British Luke Campbell made weight this Friday in London, England, by hitting the scales at 134.7 pounds, and met the qualifying requirement for his World Boxing Association Lightweight elimination fight on Saturday April 29th. However, the Colombian Darleys Perez weighed 136.3 pounds and will not have the right to own the 135 title in case of winning the bout.

Campbell currently occupies the seventh place in the WBA ranking in the Lightweight division, and comes to this battle with 4 straight wins. The British, who won a gold medal at 56 kilograms at the London 2012 Olympic Games, has a good record in boxing, with 16 wins, one defeat and 13 knockouts.

For his part, Perez, who already reigned in the division in 2015, had two fights in 2016, winning one and tying the other. In this way, he has a record of 33 wins, 2 defeats and 2 draws.

Both hope to demonstrate on the ring the experience they have, after so many battles, and will have the possibility of doing so prior to a great battle, the Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua fight for the WBA Heavyweight Super Championship, to which 90 thousand people will attend this Saturday at Wembley.
