This is the astonishing moment a number of Deontay Wilder’s team were captured on camera chasing Billy Joe Saunders out of a Nando’s restaurant in Belfast after half a chicken was apparently thrown at the US boxer.

The pair are in Northern Ireland ahead of a major boxing double-header involved Tyson Fury, a friend of Saunders’s, and Carl Frampton.

According to onlookers, Wilder and Saunders were talking with fans inside the restaurant before the alleged attack.

Footage shows a number of what are believed to be Wilder’s entourage sprinting out of the restaurant after Saunders before the recording finishes.

The incident follows what was a heated weigh-in on Friday afternoon at the Europa Hotel.

Fury and Wilder had scuffled in a packed hotel lobby after the Gypsy King weighed in on the eve of his second comeback fight against Francesco Pianeta.

Wilder had flown into Belfast from the US in time to see his potential future opponent’s weigh-in.

Both boxers had to be held back by minders as a ‘pantomime punch-up’ erupted in the hotel lobby. 

Wilder will be commentating for BT Sport on Saturday night during Fury’s fight at Windsor Park against Pianeta.
