Tony Bellew and Deontay Wilder were involved in a heated war of words at the weigh-in for Saturday’s heavyweight showdown between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko.
The pair are both in London to watch Joshua’s encounter against Klitschko in front of 90,000 people at Wembley Stadium.
Bellew was being interviewed about the fight on Friday, when Wilder and his entourage interrupted. The two have been in talks over facing each other for Wilder’s WBC world title.

Wilder said: “You know what separates me from all of the heavyweights? How I knock a ******** out. Not only have I broke sockets, not only have I broke bones but I have made them seize on the ground."

Bellew fired back: “I don’t care what the hell you’ve done. You’re just a man with two arms, two legs. My boxing brain is far better than yours.”
British fighter Bellew moved up to the heavyweight division last month and emerged victorious against former world champion David Haye.
