  • The UK’s Telegraph shared the above video of Tyson Fury’s dressing room ahead of his bout with Deontay Wilder:

    Born to fight. Up for these occasions. The dressing-room mood in the bowels of the MGM Grand Garden Arena was just a glimpse inside the mind of heavyweight boxing’s No 1 fighter, Tyson Fury, when he readies himself for battle.

    The man who calls himself the “Gypsy King” readied himself for battle against Deontay Wilder in the most extraordinary way. His hands were wrapped precisely by the best in the business, Jacob “Stitch” Duran, his entire team revelling in the relaxed mood Fury brought to the occasion.

    Not once, from the moment he walked into the casino resort to his wonderful performance which will be etched into boxing history, did Fury show vulnerability or nerves. The pressure was all left in the training camp, in the conquering of his mental illness.
