TYSON FURY made a surprising choice in his boxing gloves and they reveal how he might be planning to defeat the WBC American champion Deontay Wilder in their fight today.
The Gypsy King chose the Everlast MX gloves, known to be a puncher’s glove. This will be intriguing to some, as Fury is not known to be a ferocious hitter, with just 19 knockouts from 27 contests to date. As he chose his fighting pair, Fury vowed: “I am going to war”, according to ESPN’s Seve Kim.
This strategy is shocking from a man who used agility to battle former lineal heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
The British boxer, who was world heavyweight champion in 2015, is making a comeback after a time out of the sport.
During is 30-month hiatus he battled depression and accepted a backdated two-year ban from UK Anti-Doping.
He will face Deontay for a world heavyweight title fight at Staples Centre in Los Angeles.
Fury said he will enjoy one of the “best days of my life” when he comes face to face with the Bronze Bomber.
In yesterday’s weigh-in, Fury stood at 18stone 4 1/2lbs, more than three stone heavier than Wilder at just 15stone 2 1lbs.
