(135-Pound Bout) - Unbeaten Manchester star Murray (31-0) tipped the scales at 9st 8lbs for the big lightweight battle at the Liverpool Echo Arena (live on Sky Sports 1 HD), a pound under the limit. Mitchell (31-1) meanwhile - hoping to fully re-establish himself after that defeat by Aussie warrior Michael Katsidis last year - came in at 9st 8lb 8oz.

(130-Pound Bout) - Nicky Cook needed two trips to the scales before making the 9st 4lbs limit for his WBO world super-featherweight title challenge against Scottish star Ricky Burns. Champion Burns, making his third defence of the belt, was right on the button at 130lbs.

(175-Pound Bout) - Local hero Tony Bellew came in on the 12st 7lbs light-heavyweight limit as he prepares to face Ovill McKenzie (12st 6lbs) for the vacant British title on a quality undercard. The Commonwealth strap is also on the line.

(147-Pound Bout) - Also on the bill is hot prospect Frankie Gavin, who faces former footballer Curtis Woodhouse in a welterweight bout. Gavin was right on the 10st 7lbs limit, while Woodhouse tipped the scales at 10st 5lbs.

eeek. Doesn't look like a nailed on world champ to me anymore. He obviously doesn't belong at 147 but toiling with an average full-back is not good enough.

Frankie Gavin apparently likes the ale a little bit too much All the talent in the world but he's going to piss the talent away, literally
