In front of 12,200 passionate boxing fans at the MGM Grand Garden Arena this afternoon, Floyd 'Money' Mayweather and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez would step on the scales to record the official weights for their Ring Magazine, WBC, and WBA junior middleweight title fight. In a spectacle of massive proportions, the weigh in for The One did not disappoint. Showtime and the MGM went all out in production, as the anticipation builds for the boxing event of 2013.
Canelo weighed in right at the catch weight limit of 152 pounds, looking ripped and perhaps slightly dehydrated. Floyd would step on the scale next, and came in at a career high 150.5. He looked in as spectacular condition as he always has.
In the main under card attraction, Lucas Matthysse weighed in right at 140, looking rather gaunt. His opponent Danny Garcia had to make 2 attempts but also settled in at 140 on the dot. At stake are the WBC, WBA, and Ring Magazine junior welterweight titles.
