Photos: Wilder, Fury Explode at Los Angeles Press Conference

Three days of a boisterous, tension-fueled international press tour came to a close on Wednesday in downtown Los Angeles when heavyweight giants Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury had to be separated by security after the verbal sparring threatened to turn physical in front of a large contingent of both Wilder and Fury supporters.

In the closing moments of the third-straight press conference ahead of their December 1 showdown for the WBC Heavyweight World Championship at STAPLES Center, emotions appeared to boil over as both fighters had to be held back.

With the whirlwind press tour in the rear-view mirror, the fighters now have 58 days to prepare for the biggest heavyweight fight on U.S. soil since Lennox Lewis KO’d Mike Tyson in June 2002. Wilder vs. Fury is the latest major heavyweight event to take place in the Southland, expanding an already deep history of heavyweight boxing featuring Hall of Famers Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Lennox Lewis and Vitali Klitschko, the last of whom faced off at Staples Center in 2003, with Klitschko also stopping Chris Arreola at Staples Center in 2009.

[QUOTE=sammybee;19163326]Wilder's shoe is very high. The height difference will show in the ring.[/QUOTE] They were both wearing dress shoes yesterday and looked the same height.

[QUOTE=_Rexy_;19162939]yeah, ever since this tour started I've been questioning if Fury is really 6'9 (since I doubt Wilder would claim he's shorter than he is)[/QUOTE] Wilder's shoe is very high. The height difference will show in the ring.
