“If I provoked then i have to retaliate, hitting me is the worst thing anyone can ever do.

“He had his boys there but they are not serious. I had my family there and we would have done them in, there and then.

“Wilder’s brother was giving it the big’un and then my brother threw two punches and he ran away.

“This is a serious thing for us, we are not here to act. We are not here to play games or mess around.

“He’s lucky I did not take his teeth out, I could smell his breath and feel the spit hitting me when he was screaming all that rubbish.

“I want this fight to be on, I have been waiting for it since 2012. I picked him as my third comeback fight.

“Deontay Wilder is looking for any excuse to get out of this fight now he knows it is on him but I am not going to lose millions of pounds in fines for hitting him, definitely not, I am too clever for that.”
