Stevenson makes weight, Bika takes two attempts (full weights/photos)
Adonis Stevenson came in at 174.4lbs for the latest defence of his WBC light heavyweight title as challenger Sakio Bika astonishingly failed to make the 175lb limit.
Despite coming up from super middleweight, Bika could only manage 175.8lbs on the scale and was given time to lose the excess poundage.
Coming back after an hour, Bika then hit a light 174.6lbs, shedding over a pound, and is now clear in his quest to become a two-weight world champion.
