Billy Joe Saunders vs. Shefat Isufi Weigh-In Results: Saunders Makes Weight For Title Fight

There are no issues with the main event of tomorrow's Frank Warren-promoted card from Lamex Stadium.

The WBO super middleweight title fight between Billy Joe Saunders and Shefat Isufi will proceed as planned after both fighters successfully made weight at the weigh-ins. There was, however, a heated moment when both fighters had their face-off. After Saunders said some words to Isufi, both fighters had to be separated, but not before Saunders gave his opponent a slight slap on the cheek.
