Tyson Fury is at his lightest since he beat Wladimir Klitschko for his heavyweight clash with Sweden’s Otto Wallin on Saturday night.

The Gypsy King scaled 254.4 lbs at the private official weigh-in prior to the televised public re-enactment.

That was just over half a stone above his Klitschko weight and half a stone lighter than for his Vegas defeat of Germany’s Tom Schwarz 23 weeks ago.

This is further evidence that Fury is continuing with his dedicated training regime after ballooning to some 350 lbs during his two and a half year absence from the ring.

The Mancunian tipped the scales considerably heavier than Wallin, with the Swede weighing in at 236 lbs. 

Fury eventually came on stage wearing the mask of a lucha-libre wrestler in recognition of this weekend’s Mexico Independence Day celebrations.

Fury then grabbed the microphone to say, in a faux American accent: ‘In less than 24 hours from now Otto Wallin will feel the fury.

‘Bob (promoter Arum), get the steel cage out Bob so this bum doesn’t run away.’
