WBO middleweight champion (34-2-1, 24 KOs) and Billy Joe Saunders (22-0, 12 KOs) both made weight for their world title fight in Manchester on Saturday at the Manchester Arena.

Lee came in at 159.7lbs with Saunders, who looked drained, coming in at the 160lbs limit.

Saunders weighed in at a whopping 173lbs for his last fight and it makes you wonder why he’s fighting at 160lbs? So he can rehydrate and hold a weight advantage come fight night? Or perhaps because he sees more money in the middleweight division? Either way it could prove costly as he will likely run out of steam in the later rounds, he could even find himself feeling weaker and vulnerable to Lee’s vicious right hook.
