Despite a scales drama threatening to break out, Nikita Tszyu and Dylan Biggs both made weight ahead of their blockbuster clash on Wednesday.
Prior to the weigh-ins kicking off, a second set of scales was brought on stage and sparked intense discussions from a number of figures.
Biggs’ manager Brendon Smith stated on Monday he just wanted to “ensure everything is done correctly”, which perhaps explains the chaotic scenes that The Courier Mail’s Peter Badel branded as “farcical.”
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen this in boxing, where you’ve got two sets of scales.
“You’ve got some concerns around the integrity of the event given they feel they’ve been stitched up over the walk outs.
“I think it’s farcical to have two sets of scales. There’s $4000 scales up there from No Limit and can do the job.
“But the Biggs team want to have quality and accuracy. We can’t have any debate if there's two sets of scales up there.”
Thankfully both fighters made weight comfortably as Tszyu tipped the scales at 69.60kg while Biggs weighed in at 69.46kg.
Dylan Biggs: “The time for talking is done. t’s fight time, so I’m ready. There’s nothing that he can do to take that strap off of me!”
Nikita Tszyu: “It means everything for me. It’s where my life and focus has lead up to.”
