TYSON FURY has been warned to put weight BACK ON to avoid "disaster" against Deontay Wilder – having shed ten stone in 18 months.
Dereck Chisora has urged the Gypsy King to pile the pounds back on to regain his "power punches".
Fury had a tougher fight than expected last time out against Otto Wallin and was left needing 47 stitches on a horror gash above his eye.
The 31-year-old went on to win the bloody battle, but Chisora – who has lost to the Gypsy King twice in his career – believes losing all that weight went against him against the Swede southpaw.
Chisora said: "After I saw his last fight, I think he needs to do more now because he stopped doing things that he was doing before.
“He’s lost so much weight, and he doesn’t have the power punches anymore that he had.
“I think the rematch will be a disaster for him if he doesn’t fix it up right now.”
Fury has drastically scaled down his 6ft 9ins frame, once tipping the scales at 28st.
At his heaviest, the Gypsy King was chasing 20 pints of lager a night with whiskey and vodka, while gorging on pizza, kebabs and packs of chocolate.
Now on the back of his brutal win over Wallin, Fury is readying himself for a rematch with Wilder after their controversial draw last December.
Fury is now preparing for his debut in WWE – which could see his clash with the Bronze Bomber cancelled – where he will wrestle the 27st Braun Strowman at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia on October 31.
And Fury has insisted his war wounds are healing as he prepares to "take over" the entire fleet of combat sports – including Mixed Martial Arts.
He claimed: "I'm taking over. I'm taking over all combat sports.
“So whatever combat sports you're in, beware because The Gypsy King is coming.”
When pressed as to whether that meant having a crack at MMA, he replied: “MMA takeover.”
On his WWE debut, Fury recently claimed: "I think I was born to do this. I'm a natural entertainer as you can see with the boxing.
“Now I'm going to the real entertainment, the best value in entertainment in sports, WWE.”
