  • Tyson Fury

    Those close to Fury, in his second bout of a lucrative ESPN contract in the USA, hope he can enhance his growing profile in the country.

    With the contest falling on Mexican Independence Day weekend, fight week has seen Fury dressed as a Mexican wrestler, serving tacos in a Mexican restaurant and delivering phrases in Spanish to the media in a bid to maximise the non-title bout's profile in the States.

    Sweden's Wallin - who scaled 236lbs - has been written off but his team say he will "attack" the "obvious" flaws they see in Fury.

    Fury's remarkable weight loss transformation points to his ongoing dedication and his mark of 254lbs is the lightest he has been since he faced Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.


    Fury's physique is unrecognisable from two years ago, when he weighed around 28st following well-publicised mental health struggles. He is more than half a stone lighter than last time out and from his peak, has now lost the equivalent in weight of a Vasyl Lomachenko or close to a prime Floyd Mayweather.

    "He might just be, right now, the best Fury we have seen," said 5 Live Boxing's Steve Bunce.

    "That includes the Fury that got in the ring with Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. He looks faster, slimmer and is clearly better mentally. He is getting close to optimum."

    Mike Costello, 5 Live's boxing commentator, added: "Wallin was a key sparring partner for Anthony Joshua. He is not unknown but looking online he does look slow on his feet, so he will be beaten for speed, variety and class, it seems."
