GERMANY — “Let the games begin!” was Tyson Fury’s response after shaking hands with champion Wladimir Klitschko following their weigh-in earlier today.
Klitschko’s 245.3 pounds is a slight increase over the 241.5 he weighed for April’s defense against Bryant Jennings. Fury’s 246.4 is his lowest weight in over two years. In July 2012, Fury tipped the scales at 245 for a bout against Martin Rogan.
The fight airs Saturday on HBO World Championship Boxing at 4:45 p.m. ET.
