According to TMZ, Broner was previously told he was not allowed to visit the MGM Grand owing to a prior incident, but attended the weigh-in regardless.
It’s claimed he was asked to leave the arena, but refused and so was detained by security until police arrived.
The understanding is that Broner will be taken to the county jail, processed and released with a ‘misdemeanor trespassing citation’.
As for the weigh-in itself, the challenger stepped onto the scales first and came in at 273lbs (19st 7lbs).
The champion followed up at 231lbs (16st 7lbs).
For the first fight, Wilder scaled 212½lbs (15st 2lbs 8oz) – he is therefore 18½lbs heavier this time around.
Meanwhile, Fury weighed in for the first fight at 256½lbs (18st 4lbs 8oz) – so he is 16½lbs heavier.
