Tyson Fury Will Be His ‘Biggest’ For The ‘Biggest Crowd’ Vs Dillian Whyte
Tyson Fury said he’s going into the Dillian Whyte fight at his heaviest weight yet.
The undefeated WBC heavyweight champion weighed his heaviest at 273 pounds for his rematch against Deontay Wilder in February 2020, which was a 16.5-pound difference from their first fight, which ended in a debatable split draw in September 2018.
For their trilogy fight, Fury came in at a career-high of 277 pounds, which he won by 11th round knockout on October 9.
“I’m gonna try and come in at me heaviest weight of all time,” Fury said at a recent press conference.
“For the biggest fight and the biggest crowd, you’re gonna see the biggest Tyson Fury. I’m gonna come in like a man mountain.”
The 6-foot-4 Whyte weighed about 247 pounds for his rematch against Alexander Povetkin in March 2021. Whyte scored a fourth-round technical knockout.
The heaviest Whyte came in was 271 pounds in December 2019 against Mariusz Wach. He went the distance for a 10-round unanimous decision win.
Russian Nikolai Valuev holds the record for heaviest heavyweight champion in boxing history. The 7-foot boxer weighed 324 pounds when he defeated John Ruiz via unanimous decision for the WBA world title in December 2005.
