According with Londolozi in kilograms:
Short tail 75-80
Tyson 80-85
Cam Pan 85-90
Dudley 65(is the youngest)
for the first 3 leopard i think you have to subtract up to 10 kilograms, perhaps because the estimate of Londolozi is optimistic.
Dudley I think is reasonable.
Xinzele is huge and has only 4 years old! Not in a couple of years will be perhaps the most impressive of all.
Mvula about 70-75 kilograms at Djuma and is reasonable cause he is impressive.
This is my opionion, also because only two or three they could credibly over 70 kilograms in the whole sabisands, also in consideration of the weights that come from the scientific from Kruger.
At the end what impresses is that despite the appearance, precisely the aspect that despite they are hypermuscular, they not going too much over or under 70kilos too, and I do not think that exceed 80.
Kashane in my opinion 68-70 kilos, not less than 65
Average colse 60 kilos

Tyson @ Phinda was 71 kilos with an empty belly(when Balme weigghed him accurately)
Frodo was probably the biggest @ Phinda with 75 kilos before he vanished(yet unpublished but Tristan Dickerson told me in a mail).
Frodo at only 2-3 years old was just 65 kilos shocking weight at this age(Balme published)
Boz male was 65 kilos with an enormous neck and well developed shoulders(Balme)
Menzi male is probably 70 plus kilos and the most territorial male @ Phinda

So some cocnclusion:
Tyson was 71 kilos with the neck circumference 4 cm learger than the widest point of his big Head!!!
A male leopard @ 65 kilos start begin a very very very very very impressive animal ;)
85 kilos is a guiness leopard and rare.
