All four fighters competing in the World Boxing Super Series semifinals later today have successfully made weight.
That doesn't mean that there was a lack of drama at the weigh-ins the day before. Josh Taylor, who is challenging for Ivan Baranchyk's IBF junior welterweight title, came in a little more than one pound over the limit on his first attempt. But after being given two hours to drop the excess weight, Taylor came in at the championship limit of 140 pounds. As for the rest of the fighters in tournament action, Baranchyk and unbeaten bantamweights Naoya Inoue and Emmanuel Rodriguez had no issues with their weigh-ins, coming in within a half-pound under their respective weight limit.
Below are the weigh-in results for the two World Boxing Super Series fights taking place at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland:
World Boxing Super Series Junior Welterweight Tournament Semifinals/IBF World Title (140-pound limit):
- Ivan Baranchyk (IBF champion): 139.6 lbs
