Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora were involved in an angry confrontation after their weigh-in on Friday.
The heavyweight rivals and their entourages had to be separated backstage after displaying muscled physiques on the scales, a day before their Sky Sports Box Office rematch.
Chisora, after a training camp overseen by new manager David Haye, was chiselled into impressive shape and Whyte matched him - both men weighed 17st 8lbs.
There was an intense face-to-face, with Chisora masked by a Union Jack, before tensions rose.
Security were needed to intervene after the feuding heavyweights had left the stage.
The weights represented proof that Whyte, who won the first fight, and Chisora, who seeks revenge, are in tip-top condition.
Whyte has shed 12lbs from his frame since beating Joseph Parker in his previous outing, and hit his self-imposed target of approximately "17-and-a-half stone" that he revealed to Sky Sports earlier this month.
