OAKLAND — Andre Ward and Sullivan Barrera are in great shape ahead of their light-heavyweight showdown taking place Saturday night at the Oracle Arena. Ward tipped the scales at 174.8 and Barrera at 174.4 pounds. This fight will be Ward’s first in nine months and since recovery from knee surgery in August. Complications forced Ward to withdraw a November fight on the Canelo vs. Cotto undercard.
On this undercard, Jojo Diaz and Jayson Velez face off for the NABF featherweight title. Diaz weighed in at 125.75, and Velez at 125.5.
The card airs live on HBO March 26 at 10 p.m ET.
