Tyson Fury weighed in over half a stone lighter than his last fight for his showdown with Otto Wallin on Saturday night.

The heavyweights tipped the scales in Las Vegas ahead of their ceremonial weigh-in later today, with Fury sporting his trimmest figure since November 2015.

Fury weighed in at 245.4lbs, nine pounds lighter than when he fought Tom Schwarz just 13 weeks ago.

The drop in weight may be a hint to Furys game plan, with the Gypsy King appearing to anticipate a quick-moving Wallin.

The Swedish fighter came in significantly lighter than Fury, posting 236lbs on the scales.

Wallin is undefeated in 21 fights, but like Schwarz was, is a huge underdog against Fury.

It is 45 months since Fury has been this light – the 31-year-old weighed 247lbs when he fought Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury has made a remarkable comeback from a two-year hiatus from boxing and has now lost an incredible 138lbs since deciding to make his return to the ring since the end of 2017.

Should Fury get past Wallin, the British heavyweight will take on Deontay Wilder in February in their hugely-anticipated rematch.

Fury has said he wants another tune-up fight in December, with Wilder expected to face Luiz Ortiz before the end of the year.
