Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury’s friendly behavior towards each other abruptly came to an end on Wednesday when the two heavyweights exchanged insults and pushed when they met one of the last times before they went to battle in Las Vegas.

“When I found you, you were in coke (cocaine),” Wilder shouted to Fury at their last press conference.
