The main event fighters all hit the scales in Liverpool this afternoon ahead of tomorrow’s Eddie Hearn-promoted show at the city’s Echo Arena.
Rocky Fielding (20-0, 11 early) weighed 11st 13lbs for his vacant International WBC Super middleweight title fight against America's Brian Vera (23-9, 14 KOs), who weighed 12st exactly.
Fielding’s fellow Liverpudlian Super middleweight contender Callum Smith (16-0, 12 KOs) weighed 11st 13lbs for his showdown with Christopher Rebrasse (23-3-3, 6 stoppages), the Frenchman was 11st 13lbs 12oz—they will vie for the vacant WBC Silver 168lb belt
Tony Bellew (23-2-1, 14 KOs) hit 14st 7lbs and Croatia's Ivica Bacurin (22-7-1, 12 stoppages) was slightly heavier, weighing in at 14st 7lbs 8oz for their 10-threes non-title fight, with a weight limit of 14st 8lbs agreed in advance by both teams.
Martin Murray (29-2-1, 12) plans to campaign at Super middleweight, he came in at 12st 4lbs 4oz for his eight-threes against Georgia's George Beroshelvi (19-5-2, 12 KOs), the visitor came in at 11st 13lbs—again, the weights were mutually agreed in advance as is the norm for non-title undercard fights here in the U.K.
