The ‘Bronze Bomber’ was largely contained by Fury during their first fight in Los Angeles on December 1
Deontay Wilder has revealed he plans to put on TWO STONE before his proposed rematch with Tyson Fury in 2019.
The WBC agreed to sanction a second bout between the pair in the New Year after their first fight was controversially declared a draw.
Despite being outboxed for large parts of the fight, Wilder still managed to use his freakish power to put Fury on the canvas twice in the fight.
However, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ admitted he wants to get even bigger than his 15 stone 2lb frame and be able to hit harder than ever before if they do meet in Spring 2019 as is being discussed.
He said: “We gonna adjust the weight.
“We gonna do a lot of things. Especially with the weight. Because these guys have out-weighed me the majority of my career.
“My goal was always to be 245, that’s what my goal has always been. But somebody’s gonna get hurt.
“If weight brings big-man power, and I already had the power and the speed, somebody gonna get hurt.
“So if people wanna see me put on weight and someone get hurt, then so be it.”
Although he appeared to be carrying lots of excess skin in the fight in Los Angeles, Fury’s stamina and cardio proved to be in excellent condition at the Staples Center.

The ‘Gypsy King’ is back in the gym already ahead of his the touted rematch, clearly keen to keep off the weight he piled on during his absence from the ring.
And, speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience, Wilder said: “He sent me a video of him back in the gym!
“And I just hit back ‘Likewise’ and it’s crazy because his mindset is being back in the gum and mine is just the same way.”
