Ligers and tigrons - oh my!

If a daddy lion and a momma tiger make a baby its a liger. If a boy tiger and 
a girl lion have a little one its a tigron. According to a Brit newspaper 
account grown up tigrons tend to be small at a wee 25 stone, while ligers are 
biggest cats, up to 86 stone and able to stand 12 ft tall on the hind legs. 
Do any of you paleomammalogists who works on big cats know if this is true? My 
WWII vet English correspondent wants to know.
