Biggest Loser Fury ready to win tonight
By Jonny Stapleton
TYSON Fury believes he will transform from biggest loser to big winner in Bristol tonight.
The giant heavyweight,who weighed in at 17st 8lbs yesterday , has got rid of the spare tire around his waist and wants to replace it with titles.
The former British and Commonwealth champ has trimmed down significantly over the last number of months and claims a new attitude to training and diet will help him defeat Vinny Maddalone tonight and eventually progress from contender to heavyweight champion of the World.
The Irish heavyweight belt holder admits his weight soared along with his reputation in the past and he confident that if he adds superior fitness to the qualities he already posses he can rule the boxing world.
If the Manchester born Irish fighter over comes Vinny Maddalone tonight he will move another step closer to a massive bout with one of the Klitschko brothers.
Fury, who will be supported ringside by cousin Andy Lee in Bristol tonight, claims he is not over looking the American he will be expected to beat comfortably and is adamant he will challenge the Klitschko’s in his own time.
“I am came to Bristol to add another win to my record,” the Irish traveler said. “I want people to talk about heavyweight boxing for all the right reasons and my ultimate aim is to challenge the Klitschko brothers and become world champion. But many a fighter has made the mistake of looking too far ahead and coming unstuck and I’m not going to allow that to happen to me on Saturday night,” he added before discussing his new figure.
“I used to eat and drink what I liked and thought I could just turn up and knock opponents out. But then I realised that this is what I did for a living and I realised I had to start taking things seriously. Now I eat well, train well, sleep well and, hopefully, fight well. If I want to get to the very top, then I know I have to do things the right way. I am disgusted about the way I used to look, with big rolls of fat hanging off me. Look at my body. It bears no resemblance to what I used to look like. There’s no fat on me.”
