WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury comes in light for Dillian Whyte bout

:Headline: WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury comes in light for Dillian Whyte bout:
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury weighs in almost a stone lighter than for the third Deontay Wilder fight ahead of Saturday's showdown with Dillian Whyte.

Tyson Fury has decided to come in light for his WBC heavyweight showdown with Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

For the second and third chapters of his trilogy with Deontay Wilder, Fury weighed in at 273lbs and 277lbs respectively, and a similar weight seemed to be a logical step for a fight against someone of Whyte's stature.

However, the defending champion tipped the scales at 264.8lbs, his lowest weight for two-and-a-half years, and that was registered after Whyte had come in heavier than his last outing.

The long-time mandatory challenger recorded 253.25lbs, heavier than for his two clashes with Alexander Povetkin but 6lbs lighter than when he fought the smaller Oscar Rivas in 2019.

Whyte last featured in a high-profile bout against an opponent of similar size to Fury when he faced Robert Helenius in 2017, the London fighter weighing in at 247.25lbs on that occasion.
