A shock occurred at the weigh in today as IBF super-featherweight champion Gervonta Davis failed his first attempt to make weight ahead of tomorrow’s world title fight with Liam Walsh at the Copperbox in London.
Davis looked surprised, then confused staring at the scales as he came in over the limit. He conferred with the officials around him. He stripped his shorts off to try again but was just two ounces over. He had two hours to lose that.
