Tyson Fury will go into Saturday's blockbuster heavyweight title fight with Deontay Wilder with a weight advantage of almost 50 pounds.

Should Wilder lose his title to Fury on December 1, Fury must give Wilder a contractually obligated rematch; however, a rematch may still happen even if Wilder wins.

Wilder will likely have to rely on speed to prevail having weighed in lighter than he did in his last fight against Luis Ortiz, the champion coming in at 212.5 pounds. There weren't any more big punches after that but the fact Fury was even able to get back up from such a vicious knockdown spoke volumes.
There is, however, doubt as to whether Wilder would take a rematch. Wilder tried going to the body too but, more often than not, his punches landed harmlessly on Fury's massive elbows.
The champion scored two knockdowns in the contest but struggled throughout to find the target against the tricky and tactically astute Fury, who used his superior boxing skills to control proceedings for long spells.
Wilder, having successfully defended his title, said he hoped for a rematch, either in the United Kingdom or U.S., and also extended the same gratitude to Fury for a fight that will surely live long in the memory.
The development and improvement is obvious. "It will be a proper fight but we expect that in the derby". On Sunday we will be ready again. "I don't want our players to think, "This is the match", he said.
