The heaviest Fury and Wilder ever in a trilogy showdown

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and challenger Deontay Wilder will be the heaviest fighting weights to date when they make their third clash in Las Vegas on Saturday. British defending champion Fury tilted the scale at 277 pounds (125.6 kg) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and Wilder came in at 238 pounds (107.9 kg). Fury, who refused to take off his shirt when climbing the scale, weighs four pounds more than he weighed 273 pounds when he recorded Wilder’s seventh round knockout at his second meeting 20 months ago.
