Fury slightly heavier than Klitschko for title bout

Wladimir Klitschko will head into Saturday’s heavyweight title bout with Tyson Fury less than one kilogram lighter than his British opponent after weighing in at 111.5kg.

Klitschko will put his WBA Super, WBO and IBF belts on the line in Dusseldorf this weekend as he looks to claim a 65th win of his illustrious career.

The Ukrainian took to the scales in Essen and came in slightly under Fury’s weight, the challenger having come in lighter than expected at 112kg.

After plenty of antics in the build-up to the title fight, Friday’s weigh-in was completely different, neither man entertaining any games as they posed head-to-head.

Surprisingly Fury’s extrovert character was not on show as he remained tight lipped, while also refusing to shake Klitscko’s hand.
