Tyson Fury’s Trainer Claims The Gypsy King Will Fight ‘Better And Stronger’ Than Ever When He Defends His WBC Belt In Vegas, Revealing That He Will Weigh In TWENTY POUNDS Heavier

Posted by

Tyson Fury’s trainer has disclosed that the WBC world champion would weigh in 20 pounds heavier for his trilogy bout with arch-rival Deontay Wilder this Saturday, maintaining that the additional weight will pay dividends.

Sugar Hill Steward says the Gypsy King isn’t taking anything for granted in the third fight between the bitter heavyweight rivals, believing that American Wilder has improved significantly since Fury ended his five-year reign with a brutal seventh-round stoppage in their second fight in February 2020.

Their first fight in December 2018 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles finished in a dramatic draw, and they meet again on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with Fury’s camp prepared for anything Wilder may throw at them in his effort to reclaim his title.

Fury weighed in at 273 pounds for his rematch with Wilder, up 17 pounds from their first fight.

And, when asked about the 33-year-expected old’s weight heading into this fight week, Steward said:’It’s not going to be 300lbs, it’s probably going to be like 290 or something but not 300 exactly.

‘Heavier than last time by 20lbs or so, why not? The bigger the better, the heavier the stronger. He’s training with that weight, he’s built up.

‘It’s not like he’s just putting on fat, it’s building up muscles. The bigger the better, the heavier the stronger.
