Sat., June 10, 1995

Donovan “Razor” Ruddock, 31, looking formidable despite fighting only once in two years, weighed in at 243 pounds as he prepared for the fight that likely will determine his boxing future.

Tommy Morrison, 26, who also is at the crossroads of an up-and-down career, came in at 227 pounds. Morrison will fight today in the IBC heavyweight title bout 2 inches shorter and with a reach 2 inches less than Ruddock who is 6-foot-3 with a 78-inch reach.

Ruddock is 28-4-1 with 20 knockouts; Morrison is 44-2-1 with 38 knockouts.
