LIVE: Watch Tyson Fury weigh in for WBC title fight with Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury is expected to be close to the lowest weight of his professional career.

Weight is no longer an issue for Fury, who has returned to fitness after ballooning up to 400lbs in his two and a half years away from the ring.

A strict ketogenic diet and a dedicated training camp, the majority of which has been spent in Los Angeles, has seen Fury shed over 130lbs and he is looking in great nick ahead of his first title fight since his comeback.

Both Fury and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will take to the scales in LA on Friday afternoon and a significant size difference is expected between the undefeated fighters.

Fury has warned the event's organisers that a final face-off might be a bad idea due to the fracas which followed the staredown on Wednesday, when the fighters came close to blows.

"There should be no face-off at the weigh-in, and if it comes to fisticuffs then let’s have it. I will not wait until Saturday if he gets in my face before," Fury said at a media roundtable on Thursday.

"If I’m provoked then I have to retaliate. Hitting me is the worst thing anyone can ever do."
