WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury plans to weigh even heavier when he faces Deontay Wilder for the third time.

The Gypsy King said he is aiming at 300 pounds, 27 pounds heavier than his weight, on their rematch where he shoved the Bronze Boomer to win the belt via seventh-round TKO.

“Eating all that stuff takes a lot. I don’t know if I’m going to be at my career heaviest, but giving it to me best, best shot. Don’t worry about that. But I am certainly over 270 pounds right now.”

Moving to other topics, Fury shared his opinion about the loss of Anthony Joshua and their crushed undisputed heavyweight bout.

“Was I wounded that he won? Yes, I was. I was hoping Joshua could win the fight, but he couldn’t – and that’s none of my business.

“The only thing I’m bothered about is beating Deontay Wilder, and that’s the most dangerous heavyweight out there.

“In my opinion, Wilder beats Joshua, Usyk, all the rest of the division, comfortable – but he cannot beat me.”
