Weights From Manchester: Quigg 121.8, Martinez 121.6

By Terence Dooley 
 
The eight fighters involved in title action on Eddie Hearn’s “High Stakes” bill at the Manchester Arena all hit the scales and their weight targets during today’s weigh-in. 
 
Bury’s Scott Quigg (30-0-2, 22 early) came in at 8st 9lbs 12oz for his WBA World Super bantamweight defence against former IBF titlist Kiko Martinez (32-5, 24 KOs).  Spain’s Martinez weighed 8st 9lbs 10oz for his latest title crack.
 
Next up was WBA World lightweight holder Darleys Perez (31-1, 20 stoppages); the Colombian weighed in at 9st 8lbs 8oz for his defence against Manchester’s Anthony Crolla (29-4-2, 11 KOs).  The challenger weighed exactly the same.
 
There is a brace of British title fights on the bill.  Birmingham's Sam Eggington (15-2, 9 KOs) weighed 10st 6lbs 12oz for his vacant welterweight title meeting with Sunderland's Glenn Foot (15-0, 6 early), who came in slightly lighter at 10st 5lbs 8oz.  Eggington's Commonwealth title will also be on the line. 
 
Huddersfield Tyrone Nurse (31-2, 6 stoppages) and Swansea's Chris Jenkins (16-0, 8 KOs) contest the vacant light-weltweight title.  Nurse came in at 9st 13lbs 8oz to Jenkins’s 9st 13lbs.
