Tyson Fury is a “a whole different man” and will defeat Deontay Wilder in their upcoming rematch, according to Tommy Fury. Fury will take on Wilder in tonight’s highly-anticipated bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Paradise, Nevada after their controversial draw two years ago.
100 per cent, I reckon he’s going to stop Wilder in rounds 9-12. Tyson’s a whole different man and he’s going show that tomorrow night
Tommy is certain that his brother will put together an even better performance than he did in 2018 at the Staples Centre and will beat The Bronze Bomber.
The Gypsy King received a major confidence boost during the weigh in as he got a hero’s welcome by the Las Vegas faithful whereas the WBC champion was greeted by a chorus of boos.
The American fighter weighed in at a career-high 231lbs whereas the British superstar was three stone heavier at 273lbs.
Tommy, though, expects Fury’s weight to play no role in tonight’s fight as he anticipates Wilder to go down at some point between the ninth and 12th round.
