British rivals Joshua Buatsi and Craig Richards made weight ahead of their much-anticipated fight at the O2 Arena on Saturday night. 

Buatsi, who is being billed as the favourite, came in 174.12lbs, while Richards registered a weight of 174.4lbs. 

The two then engaged in a tense and long face-off in front of the fans at Spitalfields Market in London. 

However, that wasn't the end of the pre-fight night routine, there was still a matter to be decided, that being who will walk to the ring last. 

Promoter Eddie Hearn conducted the coin toss on stage and it was Richards who won, therefore he will get the home corner on fight night and walk to the ring last.
