Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) and Derek Chisora (32-9, 23 KOs) have both made weight for their Saturday bout, Sky Sports reports.

Chisora weighed in at 254.8 pounds (115,6 kg). Usyk, in turn, came way lighter - he showed 217 pounds (98,4 kg).

The boxers had an epic face-off afterward: Chisora was saying something right in Oleksandr's face while the Ukrainian fighter was just looking in the eyes of his opponent.

As we reported earlier, Chisora believes that the recent loss of Vasyl Lomachenko has showcased potential problems that Usyk might face in their upcoming bout.

"I do not know, because you have to understand Lomachenko thrives on boxing behind a crowd and stuff like that. This time he boxed behind about 25 people. By the time he realised it was happening, he was losing the fight, and I think me and Oleksandr, we like the crowd as well. We are going to have to find another way of boosting ourselves up when it is the later rounds, the money rounds," he said.

Nevertheless, the Brit will be pushing the pace starting from the first second of the fight.
