Bivol vs Broadhurst: Fighters make weight in Monte Carlo

By Scott Christ

Dmitry Bivol and Trent Broadhurst are set for tomorrow’s fight.

Dmitry Bivol and Trent Broadhurst have both made weight ahead of Saturday’s clash in Monte Carlo, where Bivol will defend the WBA “world” light heavyweight title.

Bivol weighed in at 174.4 pounds, with Broadhurst at 175.

HBO will air the fight live at 5:45 pm ET, with a replay at 9:45 pm ET.

Bivol (11-0, 9 KO) is a fast-rising star in the 175-pound division, and has won two fights this year. In April, he stopped Samuel Clarkson in the fourth round, followed by a June win over Cedric Agnew, another fourth round stoppage.

Broadhurst (20-1, 12 KO) is a fringe contender from Australia, who has never had a scheduled 12-round fight. His last fight came in February, a TKO-3 victory over veteran Nader Hamdan.

The card will also feature Jamie McDonnell rematching Liborio Solis in a WBA bantamweight title fight, Dereck Chisora challenging Agit Kabayel for the European heavyweight title, and Scott Quigg returning to action against Oleg Yefimovych.
