INDIO, CA — HBO Boxing After Dark’s first card of 2017 is set for tomorrow night as all the fighters were on target for today’s weigh-in.

Former WBC super featherweight champion Takashi Miura tipped the scales at 129.8, his lowest since weighing 129.5 in a 2013 decision win over Sergio Thompson. His opponent, Miguel Roman, came in at 129.2. Tomorrow’s fight will be Miura’s first U.S. appearance since losing by ninth round knockout to Francisco Vargas in 2015’s Fight of the Year.

Vargas, who main events the card, weighed in at 129.6. The challenger for his WBC super featherweight crown, Miguel Berchelt, came in at 129.8

Saturday night’s card airs live on HBO at 10 p.m. ET.

We have a fight Saturday night. Light-heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev and challenger Andre Ward were on target and in phenomenal shape at today’s weigh-in. Each fighter tipped the scales exactly at the light-heavyweight limit of 175 pounds.

PREDICTION: Hyperbole aside, this is truly a fight that deserves the 50/50 moniker. It’s easy to envision scenarios where both men are victorious. Kovalev, the natural light-heavyweight, might prove to be too strong and wear Ward down in a grind-out fight. Or Ward’s technical skill might be too difficult a puzzle for Kovalev to solve, who falls behind hopelessly and loses much like Carl Froch did in 2011.

Since coming to 175, Ward has relied more on his timing and finesse to beat guys over the physical bullying he displayed at 168. I see that trend continuing tomorrow night as Kovalev stays competitive but struggles to land hard leather. However, Kovalev’s pressure begins to take its toll on an older Ward who isn’t as mobile as he was five years ago. Despite a strong finish where Kovalev looks to be the fresher fighter, I expect a bruised Ward to hang on for a split/majority decision win.
