Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte have hit the weight ahead of their WBC heavyweight title showdown at Wembley Stadium.

During Friday afternoon’s weigh-in, Fury came in at 264.8 lbs, his lightest since his first encounter against Deontay Wilder in December 2018.

‘The Gypsy King’ bulged up to its second and third match with Wilder, coming in at a whopping £ 277 last October for their trilogy match, but has fallen back to Saturday’s Battle of Britain.

Whyte, meanwhile, hit the weight of 253lbs.

‘The Body Snatcher’ comes 6 pounds heavier than he did for his rematch victory over Alexander Povetkin last year.

Fury, meanwhile, is 12 pounds lighter than last October’s war with Wilder.

The two shared a glance down the stage, but there were no further fireworks as the two shook hands in their last face to face before the opening bell and exchanged hats before walking apart.

This week’s press conference saw the first face-to-face meeting between Fury and Whyte.

The Londoner had previously refused to take part in media promotions promoting the match due to a legal dispute between his camp and the match promoter Frank Warren, and chose instead to remain in his match camp in Portugal.

Wednesday’s press conference was a friendly affair with the only tension coming under face-off as members of each man’s team escalated the situation.

Tyson’s father John and Dillian’s half-brother Dean exchanged words with the warriors playing peacemakers, trying to calm things down and ordering them to move away from the scene.
