How does Tyson Fury's weight against Dillian Whyte compare to previous fights?

The weigh-in is over and the next time Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte will meet is inside the ring on Saturday night at Wembley Stadium.

Fury said he started training for his all-British blockbuster against Whyte in January and according to his father John Fury, it has been his best camp yet.

This is the opposite of what was said going into the trilogy with Deontay Wilder. Fury claimed he had trained for just three weeks and John Fury wanted him to pull out of the fight.

The 'Gypsy King' weighed in at 264lbs and 13oz ahead of tomorrow night and below, we take a look at his weight from the previous five fights.

Deontay Wilder (October 9, 2021)

Fury hit the scales at 277lbs for the trilogy installment in Las Vegas and it did the trick as Fury overcame an onslaught to win in the penultimate round via KO.

Deontay Wilder (February 22, 2020)

The rematch saw Fury fight for the first time under SugarHill Steward with Andy Lee also in his corner for the bout.
Fury - who knocked Wilder out in round seven to become WBC heavyweight champion - was 273lbs at the weigh-in 24 hours before.

Otto Wallin (September 14, 2019)

Against the Swedish southpaw, Fury came in at his lightest weight out of the five fights mentioned in this piece at just over 254lbs.
While Fury was at his trimmest since returning to the ring after nearly three years out in 2015, it was perhaps a factor behind his poor performance against Otto Wallin.
The British heavyweight sustained a deep cut around the right eyelid and the fight nearly got stopped due to the severity of the cut. However, Fury overcame it and won on points. Following the win, Fury required 47 stitches.

Tom Schwartz (June 15, 2019)

Fury returned to America for the first time since facing Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title.
This time, it was a new-look Fury under Bob Arum's Top Rank promotions and he fought German fighter Ben Schwartz.
Fury walked out dressed as fictional Rocky character Apollo Creed and stopped Schwartz inside a couple of rounds. Fury was 263lbs going into the contest.

Deontay Wilder (December 1, 2018)

In his first mega fight since dethroning Wladimir Klitschko, Fury weighed in at 256.5lbs. It was an incredible achievement considering Fury was as heavy as 400lbs during his mental health struggles.

Fury would outbox Wilder throughout the contest and somehow beat the 10-count in round 12 following a knockdown.
It appeared to be over with Fury appearing unconscious but he lifted himself up and even ended the round better than his American rival.
