Both Terence Crawford and Kell Brook made weight on Friday, a day ahead of their WBO welterweight title fight at the MGM Grand “Bubble” in Las Vegas.

Crawford (36-0, 27 knockouts) of Omaha, Nebraska weighed in at 146.4 pounds for his fourth title defense, while Brook (39-2, 27 KOs) of Sheffield, England weighed in at the 147-pound limit. Brook, who is a year older at 34, made welterweight for the first time since 2017, when he lost his IBF title to Errol Spence Jr.

The two exchanged heated words during their socially-distant staredown, with Crawford dropping F-bombs at Brook and his team, and Brook telling Crawford he would put on significant size overnight before stepping into the ring.

The fight card begins at 10 p.m. ET on Saturday, live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes.

The co-featured bout will feature Joshua Franco facing off with Andrew Moloney in a rematch of their entertaining bout in June, which Franco won by unanimous decision. Franco (17-1-2, 8 KOs) of San Antonio weighed 114.5 pounds while Moloney (21-1, 14 KOs) of Kingscliff, Australia weighed 114.7 pounds for their “regular” WBA junior bantamweight title fight.
