The Bronze Bomber came face to face with Fury’s imposing father, nicknamed Big John, during the today’s weigh-in at the Europa Hotel in Belfast.
And it did not take long for the pair to become acquainted after a quick handshake turned into a shouting match, forcing security to step in and separate the pair.
Tyson himself even stepped in to cool his father off before exchanging pleasantries with WBC heavyweight champion Wilder himself.
But in an interview with iFL TV this evening, Wilder responded to the fracas with a tongue-in-cheek invite to fight the elder livewire.
“I love John, John you made my day man,” Wilder smiled.
“Really made my day. You’re probably 74 years old but you seem like you got two rounds left in you. I’ll give you all that you want.
“Come on big boy. But you make sure you’re in the front row when I knock your boy out.
“And when I knock him out, you’re more than welcome to get in the ring. I’ll give you a shot too, baby.
“I love you.”
Wilder is in Belfast as part of Showtime Sports’ commentary team and will be ringside as Fury takes on Italian Francesco Pianeta at Windsor Park tomorrow night.
The 40-0 (39 KOs) fighter is expected to climb into the ring to confront Fury, should the 29-year-old emerge unscathed from his latest test against Pianeta.
A bout between the two giant heavyweights has all but been confirmed for later this year, with the fight taking place in Las Vegas sometime between November and December.
Promoter Frank Warren claimed a deal was “99.99% complete” and could be announced during the show this weekend.
