Weigh-in Results: Chisora 238, Johnson 240; Fury 277, Abell 241

Scott Heavey

Tyson Fury came in at a career-high 277 pounds for tomorrow's fight with Joey Abell, while Dereck Chisora looked in good shape against Kevin Johnson.

Tyson Fury, weighing in fully clothes, came in at a by-far career-high 277 pounds on the scales today for tomorrow's fight in London against American club fighter Joey Abell, and may have had pockets filled with socket wrenches for all I know or all it much matters.

Fury faces Abell tomorrow at the Copper Box on a Frank Warren-promoted show, co-headlining with old rival Dereck Chisora. It's a bit of an audition show, as the two are favored to win, and if they do, have a tentative plan to rematch this spring. Fury beat Chisora back in 2011.

Fury (21-0, 15 KO) hasn't fought in 10 months, since coming off the canvas to wear down and stop Steve Cunningham. His UK superfight with David Haye, originally set for September, was postponed and then later in the year, canceled entirely. Abell (29-7, 28 KO) is a heavy-handed but limited slugger from Minnesota. He last fought in December, stopped in five by Kubrat Pulev.

Chisora (19-4, 13 KO) weighed in at 238 pounds for his fight with American Kevin Johnson (29-4-1, 14 KO), once a supposed contender who has stunk out the joint in losses to Vitali Klitschko and Fury. He lost his last fight to Christian Hammer in Germany.

The show will be available tomorrow at 2:00 pm EDT on BoxNation (UK), Integrated Sports PPV (US), GFL TV (US), and Fight Network (Canada).
