Charles Martin makes his first IBF heavyweight title defense tomorrow, going on the road in London against top prospect Anthony Joshua, who has run through his first 15 professional opponents after winning a gold medal at the 2012 Olympic games.

Today, the fighters weighed in. Martin came in at 245 pounds, with Joshua at 244. It's a bit lighter than Martin (23-0-1, 21 KO) has weighed in his last two fights, but pretty much the average for his career. It's also right on par with where Joshua has settled, after starting his pro career a little lighter.

In the co-feature from the O2 Arena, Lee Selby will defend the IBF featherweight title against mandatory challenger Eric Hunter. Selby weighed in at 125 pounds, with Philadelphia's Hunter at 125¼.

Other weights:

  • WBA bantamweight title: Jamie McDonnell, 117¼ vs Fernando Vargas, 117½
  • George Groves, 167¼ vs David Brophy, 167½
  • Matthew Macklin, 159½ vs Brian Rose 159¼
  • Ohara Davies, 134½ vs Andy Keates, 134
  • Ted Cheeseman, 153½ vs Mario Petrov, 153¼
  • Kamil Laszczyk, 127½ vs Ignac Kassai, 127¼
  • Conor Benn, 144½ vs Ivailo Boyanov, 141
