Watch Fury vs Usyk on Saturday live on Sky Sports Box Office

Tyson Fury shoved Oleksandr Usyk back in their final confrontation ahead of Saturday’s undisputed world heavyweight championship clash, live on Sky Sports Box Office, before confusion reigned over the Ukrainian’s weight.

After a dramatic weigh-in on Friday night in Riyadh, Usyk’s promoter has confirmed to Sky Sports that the Ukrainian’s weight was announced incorrectly at the centrepiece event.

The unified WBO, WBA and IBF champion was originally said to be 233½lbs (16st 9lbs), which would have been by far the highest Usyk has ever weighed.

But his promoter Alex Krassyuk has told Sky Sports that should actually have been 223lbs (15st 13lbs), 10lbs lighter than announced.
