Anthony Joshua must overcome a weight disadvantage of more than three stones if he is to win back the world heavyweight title in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night.

The Watford star tipped the scales at 16 stone 13 lbs, 10 pounds lighter than his weight for his first fight with Andy Ruiz Jr. in New York in June, when he was knocked out in the seventh round.

In stark contrast Ruiz has bulked up by just over a stone to 20 stone 3 lbs for the bout which will take place at the purpose-build Diriyah Arena on the outskirts of the capital Riyadh.
