Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jr both comfortably made the 160lb limit for their grudge match at the ExCel Arena in London on Saturday night.

The two British rivals, who have been embroiled in a build-up full of needle, also kept the anticipation going as neither would turn their heads at the post-weight staredown.

Eubank weighed in first sporting a pair of Superman gloves and hit the scales at 159.5lbs, whilst Saunders then followed and weighed five ounces heavier.

Saunders puts his European title on the line against Eubank this weekend in the chief support bout to the heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora.
