Tyson Fury massively out-weighed Tom Schwarz on Friday evening at the official scaling for the Briton’s Las Vegas debut.

Fury came in seven pounds heavier than for his clash with Deontay Wilder in December, despite looking considerably sleeker.

Muscle mass has obviously replaced the previous fat Fury put on during his time away. Fury scales a huge 263 pounds, 18 higher than the German.

It’s the second bulkiest Fury has weighed since hitting over 270 pounds in 2014.

The former lineal heavyweight champion is in a far better place with his career and was in exceptional shape considering his past struggles.

Schwarz seemed unfazed by the situation he’s involved in but remains a complete underdog.
