While Usyk appeared friendly to Fury’s son, the same cannot be said for his attitude toward the Gypsy King, which showed at the weigh-ins.

Tempers flared after both fighters stepped off the scales before the heavyweights squared off and butted heads on stage.

A farce ensued, with Fury appearing to push Usyk away from him before both were dragged away by their respective teams.

Fury then launched a furious tirade at the DAZN reporter, shouting: “I’m coming for his heart. Damn his belts, I’m going for his fucking heart.

“I’ll spark him. Damn his whole team, hell lot of them! Everyone can have it if they want. Damn the houses!’

The Gypsy King was also asked how he felt after the face-off, to which he replied: ‘I’m ready to rock and roll tonight, I’m gonna knock this little damn spark out.’
