Ricky Burns tipped the scales at 9st 13lbs 4oz ahead of his Super-Lightweight unification fight on Saturday.

His opponent Julius Indongo, although in many respects the bigger man, came in a touch lighter at 9st 13lbs 0.25oz.

Burns appeared in high spirits ahead of what promises to be an enthralling contest, declaring “the hunger is still there and that’s what you need to drive yourself on.”

With the possibility of a money spinning match up against trash talking American Adrian Broner, Burns knows how important a win against the dangerous Namibian is.

“It’s a much tougher fight but when I sat down with my trainer … [but] we realised the rewards are much better.”

With this in mind be prepared for night of high drama.

Indongo has certainly played his part in the lead up to the fight. Never one to back down, he taunted the Coatbridge fighter by making a cut throat gesture as the two squared up for the cameras at the weigh in.

On the undercard, Charlie Edwards looks to continue his comeback from losing his first world title fight by taking local fighter Iain Butcher for the British Super Flyweight belt.

In another high profile domestic fight Scott Cardle takes on Robbie Barrett for the British Lightweight title.
