Oleksandr Usyk cut a formidable figure as he weighed in at just about a career heaviest, while Anthony Joshua also flexed added bulk ahead of Saturday’s world heavyweight title rematch.
The Ukrainian came in at 15st, 11lb and 10oz having weighed a then career heaviest 15st 11lbs (221lbs) when he beat Joshua to clinch the IBF, WBA and WBO belts at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.
Joshua, who had entered the first meeting 17st 2lbs (240lbs), also built on his previous weight as he came in 17st, 6lbs and 8oz.
