????" STORY: Lineal heavyweight champ Tyson Fury and challenger Otto Wallin both made weight Friday (September 13) for this weekend's showdown in Las Vegas.

Brit Fury (28-0-1 20 KOs) weighed in at 254 1/4 pounds (115.3 kilograms) while Swede Wallin (20-0 13 KOs) tipped the scales at a much lighter 227 pounds (103 kgs).

The 31-year-old Fury and 28-year-old Wallin will take to the ring Saturday (September 14) night for a scheduled 12 round fight at T-Mobile Arena.

Also on Friday, Fury and Deontay Wilder agreed to terms for their highly anticipated rematch, promoter Bob Arum told BT Sport, and also signed a deal for a third fight.

The pair is expected to face off on February 22 in Las Vegas after fighting to a draw last December in Los Angeles in a match that allowed Wilder to retain his WBC heavyweight title.

Each side of the February match will get 50 percent of the purse, according to the sports broadcaster, while the winner of the third gets 60 percent and the loser 40.

Fury stunned boxing fans in 2015 when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko for the IBF, WBA and WBO belts, but he later struggled with his mental health, drinking and drug use, derailing his career.
