Tyson Fury weighs lightest since Wladimir Klitschko for Otto Wallin
Lineal world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury weighed in his lightest since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany back in 2015.
‘The Gypsy King’ cut a slimmer figure at the midweek workout inside the MGM Grand amid speculation he’d come in light.
And so it proved to be the case as Fury scaled just over 254 pounds for his battle with Otto Wallin.
Barring the Klitschko fight, Fury hasn’t weighed 254 since making his US debut at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Fury squared off against Steve Cunningham two years prior to his defining night in Dusseldorf.
Famously, the 30 year-old was dropped by the ex-cruiserweight champion hard in the second round. Fury recovered to record a stoppage in the seventh.
Ballooning in weight after dealing with depression after the Klitschko fight, Fury was a whopping 276 pounds upon his return from exile last year.
This came after struggling to come to terms with his success and the Manchester man seeking solace in drink and drugs.
A stunning return to draw with WBC title holder Deontay Wilder followed just six months after his comeback. Fury will meet Wilder again in much better condition next year.
First of all, undefeated Swedish southpaw Wallin must be dealt with at the T-Mobile Arena.
