New, 24 comments

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are putting the finishing touches on selling Saturday’s rematch.

With just a few days remaining before Saturday night’s pay-per-view main event rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, the two heavyweight stars are leaving no stone unturned in promoting and selling the event, and went to a tried-and-true formula at today’s final press conference.

WBC heavyweight titleholder Wilder (42-0-1, 40 KO) and challenger Fury (29-0-1, 20 KO) gave us the old fashioned shoving match, which you can see in full form in the video up top.

In another angle from Top Rank, Fury is heard saying, “Look at him, he’s like a featherweight when I pushed him across the room! Ya little bitch!”

Wilder was heard to say, “When your eyes are in the back of your head and your veins are pushing out of your neck, we’ll see!”

In the video up top, Wilder says, “I’m gonna stand over your body like a murder scene!”

Fury shouted, “I’m the dominant heavyweight, not you! I beat Wladimir Klitschko! You beat nobody!”

It’s a good show. Believe it or not, this stuff really does work to sell a fight.
