The weigh-ins for Thursday’s Matchroom Boxing on DAZN card have wrapped up, and the most important thing to note is that the competitors in all three world title bouts made weight. None of Demetrius Andrade, Tevin Farmer, or Danny Roman (or their respective opponents) came in overweight, so their respective titles will be on the line tomorrow in Miami.

Now sadly, the fight that will get the most attention and web traffic is the next “Battle of the YouTubers” iteration in the form of Jake Paul and AnEsonGib. This is officially a cruiserweight bout for both men, and you’ll be thrilled to know that they were comfortable under the 200 lbs limit. There is BAD BLOOD between these two, which is why Jake felt the need to shove AnEsonGib during the weigh-in faceoffs, followed by channeling his inner Conor McGregor and primal screaming for no particularly good reason outside of intimidation. Fans of AnEsonGib were doing “Who are ya?” chants too.

The full weigh-in videos can be seen at the top of the page, whereas this cringefest reaches its peak right around three minutes in.

Here are the full weigh-in results.
