Let me explain. Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder were appearing on GMB to talk up their upcoming bout in Los Angeles on 1 December.

The Daily Telegraph says that Fury dismissed suggestions that he was the "challenger" and urged Wilder to "join him for a body spar".

Just moments after sitting down Fury said: "I'm savouring nothing, the only thing I'm savouring is smashing Deontay Wilder's teeth in". A huge elephant who is the heavyweight champion of the world and has just knocked out his mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin the other week. "So this is two champions colliding, I'm challenging for nothing and nobody".

A press conference in London, England, kicked-off proceedings and the press conference didn't disappoint.

Wilder and Fury now head to the States for TWO more press events which will include fans. If you are a fighting man, you are a fighting man.

"I'm always for it", replied Wilder, getting up as the pair were separated by promoter Frank Warren. He (Wilder) is a lemon, I'm going to squeeze him.

"I'm about to put him in the oven and make me a muffin".

"There's not a 15st man on the planet that can beat me".

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury inevitably clashed at their first official press conference in London. You already know what you've got to do. He is going to feel pain that he's never felt before.

Fury suggested Wilder's camp had only taken the fight because "I've had two fights in three years, they think I'm done".

Shelly Finkel, Wilder's co-manager, also assured the 6-feet-9 Fury that they don't expect an easy night December 1 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Fury, 30, is undefeated in 27 fights and has won both his bouts since returning to the ring earlier this year, following a 32-month absence amid a doping suspension and mental health issues.

"We spent a lot of time trying to make a fight with another man from this country (Joshua) who didn't want to fight". We believe you're the best out there. "And we have nothing but respect because your countryman [Anthony Joshua] didn't have the guts to step up like you did". "He was presented with a fortune". Think you can hit a bit? "I'm doing it for those people, I'm doing it to be the best and prove anyone can come back from anything".

"This is not cat and mouse, it's going to be a war".
