At today’s official weigh in Gary Corcoran and Danny Butler both made the weight on the scales ahead of their WBO Intercontinental Junior-Middleweight showdown.
Wembley Middleweight star Corcoran and Bristol’s Butler clash tomorrow night (Friday 25th March) at the York Hall Bethnal Green.
Corcoran, gunning for his first title, hit the scales at 153.3lbs while Butler weighed in slightly lighter at 153.2lbs.
Corcoran said afterwards: “All the talking is done and now it’s time to get it on. I’ve been waiting for this fight a long time now and I’m buzzing to get in the ring. I’ve got a lot of respect for Danny but I’m expecting to win this one comfortably.”
Butler said: “Fighting away from home doesn’t bother me one bit. I’m a strong light-middleweight and quite big for this level, I feel like I can take my power down to this weight and do some damage. It’s a fight that I definitely believe I’m going to win, I wouldn’t have taken the fight if I didn’t think I could win it.”
The chief supporting bout also weighed in Chingford hotshot Tom Baker and Margate’s Jack Morris who collide for the Vacant English Light-Heavyweight Championship.
Undefeated Baker came in at 174.9lbs with Morris weighing bang-on 175lbs.
