Andrew Moloney and Joshua Franco have weighed in ahead of their highly-anticipated trilogy fight on Sunday.
The pair will be fighting for the WBA super flyweight title that Franco controversially retained after a no-decision verdict in November last year.
Both 115-pound fighters made weight on Saturday morning, with Moloney weighing in at 114.8 pounds (52.1 kilograms) and later staring down Franco who was slightly less at 114.2 pounds (51.8 kilograms).

The Aussie has had to wait nine months for a shot at vengeance and is keen to settle the score.
“There is no doubt that result from the second fight and also the first fight have been in the back of my mind everyday for the last nine months,” Moloney told foxsports.com.au ahead of Sunday morning’s bout.
“I think the whole world knows that belt deserves to be around my waist at the moment. It was a no contest but he walked away with the belt. He knows he didn’t deserve it and I think he is going to be very determined this weekend but as am I.
“For the last nine months I’ve had to watch him basically claim he is the champion and walk around with that belt that I know should be mine.”

Twin brother Jason is also fighting on Sunday and weighed in at 117.6 pounds (53.3 kilogram) – the same as his opponent Joshua Greer Jr.
“All round I think I am a better fighter than he is, I have faced better opposition, I think I’ve beaten opposition and am a better fighter all-round,” Jason told foxsports.com.au ahead of the fight.
“There is a lot on the line here but I don’t think he is on the level I am.”
Sunday will also see the grandson of Muhammad Ali – Nico Ali – make his professional debut.
He weighed in at 162.4 pounds (73.6 kilograms) and will fight Jordan Weeks who weighed slightly less at 161 pounds (73.0 kilograms).
