The last hurdle is out of the way and we’re officially a few hours away from one of the biggest events in the combat sports industry in 2020.
Tonight in Las Vegas, US, WBC champion Deontay Wilder will defend his title against former unified heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Yesterday the two fighters had successful weigh-ins, making the fight official. Needles to say, the Brit came in way heavier than his American adversary.
“The Gypsy King” weighed in at 123.8 kilograms – 8 kilograms more than his fight in September against Otto Wallin.
“The Bronze Bomber” tipped the scale at 104.8 kg, 19 kilos less than his opponent. The champion has never been heavier in his pro career, as he came in at 99.6 kilos for his November rematch with Luis Ortiz.
Both men are way over their December 2018 weight. Back then, Wilder tipped the scale at 96.4 while Fury came in at 116.3 kg.
