WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder promised to knock out Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury as he visited West Yorkshire to open a restaurant.

The American was greeted by hundreds of fans outside ‘Mr T’s’ eatery in Batley on Thursday evening, taking selfies, signing autographs and screaming his ‘Bomb Squad’ catchphrase.

And the unbeaten Wilder, who has won 41 fights and drawn one, used the opportunity to send a message to his rivals.
