Today saw the weigh in of all the fighters who will appear on tomorrow night stacked card in Manchester.
All fighters made weight and there were no issues surrounding that. There were no repeats of what happened on Tuesday at the Whyte Chisora press conference.
After the incident on Wednesday Whyte and Chisora weighed in separately. Chisora weighed in 1 hour before Whyte so the pair did not meet. There was obviously no face-off as this would have most likely ended in trouble. Chisora said referring to Dillian Whyte “He’s the donkey, and I’m going to be riding him”. Throughout the press conference and the gloves are off both traded insults which included him calling Whyte a donkey. Chisora also said “Shoutout to Eddie Hearn he caught the bill, he paid the thirty five large for me”. I think this shows that, as Hearn paid for Chisora’s £35,000 fine, he feels that his boxer (Whyte) was in the wrong, as he provoked him.
Joshua and Molina had their weight and face off. Molina came in at 16 stone 13 pounds and Joshua 17 stone 12 pounds. Even though he came in heavier, AJ is 2 inches taller than Molina and looked a lot more conditioned and muscular than Molina. Joshua and Molina had their face off which ended with a handshake which shows even though they will both be trying to punch each other tomorrow night, they respect each other.
Everything is completed now. All is set for tomorrow night. This is going to be a big day of boxing with AJ vs Molina and the undercard for that bout. And also at 10am UK time Joseph Parker will be fighting Andy Ruiz for the vacant WBO heavyweight title.
