Video: Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte’s first face-off nearly turns physical


Things got heated on Wednesday at the first face-off for Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte.

Fury and Whyte finally meet for the WBC title and Ring heavyweight titles. This is a much-anticipated all-British event. Although the bout was months in the planning, the excitement has been quiet since Whyte missed the press conference and the open training sessions earlier this week. Whyte was in attendance for the Wednesday press conference though, and following an otherwise respectful press conference, things took a turn when the two combatants finally faced off and Fury’s father, John, began yelling at Whyte’s team.

Ultimately, Fury and Whyte took control of the situation, with both men urging their respective teams to back up and preventing a melee from breaking out. After a friendly face-off, they ended the event.
