Pacquiao-Margarito Weigh-In Results: Pac Comes in Light, Margarito Makes Limit

On fight night (November 13), Pacquiao is expected to weigh between 148-150 pounds. Margarito could possibly gain as much as 15 pounds by tomorrow, and come in close to the super-middleweight limit at 165 pounds.

While Antonio Margarito came in right at the 150 pound catchweight, Manny Pacquiao tipped the scales at a startling 144.6 pounds.

Margarito stripped down to his briefs, and was in tremendous shape despite being a little drawn and pale. During the weighing, some fans could be heard chanting “cheater! cheater!” at the Tijuana Tornado. Pacquiao’s frame was solid, although not the normally ripped physique he’s become notable for flexing during his weigh-ins.
