Tommy Fury has successfully made weight for his showdown with KSI after John Fury raised some concerns over the scales being used earlier in the day.

Fury had to weigh in at 183lb or below for the bout with KSI, who had agreed to step back up in weight after dropping down to 180lb for his fight with Joe Fournier in May.

When taking to the scales for the official weigh-in on Friday, Tommy looked lean and muscular – tipping the scales at 182.6lbs.

Meanwhile, KSI – who is looking to cause an upset on Saturday evening – weighed in at 181.3lbs, 1.3lbs than his opponent. 

After taking to the scales, the two boxers completed their final face off before Saturday evening’s bout.

The former Love Island star was also heard hurling abuse at KSI, saying: ’24 hours you piece of s***, 24 f******hours. 

’24 f****** hours you pretend piece of s***. 24 hours you f****** pretend piece of s***, you c***, f*** you! 24 hours, KO you b****.

Meanwhile, KSI said: ‘How is Tommy Fury getting booed in his own hometown? Ladies and gentlemen, it’s KSI!

‘Ladies and gentlemen I’ve been the underdog before, this isn’t my first time. From Joe Weller to Logan Paul, I’ve been here before. So understand this, no one knows what I know, what my team knows, no one fucking knows what my f***ing sparring partners know.

‘But tomorrow ladies and gentlemen you will all understand and you will all know. Let’s f***ing go baby!’. 

There were concerns Fury would miss weight after his father vented his frustrations over the scales being used earlier in the day.

Fury took part in a the behind closed doors weigh-in between 10am and 1pm, with Dillon Danis also taking issue with the timing of Logan Paul‘s weigh-in.

John appeared to be frustrated with the scales being used for the weigh-in and was heard sharing his concerns during a video shared by boxing coach Gary Olive.

‘Get the f***ing scales sorted,’ John was heard shouting. ‘What the f*** is this?’ before storming out of the room.

However, all concerns were alleviated when Fury took to the stage on Friday afternoon, weighing in at 182.6lbs for Saturday’s bout. 

The former Love Island star is being backed as the favourite for his highly-anticipated fight against the YouTuber at the Manchester Arena. 

The odds swung heavily in his favour after Tyson Fury’s younger brother took to social media to reveal his body transformation. 

The 24-year-old star shared a picture showing how his body has changed over the last couple of months. 

He compared a picture of himself from nine weeks ago standing in a pair of swimming trunks by the water alongside one of him recently inside a gym.

Fiancée Molly Mae Hague, with whom he shares daughter Bambi, eight months, commented: ‘Absolutely insane’. 

Fury is confident he can secure a statement win against KSI on Saturday night. He told Mail Sport: ‘In my mind, this is not 50/50 at all. I am 100 times better than KSI. 

‘I am the better athlete, the better fighter, the mover. Whatever you want to say, I am. I have had all this pressure before. It’s not this is my first massive occasion. I have been on this world stage before, with all eyes on the fight. 

‘I have had Ronaldo ringside. I’ve had Mike Tyson ringside. I have had every body. It’s really my second time at this. I am looking to put on a much better performance this time. I am looking to get KSI out of there early and make a statement.’
