The weigh-in for Saturday's heavyweight title fight is over and there was a shocker... WBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz weighed in for his first tile defense at a startling 283.7 pounds! That is about 15 pounds more than he weighed in June when he captured the championships from Anthony Joshua, and Ruiz, took that fight on short notice and wasn't exactly slim at 268. Note: Ruiz stepped on the scale wearing long pants, a tank top and sneakers but did not appear to be hiding any weights in his pocket (a possible mind game). Joshua, the former champion, weighed in at 237.5, about ten pounds lighter than he weighed in June. The closest historical precedent for Ruiz's shocking weight gain is James "Buster" Douglas in 1990. Like Ruiz, Douglas had a beefy body type, but Douglas trimmed down to 231 for the chance of a lifetime against world champion Mike Tyson. Douglas and Ruiz both pulled huge upsets, but for his first defense, Douglas could not discipline himself in the same way, and also weighed in 15 pounds heavier for Evander Holyfield. Douglas wound up getting knocked out by Holyfield in the third round and his career was never the same. Will Ruiz suffer the same fate?
