Scenes turned sour in the face-off!
Scenes turned sour in the face-off!

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury were pulled apart during their final press conference as tempers flared ahead of their eagerly anticipated heavyweight bout, which is now only three days away.

The duo, in a tense face-off, roared expletives at each other, before Fury put his hand on Wilder's arm, leading to a reaction from the American, as the pair were forced apart by their respective camps.

In the subsequent melee Fury stripped off his jacket and shirt as he challenged his opponent to a fight there and then.

Earlier in the press conference, challenger Fury revealed that he's planning to knock out Wilder en-route to winning the WBC heavyweight title. 

"I've been looking forward to this fight since 2011, counting down the days since and on Saturday night I'm going to punch his face right in.

"I've heard a lot of people say 'Wilder by knockout or Fury on points', but I'm telling you now, Wilder's going to get knocked out by me on Saturday night."

However, Wilder was having none of it, stating he is determined to swat away the critics and outbox Fury this weekend.

"I'm going to show you how well I can box, how well I can dominate, I'm going to beat his ass and then knock him out. 

"Over and over I have proved this, I don't play this...this is no game for me, the clock is ticking. This is a young man's game... it's my time - Fury had his time, when he beat Klitschko that was his time."
