Tyson Fury resembles cruiserweight, Lawrence Okolie looks bigger
Tyson Fury’s latest picture post showed the continuation of a startling transformation by the former heavyweight king.
The 30 year-old released an image of himself alongside cruiserweight star Lawrence Okolie and Fury actually looked smaller than the undefeated Matchroom puncher.
Fury can’t be much more than three stones over the 200 pound limit and seems certain to weight a career low for his clash with Deontay Wilder.
As speculated recently, WBN believes Fury could be close to, if not under his slightest ever scaling of 245 and one half pounds.
A trim Tyson Fury is the subject of speculation the former heavyweight ruler could scale a career-low weight for his upcoming clash.
The 30 year-old battles Deontay Wilder on December 1 just over a year on from weighing almost 400 pounds.
Should this be the case, it would an astonishing achievement for the ‘Gypsy King’.
Fury scaled 258 pounds for his last fight with Francesco Pianeta in August, just 13 pounds shy of his lowest ever for Vinny Maddalone in 2012.
Rumors are rife Fury wants to come in light, although battling one of the most dangerous fighters on the planet is already incentive enough for the Briton.
Could you bet against Fury scaling a career-lowest 245 pounds at the Staples Center, certainly not? – WBN Nov, 19, 2018
Wilder remains a slight favorite to defend his WBC title on December 1, although Fury’s odds have closed since the opening show.
Punishing his body for the toughest test of his career against Wilder, Fury is hell-bent on causing an upset in Los Angeles.
Despite earning a sizable purse for Wilder, Fury knows victory could lead to an ever bigger payday in a UK rematch next year.
Add to that the fact that a two-fight saga with Anthony Joshua could follow and Fury would bank more than £50m for his next four fights – all being well.
Victory next week would set up a huge return, potentially at Wembley Stadium, where another triumph could see Fury make the national stadium his home.
Fury would then be in prime position to fully unify with Joshua in another London showdown. An outcome that would almost certainly be a two-fight offering.
If his shape wasn’t evidenced enough that Fury is intent on securing a legacy in the sport, the nullifying of Wilder at the Staples Center would surely be the clincher.
One thing is for sure, you cannot fault the man’s efforts.
