All fighters made weight ahead of Saturday's big show at Rosvalla Arena in Nyköping, Sweden.
In the main event, unbeaten local favorite Erik Skoglund puts his perfect record on the line versus upset-minded Derek Edwards in a scheduled 10-round light heavyweight clash.
Skoglund (23-0, 11KOs) tipped the scales at 173.75 lbs., while. Edwards (27-5-1, 14KOs) came in slightly lighter at 172.8 lbs.
The selection of Edwards was viewed as a natural choice given the setting. Skoglund is friendly with countryman and current super middleweight titlist Badou Jack, whom Edwards stopped in one round last February in a stunning upset.
Two straight losses have since followed for the visiting American, dropping shutout decisions to Andre Dirrell and Gilberto Ramirez.
In the co-feature, unbeaten super lightweight Anthony Yigit endures his tougest test to date as faces former champ DeMarcus 'Chop Chop' Corley in an eight-round matchup of southpaw boxers.
The 25-year old Yigit (15-0-1, 6KOs) weighed in at 143.1 lbs. for his fifth fight of 2015. The always supremely conditioned Corley (42-25-1, 25KOs) - even at 41 years of age and with nearly 20 years served in the pro ranks - clocked in at a shredded 140.4 lbs.
