Tyson Fury's trainer has revealed the WBC world champion will weigh in 20lbs heavier for his trilogy fight with arch-rival Deontay Wilder, insisting the extra weight will definitely pay off in this weekend's mouthwatering showdown.
Sugar Hill Steward says the Gypsy King is taking nothing for granted for the third installment between the bitter heavyweight rivals, believing American Wilder has improved greatly since Fury ended his five-year reign with a brutal seventh-round stoppage in their second fight in February 2020.
Their first fight at LA's Staples Centre in December 2018 ended in a dramatic draw and they meet again on October 9 with Fury's camp ready for everything Wilder can throw at them as he bids to regain his crown at the at T-Mobile Arena in Vegas.
