Saturday, January 16th sees Heavyweight David Haye return to boxing after a three year layoff as he faces Mark de Mori at the O2 Arena in London.
The weigh-ins took place on Friday afternoon in London. The build-up to the fight has seen the usual trash-talking from Haye. For his part, de Mori has not been a wilting flower, and he has not been happy with the disprespect he is feeling.
Though tense, the weigh-ins were reserved, as both men met eye to eye for thirty or so seconds. The handlers gave them there space and neither flinched, but there was nothing else of note to report. The pair did not shake hands as they departed the stage.
David Haye: 227.3 lbs (16 stone, 3 pounds, 5 ounces)
Mark de Mori: 243.5 lbs (17 Stone, 5 pounds, 8 ounces)
