Daws himself will be fighting at super featherweight and was on the money yesterday at weigh-in with his nutritionist John Clarke saying ahead of the fight “I had the responsibility of overseeing Brads nutrition for his big fight tomorrow and getting Brad weight ready.”
“Il be honest it doesn’t matter how many times you get someone weight ready there is always a pressure as their career is in your hands.”
“Everything went perfect no crazy stunts. We kept Brad on 4 meals per day right up until yesterday. We kept his water in and just deceased it slightly yesterday.”
“Brad just weighed in 128 on the button a few grams under the weight limit nice and strong. Now it’s feet up to drink and load him up.”
