Here are the weights from Copenhagen, Denmark.
WBC Light Heavyweight World Championship (Silver):
Mikkel Kessler: 169 lbs (76,7 kg)
Allan Green: 171.75 lbs (77,9 kg)
It's interesting that even in Kessler's debut at light heavyweight, he's coming in just a pound heavier than the super middleweight limit. Of course, Green is a fighter who has been campaigning at super middleweight as well, so he won't be at a big size disadvantage either.
Patrick Nielsen: 163 lbs (74 kg)
Gaetano Nespro: 163 lbs (74 kg)
