All bleary eyes on Las Vegas on Sunday morning: Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder III and the climax of a very modern rivalry which dates back to 2014, when Fury took to Twitter and warned: ‘I want u punk.’
An apology followed 15 minutes later — turned out he’d tagged England footballer Lucy Bronze, not the Bronze Bomber. Ali-Dawn Fraser, eat your heart out. Now, though, among the big questions ahead of this trilogy fight: how will Wilder cope en route to the ring?
Though more extravagance awaits, designers have promised this outfit will be ‘significantly lighter… so we don’t have any drama at all’.
Fury has already thrown down the sartorial gauntlet during fight week. His two-piece suit and trainers featured a patchwork of the WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight belts.
The trolling will continue once the first bell goes. Fury will use a specially-made stool, carrying a picture of Wilder and, in silver glitter, the words ‘Big Dosser’. As its designer explained: ‘After he’s done punching (him), he’ll be sitting on his face.’ Lovely image.
