Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder III: Surreal face-off lasts over 5 minutes at first press conference


Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder engaged in a long face-off during the press conference ahead of their fight.

The two boxing heavyweights have locked horns twice previously with the first bout ending in a draw while Fury won the second one via a technical knockout in the seventh round. 

Wilder triggered a rematch clause soon after but the fight kept getting postponed.

It looked like Fury would face Anthony Joshua before an arbitration judge claimed that he would have to face the Bronze Bomber.

The third fight between the two is scheduled to take place on July 24 at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. 

A press conference took place on Tuesday and the two had a long face-off that lasted for over five minutes with neither looking away or even blinking. 


Wilder who came wearing sunglasses and headphones, hardly spoke during the press conference and it was Fury who was doing the talking.

The Gypsy claimed that his opponent wouldn’t last till the seventh round in their third fight.

Not too long back, Wilder sent a threatening message to Fury, claiming that he would decapitate him.

The Bronze Bomber’s only defeat came against the unbeaten 32-year-old last year. He entered the fight with high hopes but Fury was just too much for him.

The Gypsy King was aggressive in his approach and floored Wilder in the third round.
