Fury had been a whopping 277lbs (19st 11lbs) for his last outing – that underwhelming split decision victory over Francis Ngannou last October. But here he came in at 262lbs (18st 10lbs) – a whopping 15lbs later.

Usyk meanwhile had been 221lbs (15st 11lbs) for each of his last three bouts – a pair of decision wins over Anthony Joshua and a stoppage of Daniel Dubois. Here his weight was initially announced as 233.5lbs – but later confirmed as 223.5lbs after it transpired it was announced wrongly.
