Feathers ruffled after British boxer chucks chicken at US fighter in Nando’s restaurant (VIDEO)

Feathers ruffled after British boxer chucks chicken at US fighter in Nando’s restaurant (VIDEO)
A brawl between two professional boxers has unfolded in a Belfast Nando’s. A now-viral video caught fighter Deontay Wilder chasing Billy Joe Saunders after Saunders reportedly hurled a chicken at the US heavyweight boxer.

The two boxers are in Northern Ireland ahead of British boxer Tyson Fury’s heavyweight showdown with Italian Francesco Pianeta. Fury and Wilder look to face off in the ring, with Wilder telling the media to expect a clash between the two by the end of the year.

The clash no one was expecting, however, was between 28-year-old Saunders and 32-year-old Wilder. The viral video, which reportedly shows the two boxers going at it in the chicken chain store, has already been watched over 275,000 times on Twitter.

In the footage, US boxer Deontay Wilder can be seen chasing Billy Joe Saunders out of the Belfast Nando’s after the Brit reportedly threw chicken at him while open-mouthed onlookers watched on.

Prior to the bird-laden brawl, the American boxer argued with Tyson Fury’s crew at Friday’s weigh-in for the Brit’s bout with Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday.
