Chris Eubank Jr’s opponent Arthur Abraham was over the limit at today’s weigh-in for tomorrow’s super-middleweight title scrap.

Challenger Abraham weighed 12st 1lbs 15oz at 1.40pm at the initial weigh-in.

The scales were moved to a solid surface for a second unsuccessful reading. 

He was given two hours to make the 12 stone limit – and rushed off to a hotel sauna.

The Armenian made the limit exactly two hours later.

Brighton’s Eubank Jr weighed in 11st 13lbs 3oz at the first time of asking.

Had Abraham failed to make the weight in time, the fight would have gone ahead tomorrow night at Wembley Arena but without Eubank’s IBO strap on the line.

Ironically, Eubank Jr, 27, told The Argus this week his training camp had gone perfectly – and he was enjoying not worrying about making the weight.

Eubank said: “I’ve been on weight for the last three weeks and I’m feeling strong.

“It has been a difference experience not having to cut weight, especially getting close to a fight and being able to eat whatever you want, or as much as you want. It’s been really good.

“I stick to healthy foods and I am not eating junk but, good food, I can eat as much of it as I want.”
