Senchenko vs Malignaggi Weigh-In: Photos and Weights From Ukraine

Vyacheslav Senchenko defends his WBA welterweight title against Paulie Malignaggi on Sunday.

Tomorrow afternoon on American time, New York's Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi looks to win a world title in a second weight class as he'll face WBA welterweight titlist Vyacheslav Senchenko in Donetsk, Ukraine. Today, the fighters weighed in for the bout.

Senchenko (32-0, 20 KO) came in at 146.6 pounds on the scales, with Malignaggi (30-4, 6 KO) at 145.8. Malignaggi is a small welterweight, so seeing him over a pound light is no surprise, and shouldn't lead anyone to suspect that he overtrained or the like. I mean, maybe he did, but we won't know that until tomorrow.

This morning we previewed the Senchenko vs Malignaggi fight, and I found it hard to find a realistic, logical way to pick Malignaggi to win, but he's come back from tough stretches and bad losses before. We'll have live round-by-round coverage of the full card tomorrow afternoon, so make sure you're here with us. After the jump, more photos, plus weights from the undercard.

Also in attendance was Evander Holyfield, since Holyfield routinely shows up at these type of events to ... I'm not sure, really. He's just there because I guess he adds ... again, I'm not really sure. "Star power"?
