All fighters were on weight for tomorrow night's HBO broadcast from Carson, California.
Timothy Bradley and Ruslan Provdonikov made weight for tomorrow night's HBO World Championship Boxing broadcast, where Bradley will defend his WBO welterweight title for the first time since winning it last June against Manny Pacquiao, in the biggest boxing controversy in years.
Bradley (29-0, 12 KO) and Provodnikov (22-1, 15 KO) both came in at 146.6 pounds, and looked fit and ready to go. The fight may be debated by many in terms of how competitive it will be, but it should be at least a decent action fight.
In the co-feature, also a welterweight bout, Jessie Vargas will face Wale Omotoso in a matchup of unbeaten Top Rank prospects. Vargas (21-0, 9 KO) also came in at 146.6, a popular weight for the day, and Omotoso (23-0, 19 KO) came in at 146.8.
Also on the off-TV undercard, prospects Jesse Magdaleno, Oscar Valdez, and Andy Ruiz Jr, among others, will be in action. BLH will have live coverage tomorrow night.
