Cruiserweight rivals Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverly weighed in on Friday as the two former opponents ready themselves to fight separate bouts in Liverpool on Saturday night.

Bellew faces Julio Cesar Dos Santos on top billing at the Echo Arena, whilst Clevery co-features against Alejandro Valori and will surely be in for a hostile reception from the Merseyside crowd.

The Welshman defeated ‘The Bomber’ via a close decision in 2011 to retain his WBO light-heavyweight title, although both have since suffered setbacks and moved up to 200lbs.

Matchroom Promoter Eddie Hearn is keen to pit the two together again at the same venue in November and there can be no slip-ups when Bellew and Cleverly take to the ring this weekend.

Also hitting the scales where Rocky Fielding, who fights Noe Gonzalez, Anthony Joshua and his foe Matt Skelton, whilst Callum Smith and Vladine Biosse made weight for their super-middleweight clash,

Amatuer stars Anthony Ogogo, Luke Campbell and Gamal Yafai also make an appearance, whilst world-rated super-featherweight Stephen Smith ticks over against Pedro Navarette in an eight-rounder.

Bellew v Dos Santos and Cleverly v Valori are live on Sky Sports 1 HD in the UK from 7pm BST on Saturday.
