Tyson Fury Arrives To Deontay Wilder Weigh-In In Typical Fashion

Tyson Fury will be all business inside the ring at the Staples Centre on Saturday night when he takes on Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title but before then there's still time for his usual frivolity.

Love him or hate him it's difficult not to be entertained by Tyson Fury. The undefeated British heavyweight doesn't always have the most exciting style inside the ring but outside of it there's no doubting him.

Fury is the man who sang after his win over Wladimir Klitschko, dressed up as Batman in the build up to that fight and grabbed his belly in glee in the build up to the rematch that never happened.

Since the fight that never was Fury has been away from the ring, suffered from mental health issues and come back stronger to put himself in with a chance of winning the WBC heavyweight title and retaining his hold on the lineal championship too.

On Saturday night he will take on Deontay Wilder in LA at the Staples Centre. Ahead of the fight the two men were due at the weigh in on Friday and Fury arrived in typical fashion, well typical for him:

Both men head into their world title fight undefeated. Wilder boasts a record of 40-0, winning 39 of the fights by KO and with the only man he failed to knockout being KO'd in the rematch.

Fury's KO record isn't as good but he has still won all 27 of his professional fights, with 19 coming inside the distance.

The build up to the fight has been explosive and heated at times and it is expected to be an extremely interesting fight on Saturday night, or the early hours of Sunday morning for those of us in England.

Fury and Wilder both have very different styles inside the ring. The 33 year old from Alabama will be favourite when the fight starts but having beaten the odds to beat Klitschko you'd be foolish to rule out Fury.
