A scuffle between Fabio Wardley and David Adeleye materialises after the press conference for the Fury vs Ngannou match.

It appeared that a member of Wardley’s entourage was taunting Adeleye, this resulted in Adeleye verbally retaliating.

In the background, Wardley is having an interview with Radio Rahim, and slowly walks towards Adeleye.

Adeleye aggressively pushes Wardley, Wardley removes his cap and glasses before attempting to charge Adeleye, stopped by security and his entourage.

Wardley then attempts to charge Adeleye again, but gets caught with a left-hook in the process, and is dropped.

Some have suggested that Wardley was already off-balance, having tripped over a barrier.

The Scuffle seizes at this point, with both boxers separated from each other.

Adeleye has a cut near his left eye, I’m not sure how the cut was caused at the time of writing this article.

Needless to say, the cut could cause the fight to be postponed, depending on how serious it is.

Finally, I think this shows a lack of professionalism on the part of both boxers, but I place more blame on Adeleye, as he had initiated the Scuffle between the two.
