Fury fights on Saturday night from 7pm, live on Sky Sports Action, aiming to put a recent defeat to Alexander Povetkin firmly behind him.

The younger cousin of Tyson Fury weighed-in at 16st 10lbs on Friday, 10lbs heavier than prior to his decision loss to Povetkin. His opponent Sour was 17st 2lbs.

Fury promised he has “fixed the problems” that led to defeats to Joseph Parker, Kubrat Pulev and Povetkin and, aged just 25, still has plenty of time to make a statement in the division where Anthony Joshua faces Andy Ruiz Jr next Saturday, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
