Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte live weigh-in and start time today

Tyson Fury is expected to shed a stone less than he did for his trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder last October as he prepares for his fight against Dillian Whyte on Saturday night. Whyte weighed in at 277lbs (16.2 stone) before knocking out Wilder in their epic third fight seven months ago, and was backed by his father John Fury to weigh in at 264lbs for his WBC title defense against Whyte at Wembley .

It’s the lightest Fury to weigh since his edgy 2019 win over Otto Wallin, with the heavyweight champion tactically using his height advantage against Wilder in their second and third fights. The duo met in the pre-fight press conference on Wednesday for the first time since the fight was announced, with Whyte opting to skip the first press conference to fully focus on his training camp at the Portugal.

And in what was a very respectful press conference between the two British boxers, there was further fuel on the fire as the pair acted as peacemakers in a heated conclusion between the two teams. Before Friday’s weigh-in, here’s everything you need to know:
