Photos: Brook, Hatton Face To Face at Packed Weigh-In

Meadowhall shopping centre stood still today as Kell Brook and Matthew Hatton weighed in for tomorrow night’s War of the Roses clash at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield, live on Sky Sports 1, HD1 and in 3D.

Both men took to the scales live on Sky Sports News and made the weltreweight limit. Hatton making the weight first (10st 6lb 9oz) before Brook travelled down the escalators to a rapturous reception from his home town following as he tipped the scales at 10st 6lb 4oz.

“I am overwhelmed by the turn out today,” said Brook. “Coming down to a reception like that was just amazing, I have been buzzing for fight night for a while now and that’s given me another boost.

“I’d like to thank all the fans that turned out today and I promise them that I will make Sheffield proud tomorrow night.”

Carl Frampton provides the chief support as he defends his Commonwealth super bantamweight title against Ghanaian bantamweight king Prosper Ankrah, with Greg Proksa defending his European middleweight strap against Kerry Hope and Adnan Amar and Lee Purdy battling for the vacant English welterweight crown.

Team GB star Scotty Cardle makes his highly anticipated professional debut, exciting middleweight prospects John Ryder and Ryan Aston face tough nights with Alistair Warren and Lee Noble respectively, and the night begins with a potential barnstormer between Sheffield’s own Wayne Reed takes on Commonwealth Gold medallist Eamonn O’Kane.
