Brant and Baysangurov make weight
Rob Brant (24-1, 16 KOs) and Hassan Baysangurov (17-0, 7 KOs) easily met the weight limit at the official weigh-in ceremony before the evening of boxing from the Top Rank promotional company in Hinckley, Minnesota. Brant's weight was 71.9 kg, Baysangurov was 72 kg. "Regular" WBA middleweight title will be at stake in the bout, owned by the American.
Brant last boxed in October, when he quite unexpectedly beat on points Ryota Murata and took away his championship belt.
For Baysangurov, this will certainly be the most difficult fight in his professional career. The 21-year-old Chechen boxer, who lives and fights in Ukraine, also held his last bout in October.
In the US the fight will be broadcasted on ESPN.
