Tempers flare as Frampton and Avalos weigh in (photos/video)

Phil Jay 27/02/2015

Bad blood boiled over as IBF super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton and his latest challenger Chris Avalos weighed in ahead of Saturday’s world title fight in Belfast.

The pair, who has already exchanged words at a heated press conference on Thursday, continued their ill feelings as they went head-to-head at the scaling finale.

On the back of the champion making 122lbs and Avalos coming in at 121.9lbs, both squared-up in front of a baying pro-Frampton crowd as promoters and managers struggled to contain them.

As Frampton got in the challenger’s face, Avalos pushed the Irishman away before Master of Ceremonies Michael Buffer used his calming voice to tell the fighters to wait until fight night.
