We Have A Fight: Haye/Bellew Weigh In Results

Full weigh-in results from all of tomorrow nights fights.

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

The weigh-in is done, the tense staredown complete and the talking is over. But if Haye losing to Bellew the first time out was humiliating. Then his journey to the O2 to be weighed might well have added to that. But, was this all a ploy for a final chance at mind games from the South Londoner. 

For all the money the Bermondsey man may possess, Haye elected to take public transport, namely the London underground to London's O2 arena. But so tight is the security that he was delayed, instead having to jump into a London taxi to take him to the arena ... You really couldn't make this stuff up!

It came as no surprise that the former unified cruiserweight champion of the world came in far lighter than in his last fight, half a stone lighter in fact. Haye weighing in at 15stone 10 pounds 2 oz. The big question remains as to whether Haye's body can hold it together, but only time will tell. 'The Bomber' Tony Bellew weighed in at 15 stone four ounces, a full ten pounds lighter than his opponent. This was expected. 

Can Bellew shock the world a second time and repeat his sucess in the same arena fourteen months on. Or can Haye gain revenge for the most humiliating defeat of his career? Will we see a third fight if this goes Haye's way? Only time will tell.

Undercard Weigh-In Results

It was a nightmare start for Paul Butler who looks to claim the IBF Bantamweight title tomorrow night. Although the official weight was not announced, he looked to have come in at least three pounds over the 118-pound limit. Under IBF rules he has two hours to try and shed the necessary weight. Should he fail then he will not be able to win the title. His opponent Emmanuel Rodriguez will, however, the Puerto Rican weighing in under the limit at 8 stone 5lbs 7oz.

Haye/Bellew will not be the only heavyweight contest we are treated to tomorrow night. As a familiar face to these shores puts his Commonwealth heavyweight title on the line against a rising British prospect. Lenroy Thomas, who we last saw only a few months ago in a frustrating fight against David Allen, weighed in at 16 stone 6 pounds and 2oz. His opponent and Hayemaker prodigy, Joe Joyce came in over a stone heavier at 17 stone 13 pounds 6oz. This is only Joyce's fourth professional bout and there are a few that say this fight has come too soon. But only time will tell. 

Both Jamie Cox and John Ryder are in the process of rebuilding their careers following losses to top level competition. In his second fight back after suffering a defeat to George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series quarter-final, Jamie Cox weighed in under the 168-pound limit at 11 stone 13 pounds. John Ryder is coming off of the back of an impressive stoppage victory over Patrick Nielsen last October. He weighed in at slightly less than Cox at 11 stone 12 pounds 2oz. Make sure you catch this fight ladies and gentleman as given the two men's styles I have a feeling that this could be the fight of the night!

Also on the card, Martin J Ward weighed 9st 4lbs 3oz and James Tennyson was 9st 3lbs 9oz for their bout. The Commonwealth, European and WBA International Super-Featherweight titles are on the line. Luke Campbell and Joshua Buatsi also weighed under the limits in their respective fights.
