BETTING SPECIAL: GET 30/1 ON FURY OR 50/1 ON WILDER FOR HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING CLASH
And Fury’s trainer SugarHill Steward says Fury could weigh in 20lbs heavier than he did in the victorious rematch, when he bullied and stopped Wilder in seven rounds in February, 2020.
Steward said: “It’s not going to be 300 pounds, it’s probably going to be like 290 or something but not 300 exactly.
“Heavier than last time by 20 pounds 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.”
