[Video] & [Photos] Scuffle at Stevenson/Bellew Weigh-In
MONTREAL, QUEBEC –
The competitors in this weekend’s dual light heavyweight battle are weighed in and ready to go. In the midst of what should have been a run of the mill meeting at the scales, emotions ran high culminating with the Stevenson Camp and Bellew Camps engaging in a shoving match. According to TheWhig.com, the scuffled ensued when Stevenson pressed his forehead against Bellew’s and pretended to head butt him. The unamused Bellew responded by throwing a punch. Camps got involved, trash talk ensued with mention of Stevenson’s criminal past with Stevenson getting upset.
No drama for Kovalev and Sillakh, they were all smiles.
