James Tennyson has found himself burdened by weight matters all too often but now, as he embarks on a bid for more title success, the Belfast man is adamant the scales are no longer a factor in his career.

Tennyson entered Matchroom Boxing's Fight Camp bubble earlier this week and after weighing in yesterday in Eddie Hearn's back garden he is ready to shoot for the vacant British lightweight title at the expense of Welshman Gavin Gwynne.

Entering the ring behind closed doors, the former European super-featherweight champion is confident that he will deliver an eye-catching performance and most importantly one that suggests he is much more comfortable at 9st 9lb.
