Photos: Wilder, Duhaupas Tense Face To Face at Weighin

By Jake Donovan

All systems are go for the first heavyweight title fight on primetime network television in 30 years. Deontay Wilder brings home his title for the second straight time, as he takes on France's Johann Duhaupas this Saturday evening at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.

Wilder (34-0, 33KOs) weighed 228.6 lbs.—though the weight also including his jeans and belt—while Duhaupas tipped the scales at a lean and healthy 236 lbs.

The bout will air live on NBC, headlining the fourth primetime edition of Premier Boxing Champions' "PBC on NBC." 

In the co-main event, 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic Breazeale puts his unbeaten record on the line versus spoiler Fred Kassi, who is coming off of a surprise draw in what should have been a win over Chris Arreola in July.

The 6'7" Breazeale weighed 258.2 lbs., enjoying a 7" and 36 lb. weight advantage over Kassi, who weighed 222.6 lbs.

Opening the telecast, unbeaten heavyweight Charles Martin faces Mexico's Vicente Sandez in a regional title fight. Martin tipped the scales at a ripped and ready 247.8 lbs.; Sandez, who is significantly shorter than the 6'5" southpaw, weighed a fleshy 249.4 lbs.
