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.

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.
