Alexander Ustinov holds a two stone advantage over Saturday’s opponent Tyson Fury as the huge heavyweights prepare for war at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester.

Ustinov, 37, was hastily drafted in to replace the injured Dereck Chisora this weekend and scaled a whopping 20st 5lbs (285lbs), whilst 25 year-old Fury hit the 18st 5lbs mark (257lbs) on Friday.

Billy Joe Saunders and Emanuele Blandamura also weighed in for their European middleweight title bout, with both coming in at 11st 5lbs (159lbs) and the Brit being a few ounces heavier.

Saunders’ rival Chris Eubank Jr, former world heavyweight title challenger Eddie Chambers, British light-middleweight champion Liam Smith and upcoming lightweight Terry Flanagan also appear on the stacked card.
