Jake Paul and Tommy Fury met face-to-face for the final time before their long-awaited showdown on Sunday.
The two nearly came to blows during their pre-fight press conference on Thursday after agreeing to a winner-take-all stipulation for the fight purse, and very nearly did the same again after stepping off the scales.
Both men squared up to each other and got nose-to-nose, with Fury insisting Paul was "s****ing himself" before shoving his rival in the chest.

The two head into the bout looking to maintain undefeated streaks, with Paul boasting a 6-0 professional record and Fury an 8-0 record, though this fight represents inarguably the toughest test to date for both men.
They were initially scheduled to face each other back in December 2021, but plans changed when Fury picked up an injury in training just a few days before the fight. It was then re-scheduled for August last year, but Fury had to pull out again after being denied entry to the US.
Their feud got personal after Paul leaked news that Tommy and his girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague had given birth to a baby girl earlier this month. The American later apologised, but has continued to reference the child in an attempt to antagonise his British opponent.

Fury recently revealed that his half-brother Tyson, who has been helping prepare for the fight, told him he'd disown him if he lost to Paul.
However, the Gypsy King says he's adamant Tommy will emerge victorious, and even placed a £100,000 bet on him winning by knockout this week.
"I know Tommy is going to knock him out. What is a little bit stupid is I see all these experts and professional boxers picking Jake Paul over Tommy. I'm like, 'What the hell are these guys watching?', because Tommy will absolutely deck him," Tyson told iFL TV.
