‘You know I’m a fat boy!’ – What Tyson Fury told Dillian Whyte after towering over opponent in title fight weigh in

TYSON FURY and Dillian Whyte snubbed fighting talk and chose to have a chuckle at their own expense for their final face off.

After the pair weighed in, they came nose to nose for the last time until they share the ring on Saturday, in front of over 90,000.

Fury, who stands 6ft 9in, went on his toes to tower over 6ft 4in WBC world title challenger Whyte.

They then began to touch each others pecks and debate who looked the better – or worse.

Fury, 33, says: “You know I’m a fat boy!”

Whyte, 34, then replied: “We’re both fat boys bruv! Maximum respect, come on.”

Fury hit the scales at 18st 12lbs, a stone lighter than his last fight against Deontay Wilder, 36, in October.

Meanwhile, Whyte weighed 18st 1lb ahead of his first-ever world title challenge.

Fury has not included a rematch clause in the contract – but will be offered a second fight if needed.

Whyte said: “There’s no rematch clause when you’re the mandatory challenger, but if I win on Saturday and it’s a good fight, I’ll fight him again.

“I don’t care what people think or care about me, I just want the best fights and give the fans the best. That’s what I want to do.

“I don’t want to fight someone nobody cares about and then go ‘I made this number of defences of the title’.
