Anthony Joshua gives away almost a stone in weight to upcoming challenger Dominic Breazeale as the IBF heavyweight champion prepares for his first defence of the title.

The 26 year-old looked relaxed and ready to rumble with his usual ripped physique, whilst Breazeale looked a little fleshy, which is nothing new for the heavier American.

In the co-feature, Martin Murray came in at 168.1lbs for his super-middleweight clash despite his camp claiming George Groves was tight at the limit.

The St Helens man seemed unfazed by proceedings though and both boxers are ready to battle it out for a potential shot at the 168 pound world title.
