Tyson Fury 'ready for war' as he hit the scales for his bout against Chisora

On Saturday night, Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora will square off in the ring at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Their penultimate act before the battle was to weigh in in front of a gathering of supporters on Friday at the Business Design Centre in Islington.

Chisora took his time to process slowly in and held his arms wide as he weighed in, taking in the moment. "I'm buzzing, I'm excited," he said afterward "What I'm saying is, don't miss this."

Fury came in with a smile and his own arrangement of "Sweet Caroline" for a charity single. As he weighed in, Fury's size advantage was obvious. Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, towered over Chisora at 6ft 9ins tall.

He will be the heavier guy in Saturday's world title bout. Chisora weighed 260lbs 10oz, whereas Fury weighed 268lbs 10oz.

When Fury came face to face with Chisora, his smile vanished. Fury scowled at his adversary. Chisora's face was obscured by a Union flag mask and sunglasses tucked tightly under his hat.

Neither of them wanted to break the stare. Even when an official held a piece of paper between their faces, they didn't move apart.

This would be the third time both the brits squared off against each other. The last two bouts between them ended in favor of Gypsy King. Can Chisora cause an upset this time? Let us know in the comments!
