FRANK WARREN was the man in the middle when Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury almost came to blows at Wednesday’s press conference. There has been some suggestion from observers that the whole thing was staged in an effort to boost ticket sales and pay-per-view buys.
Warren tells Boxing News that nothing could be further from the truth and indicated the media should share some of the blame for situations like this occurring.
BN: What do you say to people who thought the press conference scuffle was staged?
FW: They’re stupid. You mean to say we want two guys clashing heads and getting cut? Listen, nobody got a gold watch for throwing over a table, we don’t stuff like that, we don’t need it. This is a good fight on its own.
