WATCH: Jay Byrne v Anthony Fowler weigh-in and head-to-head


Jay Byrne [5(1)-2(0)] weighed in this afternoon in Liverpool ahead of his third big Sky Sports fight.

The Dubliner takes on Rio Olympian Anthony Fowler [2(2)-0] in a six-round light middleweight (154lbs) bout at the Echo Arena.

It’s a third fight on a Matchroom card for Byrne who also extended Felix Cash and another Olympian in Josh Kelly the six-round distance earlier this year.

Byrne comes into the fight in the best shape of his career under new trainer Declan Geraghty Sr, and tipped the scales today at 156.1lbs

Fowler came in slightly heavier at 156.5lbs.

The pair then went head-to-head and, while Byrne got slightly under the Englishman’s skin in the build up, it was a respectful face-off.
