LAS VEGAS, Nevada — The “Gypsy King” turned to ‘El Rey de Los Gitanos’ at weigh-in as he carries on his Mexican-themed strategy to psyche out his opponents.

Tyson Fury renamed himself to the Spanish version of his self-proclaimed monicker and will continue his nod to the Mexican culture ahead of the Central American nation’s Independence day.

Wearing a Lucha libre wrestling mask, Fury weighed in at 254.4 pounds or a little over 18 stones- his lightest since 2015. 

On the other hand, unheralded Otto Wallin tipped the scales at 236 lbs or 16st for their official weigh-in at the MGM Grand before tomorrow’s fight. 

Both register weights inside the catchweight intended for the heavyweight matchup at the T-Mobile Arena here.

“In less than 24 hours from now Otto Wallin will feel the fury,” said Fury in his best American accent towards his Swedish foe.

The British boxing star is eyeing this as a glorified warmup before his rematch with Deontay Wilder early next year.

“Bob, get the steel cage out Bob so this bum doesn’t run away,” he added, talking to Top Rank veteran promoter Bob Arum still sticking to his whole wrestling approach to the match.
