Watch: Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder Weigh In For Saturday Trilogy Bout
Tyson Fury is going to come in at least 20 pounds “heavier than last time.”
That’s at least what Fury’s coach, SugarHill Steward, and the “Gypsy King” Fury are saying.
Fury and Deontay Wilder will be looking to tip the scales on Friday at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT in Las Vegas. This is the last time the two will be meeting up publicly ahead of their WBC heavyweight championship Saturday night.
“It’s not going to be 300 pounds, it’s probably going to be like 290 or something but not 300 exactly,” Steward told Vegas Insider.
In their rematch in February, Wilder came in at 231 pounds while Fury tipped the scale at 273 pounds.
That right hand from Wilder….

In boxing, those who weigh over 200 pounds are considered heavyweights. There’s no weight limit for the heavyweight division.
On Wednesday, the final press conference ended in a heated exchange after Wilder doubled down on his claims that Fury cheated in their rematch while Fury called Wilder weak.
The fight will be aired on FIGHT SPORTS MAX in over 50 countries. It is available on pay-per-view in the U.S.
