Tyson Fury hilariously emulated Deontay Wilder after realizing they were watching each other live on behind-the-scenes cameras during the rematch weigh-in


Tyson Fury had a genius moment as he and Deontay Wilder appeared on live backstage cameras ahead of the weigh-in for their rematch.

The heavyweights were both watching each other on the stream in the locker room before stepping out to touch the scales.

Fury imitated Wilder

Fury realized this and so began to wave and send kisses to Wilder, who was warm with his fiancée Telli Swift.

Deontay responded by scratching his face without subtlety with his middle finger.

When cameras again showed the couple, the “Gypsy King” hilariously mimicked Wilder and Swift as he moved closer to his brother Shane on the couch.
