Fury sparks injury fears ahead of Wilder rematch

Tyson Fury sparked injury concerns as he arrived at the T-Mobile Arena for Conor McGregor’s fight with Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC246. The ‘Gypsy King’ appeared to be limping as he arrived in the arena.
The heavyweight is in Las Vegas to train for his rematch with Deontay Wilder next month. And he decided to attend UFC 246 on Saturday night to give himself a break from the gruelling training camp.
Fury previously stated that McGregor would be training him for his UFC debut – something ‘The Notorious’ denied.
However, the pair are believed to be good fans of each other.
Therefore, it wasn’t much of a surprise when Fury decided to attend McGregor’s return to the octagon against Cerrone.
However, when he was filmed arriving at the venue, he appeared to be limping slightly on his way in.
Fury didn’t give anything away when talking to BT Sport, however.
He joked that he had been spending his time at the T-Mobile Arena hanging out backstage with celebrities.
“I’ve been in the lounge with the celebs,” he said.
“Denzel’s in there, I’ve just had a drink with him.
“Elton John’s in there, Lil Wayne, Tom Jones, Drake, Beyonce, they’re all in there. Prince Harry’s even in there!
Fury did, however, share a quick prediction for how he thinks the fight will go.
He confidently proclaimed he believes the ‘Notorious’ will enjoy a successful return to the sport.
“I think Conor will beat Cowboy,” he said. “I don’t know much about the UFC and all that, but I know Conor is a good puncher.
“I predict that Conor will knock him out with a left hand as Cowboy’s backing up.”
