It is a must on the eve of fights, the traditional weigh-in of athletes. Before their long-awaited clash this Thursday, March 7 at the Accor Arena in Bercy (around 11 p.m.), Cédric Doumbè and Baysangur “Baki” Chamsoudinov both saw their weight validated by the organizers.

The two headliners of PFL Europe do not exceed 78 kg, as required by their middleweight category. The fight will therefore take place. When Doumbè passed, the scale showed 77.2 kg against 77.1 kg for Chamsoudinov. A relief for “Baki”. Last November, the fighter of Chechen origin failed to drop below the 78 kg mark and his fight against the Englishman Felix Klinkhammer was canceled.

Doumbè and “Baki” have been raising the stakes and the pressure for several weeks on social networks. On Monday, the 31-year-old Franco-Cameroonian even filmed himself at the Pitié Salpêtrière hospital (Paris 13th) preparing a room for his opponent, while making the journey himself from the Accor Arena to on board an ambulance.

This Thursday, March 7, Le Figaro will provide live commentary on its website of the Doumbè-Baki fight. Start of hostilities around 11:00 p.m.
