Tyson Fury recalls how he weighed 400lb ahead of Deontay Wilder rematch

Tyson Fury, British professional boxer, is gearing up for his heavyweight rematch with Deontay Wilder at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas next month.

The pair fought in December 2018 but no winner emerged at the end of the 12th round with judges declaring the bout a draw.

Fury, however, remains unbeaten in his professional career having drawn just one of his 30 fights in the past - with the remaining ending in wins for the Briton.

The 31-year-old has now recalled when he weighed 400lb as he returns to the ring for the WBC heavyweight title challenge.

While sharing the picture on his official Instagram page, the Gypsy King as he is often referred to said he could achieve anything as long as he puts his mind to it.

He said: "When someone says you can’t do something, look at this and remember anything is possible. This is me at over 400lb".

Meanwhile, SunSport reports that it is unsure when the picture was taken, but they attributed it to his trying time when he suffered depression and drug abuse in 2016.

Fury seems to have pushed the difficult time behind him having risen to become one of the world's best heavyweights.

The February 22 bout is, however, one of the most anticipated fights in the history of the sport.

It would be recalled that Fury parted ways with his trainer Ben Davidson in favour of SugarHill Steward towards the end of the outgone year - a move which was met with approval by his promoter Frank Warren.

"I know there is some concern about Fury changing trainers ahead of such a colossal clash," Warren said. "I’m certainly sad to see him split with Ben Davison because the pair were great together.

"But when Fury appointed Davison as the man to help him get back to the top many questioned him using such a young trainer. How wrong they were.

"So I am fully confident he knows what he’s doing in bringing in Javan ‘SugarHill’ Steward to take the corner for the Wilder rematch.

"Few fighters know what’s best for them than Fury and he will not have made the decision lightly."

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that British professional boxer Tyson Fury has sent a big warning to his February 22 opponent Deontay Wilder claiming that he will beat him in their coming rematch.

The two boxers will faceoff for the second time in 2020 in what is expected to be a tough rematch more than a year after they first met in Las Vegas, United States.

Fury has been training hard for this fight and he has confirmed his readiness to face Deontay Wilder.
