Also weighing in for the Saturday's event was Hartlepool’s Savannah Marshall, who takes on Argentina's Yanina Orozco. The 27-year-old weighed in at 11 stone 10lbs. Orozco weighed 11 stone 7lbs.

Hughie said: "It's been a hard, hard training camp but I feel good. I feel ten times stronger now than I have in the build-up to previous fights. Now I just want to get in the ring and get the job done."

Savannah said: "I'm focused and raring to go. I can't wait to get in the ring and show everyone what I can do. This is a big opportunity for me, fighting for a title. Winning here would be incredibly special."
