Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte is the biggest fight of the year with a record attendance set to watch the boxing bout at Wembley on Saturday night.
The two boxers will face-off in a St George's Day battle on the pitch at Wembley Stadium, London, live on BT Sport Box Office.
BOXPARK Wembley was packed to the rafters on Friday for the weigh-in ahead of Saturday's World Heavyweight Championship collision between champion Tyson Fury and his London challenger, Dillian Whyte.
To huge acclaim, Fury stepped on the scales weighing 264lbs 13oz, 11lbs heavier than his domestic rival Whyte, who came in at 253lbs 4oz.
"I am so happy to be back here fighting in the UK at Wembley Stadium and you people made it happy," Fury addressed the cheering crowd.
"I just want to give a shoutout and respect to Dillian Whyte and his team, proper professional men and we are gonna give you a real fight."
"Don't doubt us, we are gonna put on a show like no other before. It will be a war, don't worry about that," added the Gypsy King, before the BodySnatcher had his say.
