Boxing fans have been left both amused and perplexed after watching Roman Fury weigh in for the second professional fight of his career.
The brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury took to the scales on Thursday before facing off with his opponent, 38-year-old Georgian Erik Nazaryan.
Fury, standing at 6ft 2ins, towered over the weathered veteran and fans were quick to take to social media to mock his choice of opponent.

Replying to the video, viewers compared Nazaryan to Stavros Flately and Minty off Eastenders.
Others were even more harsh, likening him to a beer seller and even a tomato can.
Many also joked that it was almost impossible to tell which one was actually a Fury.
One tweeted: ‘the thing about John Fury’s DNA make up is that either one could be his son’ while another wrote ‘I genuinely don’t know which one is his brother, both could easily pass it’.
