It was a controversial weight-in ahead of Saturday night’s WBO welterweight tussle between Jeff Horn and Terence Crawford at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

All went smooth until America’s Crawford hit the scales at 146 ½ – well under the 147-pound limit – before Horn came it at 148 in his first attempt.

The Australian then stripped naked, but, at 147 ½, was still over the limit, receiving an hour’s time to lose the excess.

He returned in about 40 minutes after taking hot shower, and weighed in at the exactly 147 pounds.

Had he not made the limit, he would have been stripped of his belt.

Horn, however, had foul play to blame. “I knew this was coming. I think there was a bit of tricks up their sleeve with this one, because he was just underweight and I was just over,” he said.

Time to let punches do the talking!
