Deontay Wilder and Billy Joe Saunders made up on Saturday night just hours on from being embroiled in ugly scenes at a Belfast Nandos restaurant.
Saunders was seen entering the vicinity of Wilder at the eatery before being confronted by the American for derogatory comments made earlier this year.

Wilder became somewhat aggressive, and not taking kindly to his actions, Saunders belted him with chicken before making a sharp exit.
Obviously being told by their respective handlers to bury the hatchet, the pair embraced at Windsor Park minutes before Tyson Fury took to the ring.
‘The Bronze Bomber’ wished Saunders well for his next contest whilst stating the altercation ‘was all good for the promotion’ of a super-fight with Fury in Las Vegas.
Jokingly, Saunders said Wilder ‘owed him thirty quid for the Nandos he didn’t get to eat’ before they shook hands again and went their separate ways.
The controversy was captured on video by several mobile phones at the scene but will only serve to cast more light on a contest between Wilder and Fury to come.
