Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk are set and ready to go for tomorrow’s three-belt heavyweight title clash in London, weighing in today ahead of the bout.

Joshua (24-1, 22 KO) weighed in at 240 lbs, right about where he’s been for his previous two fights, where he was 237 for the Andy Ruiz Jr rematch in Dec. 2019 and 240¾ for his win over Kubrat Pulev in Dec. 2020.

Usyk (18-0, 13 KO), the former undisputed cruiserweight champion, came in at 221, his highest weight yet as a pro. He moved up to cruiserweight in 2019, and has bumped up a few lbs each time out, going from 215 to 217¼ and now 221.

We’ll also see Lawrence Okolie (16-0, 13 KO) defend his WBO cruiserweight title for the first time against Dilan Prasovic (15-0, 12 KO). Okolie came in at 199, with Prasovic right at the limit of 200 lbs.

Former super middleweight titlist Callum Smith (27-1, 19 KO) is moving up to light heavyweight for his first bout since his one-sided loss to Canelo Alvarez in Dec. 2020, facing veteran Lenin Castillo (21-3-1, 16 KO). Both Smith and Castillo were at the 175 lb limit.

Bad Left Hook will have full live coverage tomorrow, starting at 1 pm ET, streaming live on DAZN in most territories, and airing on Sky Box Office in the United Kingdom.
