Deontay Wilder gatecrashed the weigh-in for Tyson Fury's fight with Francesco Pianeta where he had an aggressive confrontation with Fury's father John - and then had to be separated from his rival heavyweight.

Italy's Pianeta (35-4-1, 20 KOs), a 6-feet-5 southpaw, weighed 254½ pounds Friday at the Europa Hotel in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Alabama heavyweight Wilder posed for pictures with fans in the crowd, before shouting "bomb squad", and squaring off with Tyson Fury's father John Fury.

The Bronze Bomber then told BBC Sport the fight with the Gypsy King, 'definitely will happen'.

"Joshua's old news, the new kid in town is Fury".

A heavyweight champion of the world from America should already be a big star, in fairness, but due to the competitive sports landscape and social media culture among athletes now, Wilder still finds himself looking for that main stream recognition.

That was significantly lighter than the 19st 10lbs he weighed for his comeback win over Sefer Seferi in June.

Helmet-less DeAndre Hopkins at the center of practice brawl
Things got a bit heated Wednesday morning during a joint practice between the Houston Texans and the San Francisco 49ers . Hopkins, the two-time Pro Bowler, soon was surrounded by pushing and pulling 49ers, who brought him to the ground.

But Wilder confirmed to BBC Sport that, 'Fury has to win tomorrow night and look good, ' but also that, 'the fight definitely will happen'.

A WBC title fight against Wilder would likely take place in Las Vegas in November.

"This is class, loving the hype between Fury and Wilder", one commented.

The bout is priced very similarly to a potential Anthony Joshua fight with Fury available at EVENS and Joshua at 4/5.

Having flown to Belfast from the United States, Wilder will be ringside for the fight, before potentially defending his title against Fury - providing the Brit defeats Pianeta.

Team Klitschko had claimed that Fury weighed in below 18 stones when they fought two and a half years ago but the 6ft 9in Manchester giant says: 'Those scales were crooked.

The second fight of Fury's comeback features prominently on the undercard of Carl Frampton's against Luke Jackson.
