Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury: Weigh-in ahead of heavyweight fight

All square! Champ Wilder and plucky Fury scored a draw in heavyweight title fight

All square! Champ Wilder and plucky Fury scored a draw in heavyweight title fight

The two undefeated heavyweights will come face-to-face in the ring in LA's Staples Center to claim the WBC heavyweight belt.

Peter Oboh who is a big fan of Joshua's fan said, "for the first time, I must have to disagree with Anthony Joshua for his lack of interest in the fight between Wilder and Fury".

From cutting blistering promos on one another to signature poses and catchphrases, Wilder and Fury have brought almost every major pro wrestling element into their high-profile feud for the WBC Heavyweight Championship.

But Wilder, who tipped the scales at 15st 2lb, kept his cool as Fury continued to throw a barrage of abuse in his direction.

While Wilder, who was wearing a trademark mask, didn't react to Fury's barbed tongue, Fury sensed a bit of fear from the American.

But Wilder insists his calm approach to the weigh-in will be stripped away when it comes to fight time on Saturday. "Actions speak louder than words so come tomorrow I get to release everything that is inside of me", Wilder said.

Clearly seeing the fight as just another hurdle to negotiate in his bid to face Anthony Joshua to become undisputed champion, Wilder added: "It's definitely the most important [fight of his career] but not the most hard".

"My opponent last fight was way tougher than him". It's definitely the most important fight of my career, but it's not the most hard.

"This is just another step to where I want to go".
