In a 12-round heavyweight championship bout, champion Wladimir Klitschko will take on Tyson Fury on Saturday afternoon, with the Klitschko vs. Fury fight being televised live in the afternoon on HBO. Right here, find the Klitschko vs. Fury weigh-in results from this morning.
Official Klitschko vs. Fury Weights from Germany:
- Wladimir Klitschko: 245.3 lbs.
- Tyson Fury: 246.4 lbs.
The weighs are interesting, with the two men so closely stacked up size-wise. Of course, Klitschko will actually be looking up at an opponent for change, with Fury having a rare height advantage.
Saturday’s HBO World Championship Boxing telecast begins at 4:45 p.m. (ET/PT). It will then be shown on tape delay, along with the Cotto vs. Canelo fight from last week, in a typical primetime slot.

AIBA Pro Boxers on the undercard of Wladimir Klitschko vs Tyson Fury event
APB boxers David Graf (GER) and Anton Pinchuk (KAZ) will face each other on the undercard of one of the most awaited bouts of this year, the Wladimir Klitschko vs Tyson Fury event in Dusseldorf, Germany. This event will mark the beginning of a new era and a natural step forward in the expansion of AIBA boxing initiated by President CK Wu since the beginning of his Presidency in 2006.
“We are very pleased with the results of the first year which crowned APB champions across the globe in 10 weight categories. This is a unique opportunity for both boxers to compete in front of more than 40,000 fans in Germany, which participates in our vision for APB development in the future” said AIBA President CK WU.
Heavyweight Graf, won both his APB bouts against tough Argentinian Yamil Peralta and Bulgaria’s Olympic Medalist Tervel Pulev. He will be hoping to extend that record to 3-0, while his opponent Pinchuk has already won 5 bouts in APB, only loosing to double World Champion Clemente Russo. Both boxers boast a similar style in the ring, but Pinchuk will be hoping that his greater big-match experience – including winning Gold at last year’s Asian Games – will help overcome Graf’s mental advantage from what will undoubtedly be a highly vocal and partisan crowd in Dusseldorf.
