Mack strips naked to make weight

Boxing

NOTTINGHAM, England – Yusaf Mack stripped naked to make weight for his super-middleweight title fight against Carl Froch. Now, the heavy American underdog is planning to strip the champion of his belt.

After coming in just over the limit, Mack removed his underpants to make the 168-pound mark with only a towel held by his trainer shielding the challenger at Friday's weigh-in.

Mack moved down from light-heavyweight to fight Froch, who is a big favorite after beating previously undefeated Lucian Bute in five rounds to become world champion for the third time.

However, Mack says “I am ready to rumble. I've been the underdog all my life ... He says he is fit, but I am fitter and stronger.” – Sapa-AP
