Deontay Wilder's attempt to rattle Tyson Fury scared the life out of Jimmy Lennon Jr


Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder is just weeks away, folks.

The hype surrounding the titanic rematch is beginning to build as two of the sports biggest hitters gear up for the fight of their lives.

Wilder and Fury will finally come to blows on February 22 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as they bid to settle the score following their controversial bout in 2018.

As that opening bell approaches, each man will be doing his utmost to get the psychological edge over his opponent but Wilder will have to do a little better than he did in their first press conference yesterday.

'The Bronze Bomber' snuck up on Fury while he had his back turned, screaming 'Bomb Squad' in an attempt to rattle the Brit.

Unfortunately, for Wilder, Fury didn't even flinch, but legendary ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr nearly jumped right out of his skin.

You can see the brilliant moment in the video below:

Fury didn't even bat an eye.

Watching Wilder sheepishly return to his seat would have been massively satisfying for Fury and his fans.

Unsurprisingly, the clip went viral as Lennon's reaction tickled the funny bone of boxing fans around the globe.

However, Wilder wasn't about to go quietly for the rest of the presser, embarking on a staggering seven-minute speech for the gathered members of the press.

It was quite a rant, too, with Wilder poking fun at Fury's 'Lineal Title' claim.

"He goes around talking he has the lineal title, something that is make-believe and fake," he said.

"He has no belt except the one that holds his pants up now. That's the only thing he has.

"Come February 22, that lineal b***t, it ends. It ends with him."

Fury will be hoping that his slightly longer reach will give him an advantage but will know all too well how dangerous Wilder's raw power can be.

It's truly impossible to call at this point and promises to be one of the biggest fights of the century.

Sin City is calling - it's going to be quite a night.
