At the weigh-in on Friday, Fury stepped onto the scales first and came in at 273lbs (19st 7lbs) while the champion followed up at 231lbs (16st 7lbs).

For the first fight, Wilder scaled 212½lbs (15st 2lbs 8oz) – he is therefore 18½lbs heavier this time around.

Meanwhile, Fury weighed in for the first fight at 256½lbs (18st 4lbs 8oz) – so he is 16½lbs heavier.

The Brit therefore weighs exactly three stone more than the American heading into the bout.
