Francis Ngannou tipped the scales at almost a stone and a half heavier than Nigeria-born British boxer Anthony Joshua at a lively weigh-in for Friday’s heavyweight bout in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The former UFC heavyweight champion, competing in his second Boxing match, after nearly knocking out WBC champion Tyson Fury in his first bout, weighed in at 19st 6lb.

Two-time world champion Joshua weighed 18st as the pair rounded off what has been a civil fight week build-up.

“Official prediction? I deliver, I’m the postman,” Joshua said.

The 34-year-old dismantled Otto Wallin in Riyadh three months ago and is looking for a fourth win in the space of 11 months.

Cameroonians Ngannou comes in two pounds heavier than when he almost shocked the world in his boxing debut as he took WBC champion Tyson Fury to the wire in October.

“This is just my second boxing match, even though I am taking on the two best guys in the world in boxing,” Ngannou said.

“I am going in there to prove that you can be the underdog and make it and stand my ground.”
