Deontay Wilder clashes with Tyson Fury and his father at weigh

Deontay Wilder

Wilder & Fury have a fight scheduled for November - so, there's a good argument to be made that this is showmanship, but then again Fury did just publicly rip Wilder, saying he doesn't have one brain cell in his head.

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury came face to face in Belfast on Friday afternoon as excitement continues to build for their proposed fight later this year. Wilder's visit to Northern Ireland is viewed as a delayed response to Fury's in-ring challenge of 2016 when he traveled to Brooklyn to watch the American take on Artur Szpilka.

Tyson Fury who must do three things on Saturday against former world title challenger Francesco Pianeta: win, get rounds under his belt and show focus in dealing with a major occasion outdoors in front of 25,000 fans at Belfast's Windsor Park. Fury's father, John Fury, who was on the stage, had to be held back as the pair shouted at each other.

"Joshua's old news, the new kid in town is Fury". Joshua will fight Alexander Povetkin on September 22 at Wembley Stadium, and Wilder could be destined for a fight with Fury later this year.

Wilder caused a huge stir, chanting "bomb squad" and baiting Fury and his team into a huge reaction in front of the masses.

Prepare for sub-tropical Storm Ernesto
This places Ernesto west of the United Kingdom and means Ireland and Northern Ireland will be hit first when the storm makes land. There will be heavy rain and wind throughout most of the day on Sunday, with a peak temperature of around 19C.

Fury weighed in at 258lbs, some 18lbs lower than he was for his fight with Sefer Seferi in June.

But even Wilder has something riding on the outcome of this matchup.

A Las Vegas showdown in November/December has been mentioned.

The second fight of Fury's comeback features prominently on the undercard of Carl Frampton's against Luke Jackson.
