Enzo Maccarinelli Weighs 178 For Friday Fight, Discusses Dropping Down (Video)

iFilm London caught up with popular former cruiserweight titlist Enzo Maccarinelli today after he weighed in for his comeback fight on Friday. Maccarinelli is making a move down to light heavyweight, and for this fight weighed in at 178 pounds. Here's the video:


Maccarinelli (32-5, 25 KO) was knocked out bad in his last fight, against Alexander Frenkel in September 2010. He's moving down to light heavy, I'm guessing, because it's about all he has left. A move up to heavyweight wasn't going to help him with his chin, and cruisers who could handle his power early and wait on him to tire eventually had a big, flashing target in front of them.

But moving down in weight at age 31 probably isn't going to be any long-term answer. It does look like they've set him up with a pure patsy here. Gyorgy Marosi (12-0, 8 KO) is absolutely tiny next to Enzo, who stands 6'4". Marosi looks like he's about 5'9" on a good day and on paper, I'm guessing the idea is that Enzo should be able to get him out quickly. The best possible scenario, I assume, is Enzo wins a couple at 175 and fights Nathan Cleverly or maybe Tony Bellew.

Maccarinelli vs Marosi will air live on BoxNation on Friday.
