Williams defeats Hernandez
American boxer Julian Williams has just scored a split decision victory over Vladimir Hernandez.
The decision of the judges – 96-94, 97-93, and 94-96 – is being rightly seen as a controversial decision with Hernandez looking more the aggressor throughout the bout.
Ainsley Harriott offers his support for Fury
There’s been a tremendously random group of celebrities wishing Fury the best for tonight’s bout.
Drake, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and now TV chef Ainsley Harriott. Who’d have thought you’d ever see them in the same list?
Anyway, here’s Ainsley’s take on the Kaiser Chiefs for your viewing pleasue.
Tyson Fury goes in 20lbs heavier than the previous meeting
Tyson Fury’s rigorous training in the build-up to the fight has been supplemented with a 5,000 calories a day diet.
Fury’s camp had a simple response to the reasoning behind the decision, with trainer Sugar Hill Steward saying: “Heavier than last time by 20 pounds or so, why not?”
In order to put on the weight, George Lockhart revealed what went into his nutritional regimen in an interview with Coffee Friend.
“First thing in the morning Tyson is definitely going to have a coffee with his breakfast and what he eats is dictated by the activities of the day. But one thing that’s constant every single day is he has: one fish, one chicken, and one red meat throughout the day in each one of his meals. It might go up and it might go down but he consumes about 5000 calories a day.
“He doesn’t have any cheat meals, he does not really crave anything. He also gets things like yoghurts and fruit bowls, so we give him tons of antioxidants. He gets those with the fruit but through the coffee as well, which is great at getting rid of pre-radicals. When you workout as much as Tyson does you create a lot of pre-radicals. We want to make sure we keep that stress down and keep him healthy.
“Coffee absolutely helps Tyson Fury in his preparations, 100 percent. Tyson uses it for performance and for a social thing. Every morning when the guys get up, everyone in the team has a cup of coffee. Coffee is a huge deal to Tyson. Him and Sugar Hill bought this $1500 coffee machine, it’s insane. I thought all coffee tasted the same until I tried it. It helps him out with focus and energy levels.”
“When you workout, your body creates a lot of negative material, you’re stressing the body out, the pre-radicals is what our body releases when you work out, so when you ingest an antioxidant it actually gets rid of those pre-radicals. You can have an amazing car, put amazing fuel in it but if it’s got no exhaust system it’s going to break down. Antioxidants are basically what helps you stay younger, it helps with inflammation and helps you look younger. So coffee is a good antioxidant.”
Fury, 33, obliterated his big-hitting American rival, 35, when they met in Sin City back in February 2020, flooring the Bronze Bomber twice before former trainer Mark Breland threw in the towel.
Breland has since been replaced by Malik Scott and Wilder has vowed to exact revenge over his rival. The American weighed in at a career-high 238lbs on Friday as he bids to nail his elusive rival to the canvas.
Meanwhile, Fury is certain that he will emulate his performance from 20 months ago and hit the scales four pounds heavier than the last time they met, weighing in at 277lbs.
