Tyrone Nurse weighed in a couple of ounces light for his big British title defence but trainer Chris Aston declared: “Bring it on!”
Both Nurse and challenger Tommy Coyle tipped the scales at 9st 13.2oz for their light-welterweight Lonsdale Belt clash at the Leeds Arena.
Huddersfield fighter Nurse is fresh from his best-ever training camp under dad and trainer Chris Aston and ready to sparkle in front of the Sky TV cameras (Saturday, 8.30pm).
“They were both a bit light – we prefer to be spot on the 10st – but we are ready to go and can’t wait,” said Aston.
“Tyrone is determined to put on a real show for the fans at the venue and those watching on Sky Sports 1 and he’s prepared superbly.
“We are very happy with where we are and everything is set up for a proper performance.”
By the time he gets in the ring, Nurse will be at his prime 11st 3lb.
“That’s the ideal mark we are looking for,” explained Aston.
“We don’t want to get over that because it’s easy to get a bit sluggish, while under it and you can be not quite as sharp.
“Tyrone is absolutely spot on in this build-up, to be fair, and whichever way the fight is boxed, he’s going to win.”
