TOMMY FURY was accused of coming in 7lb OVERWEIGHT for his fight with Paul Bamba.
The pair meet over six rounds in Dubai tomorrow night on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition with YouTuber Deji.
Fury, 23, hit the scales at 12st 9lb while his American opponent, 33, weighed 12st 2lb, meaning there was half a stone between the pair.
Fury said: “No pressure at all, ready to go. Thank you all for coming, appreciate it. I’m going to put on a huge show for you all.
“A big dirty knockout is coming, I’ve trained eight weeks for this with the champ and I’m ready to go.”
But Paul interrupted and said: “It should be a knockout when you don’t make weight. That sucks.
“You’re about 7lb overweight and the world should know.”
Despite Bamba’s claim, SunSport understands Fury did in fact weigh in under his contract weight.
Jake Paul, 25, will be ringside for the fight on a scouting mission ahead of a potentially rescheduled grudge match with Fury.
But Bamba, an ex-marine who beat homelessness with boxing, has vowed to rip up the script and cause a scene.

He told SunSport: “I’m not just going to lay down it’s a great opportunity. I’m not just an opponent.
“I would say my next best bet would be the Jake Paul fight, if possible.
“I’ve sparred with Dillon Danis before, I did my thing with him before and they leaked that out.
“That’s another person who’s been in talks with Jake Paul as well, so I believe there’s a bunch of things I could get into as long as I perform on fight night.”
