LONDON — The weights are in for Saturday’s middleweight title match featuring WBC/IBF/WBA champion Gennady Golovkin taking on Kell Brook. Both men were below the 160 limit with Golovkin tipping the scales at 159, and Brook slightly higher at 159.4. Golovkin, who was around his usual weight, looked less defined than previous weigh-ins while Brook, who is coming up from welterweight, carried the extra weight well.

PREDICTION: Don’t let your mind start playing tricks on you. We have weight classes for a reason. Golovkin has fought the biggest punchers in his division and has never been seriously hurt. The smaller Brook will be slowly stalked and laid out in brutal fashion. GOLOVKIN TKO4
