‘He looks skinny’ – Oleksandr Usyk targets Tyson Fury’s physique as ‘Gypsy King’ reveals his weight

Oleksandr Usyk insists Tyson Fury looks ‘skinny’ ahead of their Saudi showdown.

The Brit has always carried a little extra wood around his stomach, but ahead of his four-belt shootout with Usyk on Saturday, he looks very fit.

Photos uploaded to his social media earlier this week showed Fury with abs while his father, John Fury, claimed his son was coming in at the lightest weight of his career.

As Fury made his way to the grand arrivals stage on Tuesday, Usyk, who was watching his opponent walk from the balcony above, could be heard saying: “He looks skinny.”

For his part, the Ukrainian’s promoter, Alexander Krassyuk, said: “He looks skinny, so who is the middleweight now?

“It’s because he’s nervous, when you get nervous you lose weight or gain weight like his mother.”

However, “The Gypsy King” claims that her weight is not below normal.

“I’ll tell you my weight. I weigh about 19 stone (266 pounds). I weigh about 19 stone or so,” he told DAZN.

“I’m in good shape, I’ve done two or three consecutive camps.

“People say I look skinny, but I’ve weighed the same on my scale for ten years.”

Usyk insists Fury looks ‘skinny’, but Brit claims he weighs around 266lbs

In recent years, Fury’s fighting weight has fluctuated between 260 pounds and 277 pounds.

The lowest he has ever been on the scale is 245.5 pounds for his fight with Vinny Maddalone in 2012.

Meanwhile, last time out he tipped the scales at a career-heaviest 277.7 pounds for his crossover clash with Francis Ngannou.

Former heavyweight champion Tony Bellew reacts to John Fury’s comments towards him and calls his behavior “embarrassing”.

But if Fury’s estimates are correct, he will be at roughly the same weight for his next contest as in his previous two outings against Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora ​​in 2022.

“It’s hard to know what’s going to happen on Saturday night,” Fury said when asked about his expectations for fight night.

“It’s well known that I don’t really have a plan until I get there.

“I’ve fought every style before, orthodox, southpaw, tall, short, fat, skinny, puncher, non-puncher and I’ve fought them all.

“It must be like a blessing from God because I’ve been successful all this time.

“And I don’t expect anything different on Saturday. Like I say, get paid, fuck off and go home.

“I believe in destiny, I believe in destiny and I’ve come a long way. I was watching a video of me when I was 28 stone working out and I thought ‘I’m a bad man’.

“I weighed almost 30 stone and became the heavyweight champion of the world again. It’s been an incredible journey and I’m looking forward to the next chapter.”
