Challenger Fury walked out to a reception befitting of a home fighter as his travelling army of British fans took over the MGM Grand.

Wilder was booed, but remained composed regardless.

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.

While Fury is much heavier, he insists he is now fighting at a much more natural weight:

“I feel comfortable with the weight,” he said. “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.

“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.”
