Billy Joe Saunders reportedly threw a piece of chicken at Deontay Wilder at a Nandos in Belfast, Ireland, when the two boxers dined out with their respective entourages on Friday night.

WBO middleweight champion Saunders and Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion, are in the Irish city to witness latter’s rival Tyson Fury trade punches with Francesco Pianeta on Saturday night.

Saunders showed off his cheeky side by throwing chicken at Wilder before rushing his way out of the eatery. Wilder and his entourage then tried to chase Saunders… but one of them comically slipped.

Earlier in the day, American Wilder, who is expected to lock horns with Fury in Las Vegas in November, gatecrashed the latter’s weigh-in, much to the dismay of the Brit’s father-cum-trainer John (see video below).

Meanwhile, Fury showed off his trimmed stature as he weighed in at 258 pounds – 18 pounds lighter than his previous bout and the lightest he’s fought since 2014. Italian Pianeta tipped the scales at 254½ for the 10-round contest.
