Well, that’s one way to get people talking.

A little over 24 hours out from their Australian super welterweight title showdown, both Tim Tszyu and Joel Camilleri needed two chances at making weight.

Taking to the scales at Star Casino on Tuesday, Tszyu and Camilleri both came in 0.05kg over the 69.85kg limit.

The two faced off, before having to lose their underwear to make the bout official minutes later. The birthday suit did the trick, with Wednesday night’s showdown on Main Event set to go ahead.

Tszyu is 12-0-0 on his young career — with 10 knockouts — and most recently dealt with Denton Vassell in the second round of their February bout.

But Camilleri (17-5-1), 28, the vastly more experienced boxer, is no easy beat, and Tszyu understands the challenge that lays ahead.

“He’s the Australian champion for a reason,” Tszyu told foxsports.com.au last month.

“He’s a very good fighter. He’s got some good power, got some good movement.

“But then again, I focus on myself mainly, focus on my training, only on what I have to do, and I know the keys to victory, and I will capitalise on it.”
