Dillian Whyte was in impressive shape

Chisora was first on stage in Islington and, after citing physical preparation and conditioning as reasons for teaming up with David Haye, the Finchley-born slugger weighed in at a chiselled 17st 8lbs 3oz.

It is the lightest he has been since he challenged the legendary Vitali Klitschko for the WBC title in 2012.

Having bulked up to 18st 6lb to bully his way through a unanimous decision win over Joseph Parker in July, Whyte vowed he would be lighter for this fight and was true to his word, weighing 17st 8lbs 8oz.

A tense face off preceded, as both men had one last look at the other before they step into the ring tomorrow and security were needed to intervene after the feuding pair had left the stage.

Tensions continued backstage between the groups, with amateur footage showing Chisora goading a member of Whyte’s entourage, believed to be one of his brothers, and security moving in to calm the 34-year-old.

The other Brit in heavyweight action on Saturday night, David Price, weighed in at 18st 1lbs 3oz for his bout with Tom Little, who was 18st 6lb 7oz.

Challenging for the WBC flyweight world title, Charlie Edwards came in at 7st 13lbs 8oz, while undefeated light-heavyweight Joshua Buatsi was again in peak condition at 12st 6lbs 5oz.
