Tyson Fury weigh-in: Gypsy King shows off incredible 8st 2lbs loss as he weighs in for boxing comeback

TYSON FURY hit the scales for his big boxing comeback this weekend – and showed off his incredible weight-loss.

That is an incredible 8st 2ozs less than when he weighed his heaviest as he took time out of the ring – Fury says he ballooned as high as 27st.

Meanwhile his Macedonain-born opponent Seferi tipped the scales at 15st 2ozs – and was completely dwarfed by Fury as they went for their last head-to-head.

The weigh-in at the outdoor venue in Manchester was all good-natured. Once the formalities had been completed, Fury hoisted Seferi into the air – with ease.

The huge outside then returned the favour – but clearly struggled lifting the former multiple-heavyweight world champ off the ground.

 The sheer difference in size and weight between the two boxers was obvious at today's weigh-in

Fury, as expected, is the huge favourite to win on Saturday, as short as 1-500 with some bookies.

And the man himself is predicting a fifth-round stoppage of the relative unknown Seferi.

Then the controversial heavyweight boxer is targeting a world title once again wrapped around his waist by the end of 2018.

Speaking to Fighting Pride, the 'Gypsy King' said: “I don’t know what to expect from Seferi, he’s got me on edge really.

"I don’t know how good he is, I don’t know if he’s terrible – I don’t know if he’s excellent.

“He could be the second coming of Evander Holyfield who knows, but I know what I can do and I’m not really too bothered what he can do.

“As long as I do what I do I’ll get him out of there round five."
