Joshua weighs in much heavier than Usyk ahead of title fight

LONDON (AP) So much for Anthony Joshua slimming down to counter the speed of Oleksandr Usyk in their world heavyweight title fight.

Joshua, who is defending his WBA, IBF and WBO belts against Usyk on Saturday, tipped the scales at 240 pounds (109kg) at the weigh-in in London on Friday. That's the same as he was for his last fight, against Kubrat Pulev in December.

"I don't really watch my weight. I don't know why there is a big thing about weight," Joshua said. "Maybe because we are heavyweights so people look at us at our heaviest."
