Weigh-in: Saunders-Hall



British and Commonwealth Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders and challenger Matthew Hall both weighed in today for their fight tomorrow night (Thursday 21st March) at London’s York Hall.

Hatfield ace Saunders hit the scales at 11st 5lbs 7 1/2oz, while Manchester star Hall came in at 11st 5lbs 1/4oz.

The fight will be televised live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546) with live coverage starting at 7pm.

Saunders, making the first defence of his British title and fourth Commonwealth defence, said, “It’s fight time, I can’t wait to get in the ring tomorrow night. My training’s gone perfect, the weight’s great and now I’m ready to fight. Hall’s got the experience, but I’m ready to put on the best performance of my career yet.”

Hall, a former Commonwealth Champion at light-middleweight, said, “Saunders is a good champion, but I’ve prepared hard and now I’ve got to do the business in the ring tomorrow night. I fight best when my back’s up against the wall and I’m looking forward to fighting Saunders in his backyard.”

Southern Area Welterweight Champion Bradley Skeete and challenger Peter McDonagh both weighed in at 10st 6 1/2lbs for their fight which features as chief-support on the card.
