thursday to add even more interest to the highly-anticipated bout.

Fury called Wilder a “fraud” and a “pretender” in front of the media before the Brit ripped off his jacket and shirt after a melee between the fighters’ respective teams.

According to the bookmakers, Wilder is the slight favourite to beat Fury when the pair go head-to-head in the early hours of Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Despite that, Fury is adamant that he will be knocking Wilder out come fight night.

"I don't remember a training camp going any better than this one has gone," Fury said, per Sky Sports.

"I am injury free. Sparring went fantastic - no complaints, no arguments, no marks on this beautiful face.

"On Saturday I'm going to punch (Wilder's) face in for him. I've heard a lot of people say 'Wilder by knockout or Fury on points', but I'm telling you now, Wilder's going to get knocked out by me."

And there are certainly signs of encouragement in the build-up to the fight.

One of those encouraging signs has actually come in a clip of Wilder sparring.

During the video, Wilder goes for a big right hand on his trainer, misses and totally loses his balance.


His feet then cross over and he almost trips himself up.


Take a look:

It’s something that boxing fans have been talking about and believe that it’s an area that could get him in big trouble against Fury.

Despite his power, Wilder isn’t technically the best boxer and his poor footwork could cost him dearly in the ring.

Despite many fans doubting his ability, Wilder believes this is his career-defining moment.

"This is a moment I've been waiting for my entire career; this is my time," Wilder said.

"Fury had his - when he beat Klitschko that was his window to do whatever he had to do. How he took upon his responsibilities as a champion was up to him. But now it's my time. I've sat patiently, waiting.

"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."
