David Haye weighed-in nearly one stone heavier than Tony Bellew as both fighters hit the scales on Friday afternoon.

Tony Bellew came in at 15st 3lbs, while the 36-year-old former heavyweight champion of the world recorded the third heaviest weight of his career at just over 16st.

Haye poked fun at his opponent's pre-fight physique, adding he felt in better shape than when he used to fight as a cruiserweight.

"I've put on some good, healthy usable muscle. My diet is actually tighter now than it was at cruiserweight," said Haye.

"Just look at him, he doesn't look like an athlete. Nine out of 10 people in the street have a better physique than he does. He's made heavyweight by eating a load of pies, I've made weight with methodical eating and training."
