ZHENGZHOU, China, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- A portly porker weighing in at more than 1,600 pounds was dubbed the "King of Pigs" in a Chinese contest seeking the most sizable swine.

The competition Sunday in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, ended with the massive pig, which weighs in at 1,653 pounds, being dubbed the "King of Pigs" after his size was compared to that of other big pigs.
