549_medium

The weights are in for tomorrow night's edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights from Minneapolis, featuring a super featherweight title eliminator in the main event, and local attraction Caleb Truax facing Chicago's Don George in the co-feature.

The main event, an IBF eliminator, will be between Cuba's Rances Barthelemy (18-0, 11 KO) and Thailand's Fahsai Sakkreerin (39-3-1, 21 KO), who has been elevated to this fight mostly due to wins over opponents with incoming records of 14-9-2, 23-27-5, and most recently, 7-20-2. His most notable fight was probably a 2011 loss to Martin Honorio in the Philippines, which as also an IBF eliminator.

Barthelemy weighed in at 128½, with Sakkreerin at 129.

The co-feature bout between Truax (21-1-1, 12 KO) and George (24-3-2, 21 KO) is well-matched and will be the real draw for those attending in person. Truax, from Osseo, Minnesota, is a veteran of the local circuit, and has won three straight since a near-miss against Jermain Taylor in April 2012, where he was mostly outboxed but did floor Taylor in round nine.

Truax weighed in at 162 pounds, with George just under that at 161.8.
