The talking is done, the weigh in is over, all that remains is for Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Smith to go head to head in the ring tomorrow night.
Both men tipped the scales at 159lbs, comfortably making the 160lb weight limit.
Eubank wore a rainbow armband after some unsavoury comments at yesterday’s heated press conference.
It’s Smith’s first official fight up at the middleweight limit, however he was weighed in close to that for previous contests and is confident that he’ll be the bigger man on the night despite Eubank’s entire professional campaign being fought here or heavier.
A lengthy face-off was the final note in a tense build up to the domestic scrap. The back and forth had threatened to turn personal throughout, and it did just that at the press conference.
With Sky forced to apologise for some of the language used on Smith’s part, it’s clear now that everybody involved just wants to hear the first bell now.
You can watch the full card weigh in below on Sky Sports Boxing YouTube:
A victory for Smith – the bookies’ underdog – will give Eubank the right to enact a rematch clause, and he’s been open about targetting his city’s home stadium, Anfield, as the host.
The man in the other corner, though, has no intentions of doing this twice. Supremely confident is an understatement Brighton’s Eubank, and he’s already been discussing future fights with Gennadiy Golovkin and Conor Benn before making his ring walk.
