On Friday afternoon in Marbella, Spain, the weigh-in took place for a breezy card tomorrow night, in the Andalusian town.
In the main event will see a clash between former WBC Latino champion Kerman Lejarraga and Tyrone Nurse from the UK.
The bout will be held at the super welterweight (154 pounds) limit as stipulated. The organizers weren’t in stitches, as Nurse was initially 1 pound over…but not out, because after doing some exercises he returned, warding off any criticism, to make the division limit.
Lejarraga is hoping the win will place him one step further to resume his position to challenge for a world title at the weight.
Nurse believes that he still has the skills, the defense and the proper movement to outbox the feared puncher.
The rest of the fights will feature attractive matches including the European Union super featherweight championship fight between John Carter and Ibon Larrinaga, a former WBC Mediterranean champion. And the participation of prospects Samuel Molina, who will face Rubén García, at the Marbella Arena.
Ricky Pow attended the event as the representative for the World Boxing Council.
