IBF world super-featherweight champion Gervonta Davis needed three attempts to make the weight on Friday ahead of a first title defence against Briton Liam Walsh at the Copper Box Arena in east London on Saturday. The American looked surprised to tip the scales two ounces over the limit. He then weighed in on the limit of 130 pounds on the third attempt after being given two hours to shed the overdue weight.
