Bernard Hopkins, Tavoris Cloud, Keith Thurman, and Jan Zaveck all made weight for tomorrow night's HBO World Championship Boxing event from Brooklyn.
Bernard Hopkins and Tavoris Cloud both looked fit and ready for tomorrow night's HBO main event, as did co-feature fighters Keith Thurman and Jan Zaveck, at today's weigh-in event in Brooklyn.
Hopkins, 48, came in at 174.4 pounds, just a bit higher than Cloud, 31, who tipped the scales at 173.8. Hopkins (52-6-2, 32 KO) is looking to break his own record as the oldest man in boxing history to win a world title, with Cloud (24-0, 19 KO) making his fifth defense of the IBF light heavyweight belt, which he won in 2009.
Thurman, 24, came in at 145.8, his lowest weight since 2009, a stretch spanning eight fights. Zaveck, 36, weighed in at 146.6. The two are meeting in a WBO eliminator, with Thurman hoping to land his first crack at a world title next, while Zaveck, a former IBF titleholder, is trying to get back to that level.
BLH will have more on the fights later today, including the staff picks this evening, and then full live coverage tomorrow night starting at 9:30 pm EST.
