Lewis Ritson was in great shape on the scales as he weighed in ahead of his battle with Dejan Zlaticanin on Friday night.

Ritson takes on Zlaticanin in the main event of a show at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle, and will be broadcast live on Eurosport.

The weigh-in took place on Thursday, with Ritson (22-2, 13 KOs) coming in at 10st, while Zlaticanin (24-3, 16 KOs) was slightly lighter at 9st 13lbs.

“I’m very excited and it’s going to be bouncing in there on Friday. The atmosphere will be unreal and I’m ready to get the job done," Ritson said.

“It’s going to be a good night for the North East. Dejan is a tough fighter, so I will have to be on my game. I’ll bring my best and get that win and get people talking about me again.

“Ohara Davies is a plum, I’m not interested in him right now. I’ll get past Friday then I’ll have my eyes on him. He can keep doing what he’s doing, and I’ll get the job done on Friday.”

Elsewhere on the card, Troy Williamson (17-0-1, 13 KOs) returns to action, as he makes the first defence of his British super-welterweight title against Mason Cartwright (17-2-1, 7 KOs).

Williamson was ripped and ready as he weighed in bang on the limit of 11st, with Cartwright tipping the scales at 10st 13lbs 12oz.

Thomas Patrick Ward (31-0-1, 4 KOs) can move one step closer to a world title shot, going up against Alexis Kabore (29-5, 8 KOs). Ward weighed 9st 3lbs, and Kabore was 8st 13lbs.

Mark Dickinson (2-0, 1 KO) looks to extend his unbeaten record when he meets Peter Kramer (11-4-3, 8 KOs). Dickinson weighed 11st 8lbs, and Kramer was 11st 6lbs.

Rounding up the card in Newcastle, the always-popular Joe Laws meets Alexey Tukhtarov, and local favourite Joe Maphosa faces Santiago Eusibio.
