Excitement is mounting at Fort Bragg, with the countdown almost over to tonight's boxing clash between 3 PARA and the American 82nd Airborne Division.
 
3,500 spectators will be in attendance for the series of bouts at the Ritz-Epps Sports Complex in North Carolina.
 
Forces TV has been following both teams every step of the way, and today reporter Laura Hawkins went to see traditionally one of the most important, and sometimes bad-tempered, parts of the build-up - the weigh-in.
 
You can catch all the action LIVE on Forces TV from midnight - on Sky Channel 264, Virgin 277, or Freesat 652.
