Brian Nielsen moons crowd
COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- Brian Nielsen showed more than his muscles at the official weigh-in with Evander Holyfield.
The Danish fighter pulled down his shorts Friday, exposing his bare backside to the audience before getting on the scale.
He says a member of the crowd had shouted he wanted "to see my white backside."
Nielsen, who is known for his clowning stunts, said: "I gave it to them. It needn't be boring."
Nielsen is scheduled to fight Holyfield Saturday in a non-title bout in Copenhagen.
Holyfield came in at 225 pounds, while Nielsen -- with his shorts back on -- weighed in at 238 pounds.
Later, the men burst into laughter when they tried to pose face-to-face before photographers with their fists raised for a fight-like pose.
