Wilder screamed his “Bomb Squad” catchphrase as he attempted to hijack the show, while John Fury responded by telling the WBC champion he’ll never be able to defeat him or his son.

As for the actual weigh-in, the ‘Gypsy King’ came in at a remarkable 18st 6lbs (258lbs) ahead of his second comeback fight against Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday.

Fury weighed 19st 10lbs (276lbs) for his first return bout against Sefer Seferi and has made significant progress as he continues quest to regain the heavyweight crown.

After the weigh-in, the pair met once again in the hotel lobby, leading to yet another war of words – this time without Fury’s father involved.
