Sunderland Weigh-In Photos
By Ziggy Shah: The weigh-in for the featured Saturday nights boxing from Sunderland was a dazzling affair, even more dazzling then the pink suede shoes that Frank Maloney was wearing. The star of the show however was local home favourite and Olympic Bronze Medallist, Tony Jeffries. Jeffries, who will make his second appearance as a pro at the Crowtree Leisure Centre in Sunderland, weighed in at 12st 7lbs. He seemed confident and looked relaxed as he mingled with the small crowd who attended. His German opponent, Roy Meissner arrived late.
Meissner, was not the only boxer to arrive late, it seemed as though Danny Williams also had traffic trouble, as he arrived 10 minutes late. It was an anxious wait but when he arrived he looked in great shape as he scaled 18st 10lbs. His opponent John McDermott was six pounds lighter at 18st 4lbs, expect fireworks!
European light-middleweight Champion, Jamie Moore, also looked sharp as weighed in bang on the 12st limit for his first defence against the Ukraine, Roman Dzuman, who was 8oz lighter.
European Super Bantamweight Champion, Rendall Munroe, also looked supreme as he scaled in at the limit of 8st 10lbs. Munroe is looking to add the vacant Commonwealth Super bantamweight title to his credentials, when he fights the Ghanaian, Isaac Nettey. The six-fight novice, who had tribal scars on each cheek, weighed in at 8st 8 1/2lbs.
