    Tyson Fury will weigh 17 kilograms heavier than Deontay Wilder in tomorrow afternoon's heavyweight boxing bout in Las Vegas


    Both competitors came in at the heaviest weights of their professional careers, with Fury tipping the scales at 125 kilograms and Wilder coming in at 108 kilograms.

    Fury is making the first defence of the WBC title he won after dethroning Wilder as champion in February last year - both combatants' last fight.

    This is their third fight after the first ended in a draw.
