Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder were filmed during an awkward moment backstage for a prompted segment in New York.

Despite internet speculation that the pair were enjoying a break from their onstage beef. The video shows Wilder clearly unimpressed at being forced to share space with Fury for TV.


A picture has been doing the rounds of Fury apparently laughing with Wilder on the sofa, civility which has since been ruled out by a Frank Warren media post.

The animosity between the pair has been evident in press conferences on both sides of the Atlantic so far.

“This fight means everything to the heavyweight division. This division was once in a dark place,” said Wilder.

“A lot of people considered the division boring and not entertaining and not enough great fighters. You know, people always look back at the past and say, ‘Where are the golden days? Where has it gone?’

“And now today’s era is different… We’ve brought the sport back to life in the heavyweight division.”

Fury added: “You already know you’ve lost the fight. You’re very nervous right now because all the pressure is on you.”


The WBC title is on the line when the pair collide at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

Undercard news will follow the press tour.
