Deontay Wilder Hitting The Weights Hard For Tyson Fury Bout
Deontay Wilder is packing on muscles prior to his trilogy showdown against WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Wilder has reportedly been hitting the weights on a regular basis since his fight against Fury was put off after the WBC champ contracted the coronavirus. The heavyweights will clash on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The Bronze Bomber’s weights in the last six fights were:
- 231 – Tyson Fury
- 219 1/2 – Luis Ortiz
- 223 1/2 – Dominic Breazeale
- 212 1/2 – Tyson Fury
- 214 3/4 – Luis Ortiz
- 220 3/4 – Bermane Stiverne
On the other hand, Tyson’s younger brother, Tommy Fury, feels that the WBC champion will overwhelm Wilder every time they clash.
“Tyson has got Wilder’s number. He’s already done him in twice,” Tommy said in a recent interview after he won against Anthony Taylor in his US debut. “It’s going to be the same story come October 9th. Tyson is like myself.”
Tommy claimed that Tyson is looking as good as ever in training camp.
“He’s cool, calm, relaxed, and can’t wait to get in there,” he added. “Wilder is what he is. He’s a devastating puncher. Tyson knows that. Once you’ve got somebody’s number, it’s very hard to get rid of it, as we all know.”
