Photos: DeGale-Groves, Cleverly-Kuziemski Make Weight

James DeGale and George Groves have both weighed in inside the 12-stone limit [168-pounds] for their highly anticipated super-middleweight clash on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London. The duo were just an ounce apart in the weight, with Commonwealth champion Groves coming in at 11st 13lbs 7oz, while British title holder DeGale was slightly lighter at 11st 13lbs 6oz.

The pair then again went head-to-head as the animosity continues to build between the two rivals, both having had plenty to say in the build-up to the highly anticipated contest. After being parted by promoter Frank Warren both fighters left the stage, Groves claiming DeGale wouldn't last four rounds against him.

The weigh-in also gave the fans a glimpse of the WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly as he made the weight for his defence against Pole Alexy Kuziemski. Kuziemski is Cleverly's third opponent in as many days after Tony Bellew failed to make the weight and Juergen Braehmer had to withdraw with an eye injury.
