Duke Micah, Yoann Boyeaux make weight for tonight’s fight

Ghana’s Duke Micah and France’s Yoann Boyeaux made their weight for Saturday’s battle at the Theatre in Brooklyn, USA.

The two boxers correctly tipped the scales on Friday.

Micah will be making his second defense of his WBC international bantamweight strap against the French man.

It will be Micah’s second fight in USA – his debut fight was in November 2017 when he defeated Mexico’s Jose Santos Gonzalez via majority decision to defend his WBC international bantamweight strap.

Micah first won the WBC belt in March 2017 when he stopped Mexico’s Jonathan Aguilar in round seven at the Bukom Boxing Arena.

Boyeaux’s last fight was a World title fight (WB0 World super flyweight) which he lost via TKO to Japanese’s Naoya Inoue.

The defeat was Boyeaux’s first loss after four years.
