  1. Big weights...

    Wilder v Fury

    Those weights are thought provoking.

    Deontay Wilder at 231lbs. The heaviest of his career.

    Tyson Fury at 273lbs. That’s the heaviest he’s been since his first fight after returning to boxing back in the summer of 2018.

    No one expected either man to be so heavy. Has Fury trained well? Has Wilder got even more power?

    Who knows?

    For now, thank you for joining us and enjoy the fight!

  2. Weighed in and angry...

    Wilder Fury

    There will be no face off but the best bit is that these two are separated by those line dividers you see in banks. You know the ones you form an orderly queue within.

    Fury points a gesture in Wilder’s direction. Let’s just say it wasn’t a nice one.

  3. Post update

    Tyson Fury weighs in at 273lbs.

    Deontay Wilder, booed when he hit the stage, is tensing his muscles on the scales and hits 231lbs.

  4. Post update

    Here we go. Fury on his way. Huge roars and camera lights everywhere...

  5. 'Wilder has learned'

    Wilder v Fury

    Mike Costello

    BBC Sport boxing correspondent in Las Vegas

    I have been coming here 25 years and I have never seen this kind of investment into the building of hype of a pay-per-view fight.

    I think Deontay Wilder has learned from the first fight and will be better at closing the space this time. I don't know when he will catch up with Fury but I think he will.

  6. This is a warning!

    I’m in Las Vegas with BBC Sport’s Alex Gulrajani and he’s captured a big fight week learning.

    Basically, you spend the day jumping out of your skin time and again when Wilder shouts this...

  7. Only big boys left...

    Wilder v Fury

    Luke Reddy

    BBC Sport in Las Vegas

    The undercard fighters have nearly been weighed in.

    The fighters who need to be under a set limit are done.

    I can get my chocolate out now and not fear one of the hungry types losing their box with me.

  8. Gently does it...

    Wilder v Fury

    Luke Reddy

    BBC Sport in Las Vegas

    There’s a gentle murmur in the arena.

    I actually like this. Don’t go too big too early.

    When the big dudes hit the stage it should get insanely lively.

    A recap...

    Fury weighed in 254lbs for his last fight. His own father said it was way too light. Expect him to be bigger. He’s had a chef living with him for the first time.

    Wilder was 212lb when he fought Fury last time. That was too light for him too really, so expect a bit more bulk.

    Those are the kind of numbers we are looking at.

  9. Shining Broner

    The great and the good of boxing are in town.

    Former world champion Adrien Broner rolled in and his shining gold medal acted like a magnet for media.

    He was then grabbed by another former world champion Timothy Bradley, who demanded Broner start chasing bigger fights.

    Broner told me he knows this is a huge event purely because of the ticket prices he’s been quoted.

    You can go online and get one of the few left for around £350 and they range up to £10,000 for a resale ticket.

  10. How many words?

  11. A lot of talking is nearly over...

    Wilder v Fury

    Luke Reddy

    BBC Sport in Las Vegas

    Wilder v Fury

    We wait.

    This week has seen Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder do more media than I have ever seen any sportsman or woman do. It has been truly remarkable.

    “Hey Tyson, can I get a shout out for your fans in Australia.”

    “Hey Deontay, what message you got for your fans in Sweden.”

    And so it goes on.

    Once this weigh in is done they’ll be relieved to know the talking stops.

  12. Treadmill tricks

    Wilder v Fury

    Luke Reddy

    BBC Sport in Las Vegas

    This week I’ve popped to the hotel gym and trained behind Wilder’s trainer Jay Deas and on the treadmill next to the heavyweight champion’s brother Marsellos.

    Take a look at his whacky use of the treadmill.

  13. Yo Terence...

    Wilder v Fury

    Luke Reddy

    BBC Sport in Las Vegas

    I’m currently stood next to Terence Crawford.

    To look at him you wouldn’t think he was one of the finest pound-for-pound boxers on the planet.

    I won’t be telling him that of course.

  14. Lights out?

    Wilder v Fury

    David Haye: I've played it over in my head so many different times. My heart and gut just sway to Wilder's punch power. I think that knockout shot will land on Fury.

    Carl Froch: I'd say Fury on points. I do not like the talk of him knocking Wilder out. He would have to stand in range and to do that you can get clipped on the chin. If you do with Wilder it's lights out. I think Fury's talk of taking Wilder on at his own game is a smokescreen.

    Sugar Ray Leonard: I know that Fury has excellent boxing abilities and a tremendous chin from the way that he got up from the two knockdowns in their previous fight. In the end, I think that Wilder is always in shape and that he will use his speed and power to get the job done.

    .
  15. Packed all over...

    Wilder v Fury

    BBC Sport in Las Vegas

    Wilder v Fury

    This section of seating in front of the stage is packed with only media and former fighters.

    Behind them sits row after row of cameras and on either side you have fans decked in colours.

    Things have hit a lull. We know Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are back stage, it’s just a case of waiting.

    I’d say 15 minutes tops.

  16. Now that’s history

    Ali and arum

    I’ve kept this one for a scrapbook.

    We’ve been lucky enough to interview promoter Bob Arum time and again but the 88 year old allows us into his office this week.

    He showed me his Louis Vuitton punchbag, the matching gloves and of course the pictures that fill wall after wall of a certain Muhammad Ali.

    This picture has the message: “To Muhammad, the one who made it possible. All my love, Bob.”

    Arum, who is now with Tyson Fury, promoted close to 30 Ali fights.

    Now that’s history.

  17. Bob is bobbing

    Wilder v Fury

    Kell Brook in the house.

    Joe Joyce in the house.

    Evander Holyfield in the house.

    Lennox Lewis in the house.

    Bob Arum on stage, 88 years of age, bobbing his head to R&B.

  18. Who's going to win?

    Wilder v Fury

    .

    Manny Pacquiao: Never bet against a puncher, particularly one like Wilder. I look at him like I do at a Mike Tyson, another puncher. I see Wilder winning this rematch by 10th-round knockout.

    Anthony Joshua told Pep Talk UK: I hope Fury wins. I think the man that nearly did it the first time won't get it wrong the second time. He came so close, to the point of a draw, so I think Fury will come back and win.

    Larry Holmes: Wilder will knock out Fury in the seventh or eighth round if he does what I know that he can do, which is stay on the outside, use his jab and throw that right hand over the jab.

  19. A proper fight week...

    Wilder v Fury

    Fury v wilder

    This gent has brought a glove and had it signed by countless fighters already.

    “You run into everyone,” he says.

    Some Brits tell me they were with Lennox Lewis last night. I hope it wasn’t a tribute act version.

  20. 'Fury to win on points'

    Wilder v Fury

    Steve Bunce

    BBC Radio 5 Live boxing pundit in Las Vegas

    Two unbeaten men, elite versus elite. Let's not lose the fact we are seeing something we don't often see. This is a monster.

    I think we will see a bit more boxing from Deontay Wilder and a far more aggressive Tyson Fury. I don't think either of those changes will last. I believe Fury survives rocky moments and wins on points. And yes, it will be controversial."
