Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker weigh in ahead of their hotly anticipated heavyweight clash tomorrow night – and both men come in with the heaviest weights to date.
Joyce hit the weight class with the mammoth 271 and ¼ lbs – almost 19 and a half balls. Parker is also the highest weight class of his professional career to date, despite still being a stone lighter than Joyce at just over 255lbs.
While there was no shoving and shoving, the two exchanged onstage and both created an intense aura, with the WBO title temporarily held between them.
If the numbers on the scale continue, we can expect both men to enter the contest with plans to end it soon.
It’s time for the heavyweights to take down 😤 #JoyceParker

International superstar Amando Serrano looks in great shape as she returns to what she feels is her optimal weight of 126lbs, with rival Sarah Mafhoud also hitting a good champion weight, helping for the final that precedes their three-belt unification fight tomorrow.
Ekow Essuman and Samuel Antwi both looked strong on the scales as they hit the 147lb limit, with Essuman’s Commonwealth and British titles in a fight that many pundits felt could rob the Manchester Arena performance.
The last box has now been ticked, and one of the highlights of the domestic fall schedule is that all the systems are going tomorrow night. With pundits and fans split between the main event, the only thing agreed upon is that the contest has the potential to become one of the fights of the year.
