Tyson Fury weighed in three stone heavier than WBC champion Deontay Wilder ahead of Saturday's heavyweight rematch in Las Vegas.
Fury weighed in at 19st 7lbs (273lbs), while Wilder tipped the scales at a career-high 16st 7lbs (231lbs).
Britain's former unified champion came in over 16.5lbs heavier than his first meeting with Wilder and only three pounds lighter than his previous heaviest mark of 276lbs for his comeback fight against Sefer Seferi in 2018.
Wilder, who weighed his lightest in a decade when they first fought, this time the American came in at a career-high weight after putting on 18.5lbs since their December 2018 draw.
Fury and Wilder had been banned from sharing a final face-off after shoving each other at the press conference.
But the fired-up rivals still shouted a few parting insults at each other before they eventually left the stage.
