Video: Tony Bellew – Illunga Makubu Weigh-In
The pair both come inside the cruiserweight limit ahead of their WBC world title clash tomorrow night in Liverpool, UK.
Tony Bellew and Illunga Makubu will collide in the main event of 12 rounds of boxing at Everton Football Club’s stadium Goodison Park.
With Michael Buffer announcing the weigh-in ahead of this weekend’s boxing action in Liverpool, the hype is getting well and truly underway before tomorrow’s pugilistic proceedings.
Makabu weighed-in at 14 stone and a half pound, with Englishman Bellew weighing in at 14 stone 3 pounds, amid shouts of Makabu “coming in light” heard in the background.
As usual at a Tony Bellew weigh-in or press conference, there was plenty of passion exhibited and with such a big occasion of fighting in front of his hometown tomorrow, it will be interesting to see if Bellew can control his emotion.
Here is today’s weigh-in video in front of the public as shot by IFL TV:
