Tyson Fury admits face-off with "c***" Deontay Wilder would have ended violently

Tyson Fury says he would have "nutted" Deontay Wilder if they were allowed to face off at their pre-fight press conference on Wednesday.

Fury is set to defend his WBC title this Saturday in a trilogy bout with the American, whom he stopped inside seven rounds when they last met back in February 2020.

The pair certainly do not see eye-to-eye, with Wilder accusing the Gypsy King of tampering with his gloves before their previous encounter.

Those claims were rubbished by a lively Fury at Wednesday's final press conference, which sparked a fiery war of words between the two ahead of Saturday's trilogy.

And on the back of the verbal warfare, the Brit's promoters Frank Warren and Bob Arum decided not to let their man conduct a face-off with Wilder.

Fury joked after the press conference that he would have head-butted his arch-nemesis had they been allowed to square up, while also insisting he succeeded in getting a reaction out of him on the night.

“And then at the end we were gonna do a face-off and he ran away. It’s like, ‘Welcome to my world, b****.’

"Frank Warren was thinking I was gonna chin him. I wouldn’t have chinned him, I would have nutted the c***!"

Speaking about the cheating allegations, Fury said: "They can't answer me. [Wilder's coach] Jay Deas was smiling under his mask. He can't answer because it's all rubbish, all lies.

"But it's all unimportant anyway, because on fight night Saturday he's gonna get found out again.

"He said he's all about legacy, well his legacy's in bits. His legacy's in pieces.

"He's been battered by me twice and he's gonna get done in again for a third time, so he hasn't got no legacy. He's living in the past.
