Lytham boxer Scott Cardle looked in good shape at the weigh-in ahead of his latest fight at the Braehead Centre in Glasgow on Friday night.

He bids to extend his unbeaten record as a professional when taking on Frenchman Sylvain Chapelle in a lightweight contest over eight three minute rounds.

Cardle is due in the ring for his contest at 6pm.

Top of the bill is Ricky Burns, who says he is under no illusions that he must beat Dejan Zlaticanin in style in order to get back to a world lightweight title.

Burns faces Zlaticanin for the vacant WBC International title and the first step on a path to WBC king Omar Figueroa, but despite the scale of the fight and his first bout under new trainer Tony Sims.

Willie Limond defends his Commonwealth title against Curtis Woodhouse who puts his British crown on the line in the process.

Cruiserweight rivals Stephen Simmons and Wadi Camacho are set for their grudge match with the Edinburgh man’s WBC International Silver belt on the line,
