WEIGHTS FROM LAS VEGAS: CHAVEZ, MARTINEZ, CANELO AND LOPEZ ALL MAKE WEIGHT.


All fighters competing in a mammoth night of boxing in Las Vegas tomorrow night have successfully made weight.

A total of nive live fights will be shown on the night; 5 from the HBO PPV which has Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Sergio Martinez in the main event, and 4 from the Showtime card (not PPV) which features Saul Alvarez vs. Josesito Lopez at the top of the card.

Read on for a full list of all weights from both cards.

WEIGHTS FROM HBO PPV 

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. came in at the lowest he’s ever been since 2009, 158lbs, which, unlike previous fights, would suggest the WBC world middleweight champion hasn’t struggled to make weight. In his February clash with Marco Antonio Rubio he reportedly had to shed 13lbs only 24 hours before the fight took place.

His opponent, Sergio Martinez, made weight comfortably, coming in 1lb under the 160lb limit at 159lbs.

Both fighters faced off and that will have only increased everyone’s appetite for the showdown tomorrow night, which will take place in-front of a sell-out crowd at the Thomas & Mack Centre.

Each fighter spoke with Max Kellerman after the face-off.

Martinez: “Tomorrow’s going to be a war, because I want a war. … It feeds me knowing that I’m going to punish him.”
Chavez Jr.: “I just said I’m going to beat him tomorrow.”

WEIGHTS FROM SHOWTIME CARD

Defending WBC world light-middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez came in at 154lbs for his bout against Josesito Lopez. Lopez came in at a career high of 153lbs – his previous highest weight was his clash with Victor Ortiz, in which he came in at 144lbs.

Canelo looked solid on the scales,  and while Lopez looked fine, he did look a little soft around the stomach area which could be vulnerable to body shots in the fight.

In comparison to the HBO PPV between Chavez Jr. and Martinez, there was no drama or animosity displayed between each man as they faced off.
