Kell Brook weigh in

FOR a man who has previously struggled with making weight, Kell Brook swept in beneath the welterweight limit on Friday (March 27), scaling 10st 5lbs 9oz for Saturday’s world title fight with Jo Jo Dan.

Dan, a Romanian who’s based in Canada, will challenge Brook for his IBF welterweight crown at the Motorpoint Arena in Kell’s Sheffield home town. Jo Jo smiled happily enough as he weighed in at 10st 6lbs 4oz.

At 8st 9lbs Gavin McDonnell, twin brother of Jamie McDonnell, made weight for his vacant European super-bantamweight title fight with Oleksandr Egorov, 8st 9lbs 7oz.
