Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have renewed their verbal sparring as their December 1 showdown in Los Angeles edges ever closer.
Fury is looking to regain his place on top of the heavyweight division when he challenges for Wilder’s coveted WBC world title at the Staples Center.
In the build-up to the eagerly-anticipated encounter, the two fighters came together for a face-off.
During the war of words, Fury takes aim at Wilder’s ‘Bronze Bomber’ persona and warns him that his time as world champion is coming to an end.
‘You’re already beaten,’ the Gypsy King says. ‘Anyone who has to have an alter ego and not be themselves in there, can’t beat me.
He adds: ‘You’re looking at a man who stands in the light, I can’t be beaten by any alter ego. I can’t be beat. I’ve already beaten you.
‘I came here today thinking me and you were similar but sitting around this table I know that me and you are so worlds apart.
‘I look to nothing to come inside me and win fights, only the power of God above – that’s it. I don’t get the power from anything else, I don’t need a second person to come and help me.

‘I’ve already beaten people like you many, many times. I bump into people like you every single day of my life and I give them the same answer.’
When Wilder responds by singing, ‘There’s only one Bronze Bomber,’ Fury continues: ‘It doesn’t matter. I’ll say to you,
“Ask and you shall receive”. I can see the alter ego coming through. You and your alter ego are a pack of bums!’
Earlier Wilder had vowed to dash Fury’s dreams of becoming a two-time heavyweight champion, insisting only retirement will put an end to his own reign.
‘Your time may come but this is not your time,’ Wilder says. ‘You may think it’s your time, you may feel it’s your time but this is not your time Tyson, this is my time and it will forever be my time until I retire. I’m sorry to tell you that.’
