Burns And Relikh Make Weight

Ricky Burns successfully made weight for the first defence of his WBA junior welterweight title against Kiryl Relikh in Glasgow, Scotland on Friday night.


Burns weighed in at 9st 13;bs 2oz, while challenger weighed in at 10st at his second visit to the scales.


"Everything has went well, no injuries," Burns told Sky Sports. "Weight has gone a bit too well. I have been sitting on the weight now for the last couple of days. I’ve still been eating, so that’s why I’m smiling the day of the weigh-in.


"We’re 100 per cent ready for this. We know it’s going to be hard, but we get the win here then we look at the bigger things.


"I can’t look past this one. I’ve never done it in my career. The Broner fight could have happened October this year as well. Obviously that has fell through and we’ve decided to go down the mandatory route. But as long as I win, these things are still an option for me."


On the undercard, heavyweights Dillian Whyte and Ian Lewison weighed 18st 1lbs and 19st 7lbs respectively.


British lightweight champ Scott Cardle Kevin Hooper both weighed the 9st 9lb limit.
