Fury realised this and so began waving and blowing kisses to Wilder, who was cosied up to his fiance Telli Swift.

Deontay replied by unsubtly scratching his face with his middle finger.

When the cameras once again showed the pair, the ‘Gypsy King’ hilariously imitated Wilder and Swift by cosying up to his brother Shane on the sofa.
