Daniel Dubois weighed in two stone heavier than late-replacement Ricardo Snijders ahead of their WBO international Heavyweight clash on Saturday on BT Sport.
Dubois (14-0, 13 KOs), who fights for the first time since knocking out Kyotaro Fujimoto in two rounds in December, tipped the scales at 17st 6lbs, over two stone heavier than Dutchman Snijders (18-1, 8 KOs) who came in at 15st 5lbs.
Victory for ‘Dynamite’ at BT Sport Studio will ensure a rescheduled British, Commonwealth and European title showdown with Joe Joyce on October 24, which has been postponed twice as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sunny Edwards (14-0, 4 KOs) weighed inside the Super-Flyweight limit at 8st 2lbs 7oz ahead of his IBF International title fight with former Olympian Thomas Essomba (10-5, 4 KOs), who weighed slightly lighter at 8st 2lbs 2oz.
Frank Warren told Pro Boxing Fans on Tuesday he would look to make a world title fight for Edwards should he prevail against the Cameroonian, former Commonwealth Flyweight champion.
Sam Maxwell (13-0, 11 KOs) weighed in just an oz heavier than former European champion Joe Hughes (17-5-1, 7 KOs) at 9st 13lbs 1oz ahead of Maxwell’s first WBO European Super-Lightweight title defence.
Elsewhere, Willy Hutchinson (11-0, 7 KOs) who will fight on the undercard of Josh Taylor’s unified world Super-Lightweight title defence against Apinun Khongsong on September 26, should he beat Ben Thomas on Saturday, who came in at 12st 5lbs 4oz, whilst his opponent tipped the scales at 12st 7lbs 7oz.
