Often it is hard to know if Tyson Fury is being serious at press conferences when it comes to his fight strategy between his mental warfare and showmanship.
Recently he said that he intends on coming in at around 300 lbs. for the third fight with Deontay Wilder on July 24th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
It quite simply could be a big risk to be that heavy.
Speed kills and if he were that heavy it is possible Wilder could be around 80 lbs. lighter than him on fight night.
Potentially giving a significant speed and movement advantage due to the sheer weight that Fury would have put on.
It is hard to see him coming into the bout that big or what benefit it would give him, in fairness.
