Photos/Weights: Klitschko-Leapai, Crazy Briggs Again
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Australian challenger Alex Leapai has weighed in marginally heavier than champion Wladimir Klitschko for their heavyweight title fight to be staged in Germany on Saturday.

Leapai scaled 112.5kg  (248.2-pounds) to Klitschko's 112.2kg (247.35-pounds) in the eve of fight formality, which took place at a shopping centre in Oberhausen.

Although Klitschko enjoys massive height and reach advantages, the fact he was slightly lighter didn't surprise Leapai's trainer Noel Thornberry, who predicted earlier in the week that would be the case.

And, as happened at the press conference this past Tuesday, the event was hijacked to some extent by former WBO heavyweight champion, Shannon Briggs, who once again crashed the gathering.

"You're looking fat around the sides," Briggs shouted at Klitschko when the quadruple champion was on the scales.

He offered Klitschko's trainer James Ali Bashir a million dollars and then a million Euros to switch camps and train him.

Briggs then turned his attention to Leapai, whom he described as a bum at the press conference.

"Good luck Alex, be strong tomorrow, stay strong," Briggs yelled. "Get inside and bang hard to the body."

[QUOTE=Evil_Meat]I'm sorry but Briggs' would be undefeated with all KO's just like Wilder if he had his resume. I also can almost guarantee that he would destroy Firtha much quicker than Wilder did. Briggs looks terrific until he faces a skilled boxer who he can't easily overwhelm.[/QUOTE] br...
