Carl Frampton and Chris Avalos brought the bad blood from yesterday to today's weigh-in, and both fighters made the 122-pound limit.
Carl Frampton and Chris Avalos both made weight today in Belfast, and tomorrow's IBF super bantamweight title fight is good to go. The fight will air on ITV in the United Kingdom, and Bad Left Hook will have live coverage starting at 5:50 pm EST.
Frampton (19-0, 13 KO) is making the first defense of the title he won from Kiko Martinez in September, with Avalos (25-2, 19 KO) taking his first crack at a world title.
Avalos, 25, weighed in at 121½ pounds after stripping nude, as he was a fraction over the 122-pound limit with his boxer shorts on. The 28-year-old Frampton weighed in at 122 pounds even, hitting the limit right on the mark.
An animated Avalos continued to play to the crowd and attempt to get into Frampton's head, after which Frampton held up his IBF title belt to make clear who the fight's A-side really is. Pretty standard operating procedure for a weigh-in, nothing outrageous, and it certainly got a reaction from the Frampton faithful. The Odyssey Arena should be hot tomorrow.
