Martinez (50-2-2, 28 KO) is definitely the favorite, and is fighting at home for the first time in 11 years, after an unexpected journey from Spain to the UK and finally to US shores, where he's become one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

But Murray (25-0-1, 11 KO) looks in fantastic shape, and had a small but vocal group of fans at the weigh-in today, who have made the trip from the UK.

In the televised co-feature from Argentina, Luis Carlos Abregu (34-1, 28 KO) and Antonin Decarie (27-1, 8 KO) both weighed in at the 147 pound limit for their 12-round welterweight bout.

We've got a bit more weigh-in coverage coming your way, as Danny Garcia and Zab Judah are up at 1 pm EDT in Brooklyn, and we'll have more on all the weekend's fights coming up, too. If you haven't checked out the weekend fight preview at SB Nation, go do that.
