LAS VEGAS — There were no weight hiccups in Vegas today as main eventers Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan both weighed at their agreed upon catchweight of 155 pounds. Both men looked solid at the weight.
Glen Tapia looked the part of a middleweight tipping the scales at ripped 159.5 pounds. David Lemieux, who previously failed to make weight in March against James De La Rosa, made it at 160.
Frankie Gomez’s past weigh-in demons didn’t surface as he came in at 146. Mauricio Herrera weighed in at 145.5. The contracted weight for this bout is 146.
A clearly cold Patrick Teixiera weighed 159, while veteran Curtis Stevens tipped the scales at 160.
The funniest weigh-in moment came courtesy of Shane Mosley protege Rocco Santomauro against Diego De La Hoya. Santomauro got on the scale eating Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, showing his confidence in making weight. He did so at a weight of 121. De La Hoya was 122.
Jason Quigley weighed 160 while James De La Rosa came in at 162.
The HBO card begins Saturday at 9 p.m. ET. Preliminary fights will be streamed live on BeatsBoxingMayhem starting at 7 p.m ET.
