Today was the day of the official weigh-in ahead of the world heavyweight title showdown between Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury this Saturday, in Dusselfdorf.

You know it?s an event of huge significance when a certain Michael Bufferis orchestrating proceedings with his instantly recognisable dulcet tones.

Once both boxers were summoned to the scales, the official weights were given as:-

? Wladimir Klitschko ? 17 stone 7 pounds
? Tyson Fury ? 17 stone 9 pounds

giving the challenger a slight weight advantage.

As is normally the case, both fighters went into ?stare-down? mode, something that lasted a full minute before they broke and Tyson Fury shook the champions? hand.

Nothing too controversial in what we saw, but both fighters looked in terrific shape for the TUI Arena showdown tomorrow night.
