Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte are set to lock horns on Saturday night in a blockbuster WBC heavyweight title clash at Wembley. Fury is unbeaten as a professional, with wins over the likes of Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder, while Whyte has been forced to wait almost five years for his shot at WBC glory.
The pair have weighed in ahead of the bout, with Fury coming in at 18st 12lb 13oz and Whyte at 18st 1lb 4oz. Speaking after the weigh-in, both fighters vowed to have a “f*****g war”.
Fury, who weighed in almost a stone lighter than he did for his trilogy fight against Wilder, said: “I’m so happy to be back here fighting and you all made it happen. Respect to Dillian Whyte and his team, they’re real professional and respectful men.
“And for that, we’re going to put on a f*****g war. I wanted it to be a great camp where I enjoyed every minute of it and take it all in and where better to do it than Wembley Stadium against Dillian Whyte?

“One of my old training partners, who’s made it big time. I’m happy for him, we’ve both made millions, we can’t believe it!”
Whyte, meanwhile, weighed in six pounds heavier than he was when he avenged his loss to Alexander Povetkin last year. “I respect him and he respects me, but we’re ready to do battle,” Whyte said.
“We’re ready to dust up and have it. Me and Tyson are cool. We’ve always been cool, but I’m ready for f*****g war. I’m ready to go, he’s ready to go.”
