Gavin and Vassell make weight

Frankie Gavin weighed-in spot on the welterweight limit of 147lb and Denton Vassell at 146.6 at the official weigh-in today for their epic showdown tomorrow night at the Liverpool Olympia. Birmingham star Gavin puts his British title on the line against Manchester Vassell’s Commonwealth belt. Both fighters are unbeaten in their careers and it pits Gavin’s smooth, counter-punching, skills against the come-forward, all-action, style of Vassell.

Paul Butler, the Commonwealth super-flyweight champion, and challenger Najah Ali both weighed in under for their chief-support title fight on the show.
