Today, the weigh-in took place for the huge promotion at the Principality Stadium, in Cardiff, for the heavyweight unification clash between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker.

Entrance to the weigh-in was via ticket only, with 4,200 tickets being sold.

Ahead of the weigh-in, Eddie Hearn, talking to Sky Sports, explained that the tickets were available for a £1.

Furthermore, the £4,200 raised would be doubled and then made up to £10,000 and be given to the family of the late Scott Westgarth.

Westgarth, as you may recall, passed away on 25 February this year after sustaining injuries in a 10-round light-heavyweight bout, becoming the latest tragic statistic in what we all know is a dangerous sport.

Nice touch Eddie, nice touch.
