Nelson College for Girls boxer Lily-Belle Gifkins, 13, hits a hand pad at Victory Boxing.

Boxers weigh in on eve of Fight 4 Victory


There was a notable lift in intensity as fighters weighed-in ahead of Fight 4 Victory 3 tomorrow night at the Trafalgar Centre.

A majority of the hugs, smiles and laughter that accompanied the bout announcements in July were replaced with a steely look and deliberate walk to the scales at McCashins Brewery tonight.

The match makers also got it right with no major weight differences between opponents.

Nathan Sharp admitted he lost five kilos in the first two weeks of the 14-week training.

It was a different story for Amber Rowland-Connor who had to put on 14kg to get to a healthy fight weight.

Fights start at 6.30pm tomorrow night.
