THE weigh in for Josh Warrington’s IBF featherweight world title defence against Kid Galahad finished with ugly scenes as the fighters had to be pulled apart.

Loudly jeered by Warrington’s supporters, Galahad had to strip to weigh in at 8st 13lbs 12oz. Warrington was 8st 13lbs 8oz. He pressed his forehead into Galahad at the face off and the two agitated fighters had to be held back, while the crowd heckled Galahad harshly.

Previously Warrington said, “I have known Barry [Galahad] from the amateur days [when Warrington beat him twice]. I can even remember speaking to him at the Boxing Writers’ Club dinner in 2014 when we both nominated for young fighter of the year and he was right as rain.”
