A boxer on the undercard from Tyson Fury’s clash with Derek Chisora was so cold he came to the ring in a wool jacket.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was the scene of the shock trilogy clash between the old rivals who fought in 2011 and 2014.
The undercard fighters lit the blue touch paper and warmed up the crowd in the hours before the domestic dust cloud.
But it was so cold that one of them wore one PARKA JACKET to the ring so he doesn’t catch a cold.
Light heavyweight Karol Itauma donned a fluffy cream parka as he headed to the ring for his duel with Vladimir Belujsky.
And he wore the comfortable jacket until he was confronted with the Slovak in the middle of the ring before the start of the round.
Seeing Itauma keeping warm in his parka caused a crowd of boxing fans to comment on the temperature inside the stadium.
One said: “Apparently it’s ‘not that cold’ at Tottenham – outdoor boxing.”
Another asked: “Fans at Tottenham stadium how cold is it?”
22-year-old Itauma was almost outplayed by veteran Belujsky – who put him through to the eighth round.

But the Slovakian-born Brit eventually got Belujsky out with a break late in the verse.
