JOHN FURY has claimed his son Tyson will be at least a STONE lighter against Dillian Whyte than he was in his last fight.
Fury, 33, scaled a career-heaviest 19st 11lb the night he knocked out Deontay Wilder, 36, last October.
And he promised to go even bigger for his UK homecoming fight against Whyte, 34, on Saturday at Wembley.
But in a shock U-turn dad John – known to try and fool the public like his son – announced the Gypsy King has LOST weight.
He told Queensberry Promotions: "He's a bit lighter to tell you the truth than his last fight.
"I reckon the night he'll be about 18 [stone] 12, or 18 stone 11."

That would be Fury's lightest since beating Otto Wallin, 30, at 18 stone in a performance blasted by John.
His dad said at the time: “He was as weak as a kitten. His body looked a lot softer tonight.
"He is not an 18st fighter, he wants to be body beautiful."
It remains to be seen whether John's so-called reveal is accurate – but the man himself suggested otherwise.

Fury said last month: "I will try to come in at my heaviest weight of all time.
"For my biggest fight, in front of my biggest audience I will try to be a man mountain.
"I will be heavier than 19st 10lbs. My personal message to Dillian is 'I will win this fight for England and St George, on St George's Day'."
