Tyson Fury weighed in 42 pounds heavier than world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder for their blockbuster rematch, which is taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Wilder will put his WBC belt on the line against challenger Fury in the second instalment of their rivalry on Saturday after the pair fought out a contentious draw in December 2018 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Fury (29-0-1) was almost 50 pounds heavier than Wilder (42-0-1) in the first meeting and the former WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO champion carries another huge weight advantage heading into the second showdown.
Stepping onto the scales on Friday, British boxer Fury weighed 273 pounds, up from his 256.5lbs weight in 2018.
Meanwhile, Wilder – who was 212.5lbs for the first bout – tipped the scales at 231lbs.
Fury believes there is no issues with coming in heavier, as he stated for the past few weeks that he planned to enter the ring at around 270-pounds.
“The weight’s not a problem. It’s 273 pounds of pure British beef,” Fury said.
Fury made it clear that at no point was he trying to lose weight for the contest.
"I feel comfortable with the weight. I'm where I want to be. I haven't been trying to lose weight. I'm a giant heavyweight. I've been eating clean, eating well and whatever weight I weigh on the night is really unimportant," Fury said.
"You've seen heavyweights come in at 200 pounds. You've seen them come in at 300 pounds. The heavyweight division has no limit, so it's one of those things."
