Today, at the Hilton Hotel, Liverpool, Frank Warren hosted the official weigh-in ahead of tomorrow night’s mouth-watering fight-night at the Echo Arena.

The Main event sees Ricky Burns face Nicky Cook for the WBO Super-Featherweight Title and – due to the postponement of last weeks show – John Murray faces Kevin Mitchell for the vacant WBO Inter-Continental Lightweight Title.

Ricky Burns (Coatbridge, Scotland) weighed in at 9 stone 4 lbs. Nicky Cook of Dagenham, was over at the first weigh-in but came back within half an hour to weigh in at 9 stone 4 lbs.

John Murray of Manchester weighed in at 9 stone 8 lbs, while Kevin Mitchell of Dagenham, came in just half a pound heavier at 9 stone 8 and a half pounds.

Two other Title fights on Saturday sees the rematch (and two light-heavyweight Titles) between Tony Bellew of Liverpool and Ovill McKenzie of Derby. Surprisingly there were no outbursts today between these two ! A quiet, cool looking Bellew tipped the scales at 12 stone 6 and a half pounds, while McKenzie came at 12 stone 6 lbs.

And finally, Frankie Gavin (Birmingham) faces Curtis Woodhouse of Driffield, Yorkshire, for the WBO Inter-Continental Welterweight Title. There was some aggression to be seen from Frankie Gavin who tore over to Woodhouse – shoving his head against his opponents (!) The pair were kept separate after that!

Gavin weighed 10 stone 7 lbs, while Woodhouse came in at 10 stone 5 lbs.
