Weights In: Miguel Cotto at 145, Manny Pacquiao at 144

The 145-pound weight limit doesn't seem to have affected either Miguel Cotto or Manny Pacquiao for tomorrow night's mega fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Cotto came in at 145 on the nose, and Pacquiao weighed in one pound under the limit at 144. It's interesting from one angle, which is that Manny Pacquiao came in at 142 when he fought Oscar de la Hoya at a full welterweight limit last December. So this is the heaviest Manny has ever been on the scales.

We'll have more tonight and tomorrow, before we go live at 9pm ET on Saturday night for live coverage, scoring and analysis of the entire HBO PPV card.

The atmosphere for the weigh-in was incredible on the webcast, and every boxing writer that is there live in Vegas said the same, whether on Twitter or whatever. The crowd tomorrow is going to be totally mad.

Jesus Soto Karass came in at 148 pounds initially, then stripped down and weighed in at 147.5 for his welterweight undercard bout with Alfonso Gomez. JSK has to lose a half-pound, which shouldn't be any major issue. Gomez came in at 145 1/2.

Daniel Santos and Yuri Foreman both weighed in at 154 pounds for their WBA junior middleweight title fight, and Troy Rowland and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. are fighting at middleweight. Rowland weighed 159, Chavez 160. Hat tip to Ramon Aranda of 411mania.com for the weights on the Chavez-Rowland fight, as ESPN cut their webcast just before those two hit the scales.
