“They carry this lady in from the UK and he or she’s slanting all of the press convention to Wilder,” Arum mentioned.
“I don’t give a rattling however it’s apparent that’s what she was doing.
“She knew that the understanding was no face-off … we mentioned no face-off, and what does she say? ‘Now we’re going to do a face-off’.
“F*** her and f*** them. There was no face-off and we saved the combat.”
Veteran boxing journalist Dan Rafael tweeted: “Presser was going effectively and now it has degenerated into a large number.”
