TYSON FURY outweighed Deontay Wilder by over 40lbs as the two fighters were kept apart at the weigh-in ahead of tomorrow’s showdown for the WBC heavyweight title. Fury mocked Wilder from distance as security guards separated the rivals following a bad-tempered fight week.

Much has been made of Fury’s losing 100lbs since announcing his comeback, but it was Wilder’s weight that raised eyebrows outside the Los Angeles Convention Center. He tipped the scales at 212 1/2lbs, the lightest since his debut in 2008.

Fury – who came in at 256 1/2lbs – laughed and shouted to his fans who had swamped the media enclosure, “212 pounds? He’s got no chance. One punch. He’s gone.
