WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder feels “nervous energy” is behind Tyson Fury’s decision to switch trainers and pile on the pounds ahead of their showdown in Las Vegas

After parting company with Ben Davison, Fury has teamed up with Sugar Hill Steward to prepare for the eagerly-awaited rematch at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on February 22.

The Briton has also bulked up in preparation to meet the 6ft 7in American again, their last contest during December 2018 ending in a controversial split draw – with Fury having twice hauled himself off the canvas.
