Manny Pacquiao tipped the scales at 145 pounds, while opponent "Sugar" Shane Mosley met the welterweight limit of 147 on the nose today at a packed weigh-in at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Reports from the building were that somewhere between 6-8,000 fans were in attendance, along with a mass of media. The fire marshal eventually had to stop allowing fans into the building for the event.

Both Pacquiao and Mosley looked very fit, but that's nothing new for either of them. Even declining due to age, Mosley is a physical specimen to be reckoned with and consistently stays in excellent shape out of the ring. There should be no excuses about coming in out of shape for tomorrow's fight.

On the undercard, both Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. and Jorge Arce hit the 122-pound limit for their fight. Arce, who is fighting well over his best weights of 108 and 112 pounds, looked more hydrated, but that's to be expected given the circumstances for both fighters.

In a bout a bit north of the super middleweight division, former middleweight champ Kelly Pavlik weighed in at a lean 170 pounds with a bunch of new tattoos, while opponent Alfonso Lopez weighed 169 pounds. The limit for the fight was 171. And in junior welterweight action, Ray Narh weighed in at 140 pounds, and Mike Alvarado was at 139.

Bad Left Hook will continue our coverage of Pacquiao vs Mosley throughout the night and into tomorrow.
