Everyone was on weight in London today for tomorrow's show at the O2 Arena on Sky Box Office (UK) and Epix/EpixHD.com (US).

The makeshift main event -- or at least final fight of the show -- between Nathan Cleverly and Aleksy Kuziemski saw both fighters tuck in under the light heavyweight limit at 174¾ pounds. Cleverly (21-0, 10 KO) is facing Kuziemski (21-2, 5 KO) on very short notice after Juergen Braehmer bailed on the fight on Wednesday. Tony Bellew was inserted into the mix, but yesterday had some weight issues, and Kuziemski took the slot. It is, to say the least, a far lesser fight than was originally advertised.

But the show's saving grace and at this point true main event is the British super middleweight title grudge fight between prospects James "Chunky" DeGale and "Saint" George Groves. Both were a half-pound under the super middleweight limit at 167½ pounds.

In other action, top welterweight prospect Frankie Gavin faces Young Mutley. Both weighed in at the division limit of 147 pounds, though Mutley took two tries.

Bad Left Hook will have live coverage tomorrow starting at 3 p.m. EDT from the Sky Box Office feed.
