We have a title fight! Watch Tommy McCarthy and Bilal Laggoune weigh in and head to head

We have a European title fight.

Both Tommy McCarthy [16(8)-2(1)] and Bilal Laggoune [25(14)-1(1)-2] made weight ahead of their vacant EBU European cruiserweight title fight.

The Belgian came in half a pound under the 14st 4lbs limit weighing in at 14st 3.5lbs, while Belfast’s McCarthy although looking a lot less fleshy tipped the scales at the exact same weight.

McCarthy also looked the bigger man during the socially distanced head to head.
