David Haye and Mark De Mori hit the scales earlier today for tomorrow's main event at the O2 Arena in London, with Haye coming in substantially heavier than he usually has in the past.
Haye, 35, is fighting for the first time in three and a half years, and weighed in at 227¼ pounds, the highest of his career. In six fights after moving from cruiserweight to heavyweight in 2008, Haye has weighed in at 215, 217, 222, 210½, 210½, and 210, and one can see that he's clearly carrying more bulk than normal.
Whether or not this will affect Haye's speed and movement remains to be seen, of course, but even heavier he'll probably move better than the bulkier Mark De Mori (30-1-2, 26 KO), who came in at 243½, which is right about normal for him in his most recent fights.
BLH will have live coverage of Haye-De Mori starting tomorrow at 4 pm EST, with the show available in the United Kingdom on Dave, and streaming worldwide on YouTube, as well.
