Floyd Mayweather, Jr. (41-0, 25 KO) takes his perfect record into the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night. Standing in the way of Floyd picking up his forty-second win is WBC world welterweight champion, Victor Ortiz. Both men appeared at the official weigh-ins attempting to hit the 147 pound mark. The two men meet in the main event on HBO pay-per-view.
Mayweather, the much more experienced man, hit the scales and weighed 146.5 pounds. Half a pound under the welterweight limit, Floyd looked solid and comfortable in the weight class he has fought in for several years.
While many are still clamoring for Floyd to face Manny Pacquiao, he needs to get by a stiff test in Ortiz first.
