All eight fighters involved in title fights on tomorrow night's Eddie Hearn-promoted bill have made weight and are ready for action. The show takes place at Liverpool’s Echo Arena and features a slew of local fighters.
Liverpool native Callum Smith (18-0, 13 KOs) headlines the show, he meets France’s Hadillah Mohoumadi (20-3-1, 15 early) for the EBU 168lbs title. Smith came in at 11st 13lbs 8oz; his opponent hit 11st 10lbs 7oz (weights courtesy of British Boxing Blog [@Britboxingblog] and Matchroom’s Anthony Leaver) so both fighters are good to go.
The main event's three scoring officials have been named as Jürgen Langos, Daniel Van de Wiele and Anssi Perajoki. Spain’s Francisco Alloza Rosa is the third man.
Smith’s gym mate Scott Cardle (19-0, 6 stoppages) weighed 9st 8½lbs for his British lightweight title rematch with local man Sean Dodd (10-2, 2 KOs), who hit 9st 7½lbs and hopes to avenge his 12th-round TKO loss from November’s exciting first encounter.
Rocky Fielding (21-1, 12 KOs) returns to action for the first time since losing to Smith via a first-round TKO reverse. The Scouser tipped the scales at 11st 13lbs 8oz, he meets experienced Frenchman Christopher Rebrasse (24-4-3, 6 early) for the vacant International WBC belt as he bids to get back to winning ways. The visitor scaled 11st 13lbs 2oz.
Wales's Tom Doran (16-0, 6) came in without any problems for his vacant WBC International title fight with Dublin's Luke Keeler (10-1, 5 early), who he beat in Prizefighter: The Middleweights last year—they weighed 11st 4lbs 4oz and 11st 5lbs 8oz respectively to ensure a clean sweep.
