Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte may not need to “make weight” for their world title fight – but it will still be fascinating to see how heavy the two rivals are.
The Brits will step on the scales around 2.40pm this afternoon and then face each other for the last time before the first bell rings at Wembley tomorrow night. And Fury’s weight in particular will likely provide a clue as to his tactics in the ring; when he comes in easier than he did against it Deontay Wilderhe can choose to be light-footed and unpack Whyte.
And you can watch the weigh-in live in the player above as the undercard contenders step on the scales starting at 2 p.m.
Fury was a career-difficult 277-pound for his third and final fight with Wilder last October, but his build-up had been hampered by his daughter’s premature birth and a bout of Covid. Fury insists his training camp was flawless this time as he seeks to defend his belt for the second time.
And it could be the last time fans will see Fury in the ring after he repeated his promise to retire. “I’m not in it long, I’m in it for a good time,” he said. “I have a few more fights and then I’ll be done.
“I’m getting too old for this, I’m too old for this – I’ll be 34 this year. I’ve had everything to deal with, weight loss, ups and downs, drinking problems, drug problems. I’m probably around 60 when it comes to boxing years.
“I’m still hitting, taking care of things, I’ll take care of a few fights and then we’ll see. I’m looking forward to all these fights. Whatever fights are next, they’re the ones I’m looking forward to. Don’t miss anyone, give everyone the respect they deserve as an opponent because as soon as you miss an opponent you fall off the cliff and die.”
