Deontay Wilder was on hand the weigh-in on Friday as Tyson Fury scaled 18st 6lbs for his second comeback fight against Francesco Pianeta.
Fury, 30, was going through the weight proceedings at the Europa Hotel in Belfast as Wilder posed for pictures with fans and hollered out his ‘Bomb Squad’ catchphrase.
Not taking too kindly to the American’s noise, Fury’s father John – on stage with his son – told Wilder to ‘shut up’ on many occasions as things threatened to get ugly.
Wilder was standing beside co-manager Shelly Finkel as both are in town to seal a deal with Fury for a Pay-Per-View clash in the United States later this year.
More news to follow from Friday’s weigh-in.
