    American boxer Deontay Wilder believes being at his all-time heaviest is an advantage ahead of his heavyweight rematch with Brit Tyson Fury

    American boxer Deontay Wilder believes being at his all-time heaviest is an advantage ahead of his heavyweight rematch with Brit Tyson Fury


    Wilder weighed in at 104 kilograms ahead of today's tussle for the WBC heavyweight championship belt in Las Vegas.

    Although almost eight kilograms heavier than in their first bout, Wilder says it's a good sign.



    The fight's expected to get underway at 5pm.

    Their first bout in 2018 famously ended in a split decision draw.
