DeGale weighed in at 167.2 while Dirrell came in at 167.8 to ensure that the IBF super-middleweight title will be on the line when the pair take each other on.
Both fighters looked in great condition as they took to the scales, and it was expected that they wouldn’t have any issues with the weight ahead of what is the biggest fight of their respective careers.
Dirrell will be hoping to end his long wait to own a world title, while his British opponent has built momentum over the last 12 months to put himself in a position to make history.
Should DeGale win, he will become the first British Olympic gold medallist to win a world title as a professional and he has made no secret of his desire to write his name into the history books.
The Londoner has looked calm and focused all week as he has spent the last seven days acclimatising in the USA, and he is adamant that it is his destiny to win the world title this weekend.
