BUNN AND KÖLLING MAKE WEIGHT AHEAD OF IBF INTERNATIONAL LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHT

Leon Bunn (14-0, 8 KOs) and Enrico Kölling (26-3, 8 KOs) both made weight ahead of Saturday’s IBF International Light Heavyweight domestic dust-up at the CGM Arena in Koblenz, Germany.

Bunn won the title with a ninth round stoppage in his last bout against Leon Harth in May 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany and hopes to improve his World ranking with a victory against World title challenger Enrico Kölling.

Kölling made weight at the second attempt, having been 100 grams over the limit the first time he stepped on the scales and also didn’t report to the press conference that took place before the weigh-in.

Undefeated 27-year-old Bunn says he is ignoring Kölling’s mind games and is confident his first-class camp will see him be rewarded with a victory on Saturday night.
