All of the key fighters were on weight this morning for tomorrow's big show at Wembley Arena in London, main evented by Michael Katsidis and Ricky Burns in a lightweight 12-rounder.

Katsidis and Burns both weighed in at the lightweight limit of 135 pounds for their bout, which will be for the interim WBO title, and in theory, a shot at divisional kingpin Juan Manuel Marquez, should Marquez return to the lightweight division after his November 12 fight with Manny Pacquiao.

In the main co-feature of the bill, British super middleweight champion George Groves weighed in at 167¾, while challenger Paul Smith was at 167 pounds even, one below the divisional limit.

Also in action will be top middleweight prospect Billy Joe Saunders, who will challenge for his first professional title. Saunders came in at 159½, and Southern Area middleweight champ Gary Boulden was at 159 pounds.

Bad Left Hook will have live coverage for Katsidis vs Burns tomorrow, starting at 2 p.m. EDT.
