Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito meet Saturday night in the main event of an HBO pay-per-view card loaded with great fights. The two men have no shortage of bad blood following a 2008 meeting which Margarito won by TKO, only to be caught with loaded wraps in his next fight. Cotto now feels that Margarito cheated against him and put his life in danger. It has made for some great pre-fight trash talk and this evening the men took to the scales to make it official.
Despite a few rumblings on Twitter that the bout between Brandon Rios and John Murray was getting scrapped at the last minute, both men showed up for the weigh-ins, Rios was over at 135.6 and looked terrible but has an hour to lose the .6 pound. His opponent, John Murray was solid at 134.75.
Here's the official weights:
Delvin Rodriguez 153 vs. Pawel Wolak 153.5
Mike Jones 146 vs. Sebastian Lujan 146
