Kovalev-Pascal make weight

The Russian champion puts his WBA, IBF and WBO belts on the line against Pascal in Montreal, live on Sky Sports, and he tipped the scales at 174lbs.

Pascal was bang on the 175lb limit and there was no pre-fight face-off following the angry scenes at the press conference earlier in the week.

While posing for pictures on Wednesday, the pair had to be separated after Kovalev shoved his opponent across the stage.

But on this occasion both fighters were kept at arm???s length ahead of this weekend???s clash at the Bell Centre.

Kovalev has racked up 26 wins, with 23 coming inside the distance, ahead of his meeting with the Canada-based Haitian.
