Tyson Fury is a much bigger star in his home country than the last time he fought Dereck Chisora.

The 6-foot-9 Fury wasn’t much heavier Friday, though, than he was when he weighed in for their rematch eight years ago. Manchester’s Fury stepped on the British Boxing Board of Control’s scale at 268¾ pounds for his WBC heavyweight title defense against Chisora on Saturday night at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

Fury officially weighed 264 pounds the day before he stopped Chisora following the 10th round of a rematch he dominated in November 2014 at ExCeL London.

The 6-foot-1 Chisora, however, weighed much more Friday, 260¾ pounds, than he did for their rematch, for which he came in at 241½ pounds.

Though they were closer in weight, the odds on their 12-round main event are wide. Most handicappers have installed Fury as at least a 20-1 favorite to conquer Chisora in what is widely viewed as a tune-up for Fury before he secures a showdown with IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO champ Oleksandr Usyk early in 2023.

Manchester’s Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) has already beaten Chisora twice.

Their first fight, a 12-rounder Fury won by unanimous decision, occurred in July 2011 at Wembley Arena in London. Chisora weighed in at 261 pounds for their initial bout, five-plus more than Fury, who stepped on the scale at 255½ pounds 11 years ago.

London’s Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs), who will turn 39 on December 29, has lost seven fights since Fury defeated him for the second time. Fury, who was a contender the first two times they fought, has since held the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC and WBO titles at one time or another.

A few minutes before Fury and Chisora weighed in Friday, WBA world heavyweight champion Daniel Dubois got on the scale at 240½ pounds for his title defense against Kevin Lerena in the 12-round co-feature Saturday night. South Africa’s Lerena officially weighed 230¾ pounds.

London’s Dubois (18-1, 17 KOs) is a 14-1 favorite versus Lerena (28-1, 14 KOs), according to most sportsbooks.
