Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury intends to remain healthy and stay out of trouble as he plots his way back to the top of the heavyweight division.

The 31-year-old Mancunian relinquished the belts he won against Wladimir Klitschko after much-publicised mental health problems and a ban for a failed drugs test.

Fury has one eye on a February rematch with WBC champion Deontay Wilder after their meeting last December finished in a controversial draw but for now he has to focus on Saturday’s Las Vegas bout against relative unknown Otto Wallin.

And Fury, who has had previous weight problems and once ballooned to 28 stone, insists he is now in peak condition.


Fury’s new fitness regime meant he was able to bring forward a fight date by a month in order to top the bill at the T-Mobile Arena on Mexican Independence weekend.








Fury has embraced the Mexican theme since securing this date, this week rebranding himself ‘El rey de los gitanos’ (king of the gypsies) and appearing at his public workout in a lucha libre wrestling mask and wearing a headband in the country’s colours.


Wallin has a 20-fight unbeaten record, including 13 knockouts, but has never fought at this level.


But the Swede, whose father died of a heart attack in May, is relishing the prospect of fighting the former heavyweight champion.
