DEONTAY WILDER dismissed suggestions Tyson Fury will provide him with his biggest challenge, after weighing in more than three stones lighter than his rival ahead of Saturday’s fight at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

Fury smiled as he entered the stage shirtless and remained relaxed as he weighed in at 18 stone four pounds, engaging with his fans – who convincingly outnumbered Wilder’s.

The two were then kept at a safe distance for their final face-off, following Wednesday’s press conference when they and their two entourages threatened to get violent during a heated confrontation.
