Peres and Hafner weigh in ahead of world title fight


WBO light heavyweight champion Geovana Peres will carry a 600 gram weight advantage into her first title defence against Canadian Claire Hafner after tipping the scales at 78.7 kilograms at Thursday's weigh-in at SKY CITY in Auckland.

Hafner, the world's No. 2 ranked heavyweight, had little trouble making the lighter weight, weighing in at 78.1 kilograms.

The Pair square off at SKY CITY on Friday night, with the bout likely to start around 10.00pm.
