Ricardo Blas Jr is not to be messed with

JUMBO-SIZED Ricardo Blas Jr looks like a heavyweight contender for a gold medal.
The judo giant representing the tiny island of Guam at the Olympics tips the scales at a whopping 35st 5Ibs.
Beefy Blas is more than 10 stone heavier than any other athlete in the Olympics and 6st 10lbs heavier than the entire Japan women's gymnastics team.
He defeated rival Facinet Keita of Guinea, who weighs an impressive 21 stones to make the last 16 in the +100kg category.
But his Olympic campaign ended in disappointment after losing to a Cuban fighter - who was half his weight.
