Tyson Fury weighed in over a stone heavier than last time for his huge rematch with Deontay Wilder in front of 4,000 passionate fans at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Fury came in at a whopping 19st 7lbs and weighed nearly three stone more than WBC heavyweight champ Wilder.

Wilder was also over a stone heavier and the Bronze Bomber tipped the scales at 16st 7lbs after coming in at 15st 2lbs 8oz for the first fight 14 months ago.

The unbeaten Gypsy King was 18st 4lbs 8oz in December 2018 and has decided to bulk up for the rematch in the early hours of Sunday.

Tyson Fury weighed in 42lbs heavier than Deontay Wilder

The pair were kept apart after weighing in to avoid a repeat of the pushing and shoving when they last met on Wednesday and they stood, trading insults instead.

Fury has vowed to knock Wilder out to avoid being robbed by the judges like he was at the Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

Fury kept his top on to hide his chest and recent pictures show he is certainly not defined and he is more dad bod than Adonis with love handles.

Deontay Wilder also hit the scales at his heaviest ever weight

Wilder looked rip by comparison and he is confident he will retain his title for a record 11th time to break the record for heavyweight defences he shares with Muhammad Ali.

Fury was cheered much more than Wilder by the audience in the Arena and the British fight fans have travelled here in their thousands to support him.

“All my fans are here to see the Gypsy King, let’s go to war!” he roared. “I’m ready to go.”

Wilder played down his weight gain and Fury’s size advantage, saying: “It really doesn’t matter at heavyweight. I’ve always had to fight bigger guys than me and his extra weight is only going to slow him down.

“Bring it on. As I said to him, don’t blink!

“I said to him he’s nervous. He’s changed his trainers, he’s dipping his hands in gasoline. I can’t wait. I told him 24 hours!”

The pair being kept apart denied fans the traditional face-off between rivals at the weigh-in, meaning they will come face to face again for the next time in the ring.

Explaining the decision to keep the duo apart, NSAC executive director Bob Bennett told ESPN: "The reason the decision was made, on behalf of the commission, is because the press conference [on Wednesday] spoke for itself.

"The actions of the two fighters pushing each other, which was not staged, is not indicative of the image of our sport as a major league sport, thus having a faceoff is not in the best interest in the health and safety of the fighters, the public and the event.

"And, quite frankly, that image, where you have two professional athletes pushing each other where somebody could get hurt, is not keeping with the image of a major league sport and we're a major league sport."
