Tyson Fury Savages Mascot At Training Camp Ahead Of Deontay Wilder Fight


The build-up to the heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, scheduled for December 1, has been getting so heated that even animals have been getting caught up in the crossfire.

The American WBC champion caused a stir when he positively flattened a big cat with a right straight live on Spanish-language television and now his lineal champion foe has followed up in the act.

Fury has been in Big Bear, California, preparing for the title fight, due to be held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, and took some time off from his training regime to film a piece with broadcaster BT Sport.

Someone decides to have the former unified world champion on though, dressing up as another big cat of some sort and sneaking up behind him while he speaks to the camera. Cat-like with his own reactions, Fury hears what’s coming and responds by squaring up to the mascot, who gets a kick for his troubles.

Judging by the way he was left bent over afterwards, that one hurt. That’s what you get for trying to spook heavyweight boxers, I suppose.

The fight will be a unique and impactful one for the newly re-invigorated heavyweight division, with both fighters coming into the bout undefeated in their combined 67 fights.

To use that old adage, somebody’s ‘0’ has got to go, on the night, with Fury on the comeback trail following his well-documented troubles outside of the sport and Wilder after another piece of the puzzle on his path towards a unification fight with Anthony Joshua.
