Geale vs Barker: Fighters make weight for HBO main event

Elsa

Daniel Geale and Darren Barker made weight this afternoon for the HBO Boxing After Dark main event tomorrow night from Atlantic City.

Daniel Geale and Darren Barker are good to go for tomorrow night's HBO Boxing After Dark main event from Atlantic City, as both made weight this afternoon for the IBF middleweight title bout. It's the U.S. and HBO debut for Geale, who holds the belt currently, and is Barker's second appearance on HBO, after his 2011 loss to Sergio Martinez.

Both Geale (29-1, 15 KO) and Barker (25-1, 16 KO) weighed in at 159½ pounds for the 160-pound fight. The night's live co-feature will be another world title bout, as Jhonatan Romero (23-0, 12 KO) defends his IBF super bantamweight belt against Kiko Martinez (28-4, 20 KO). Both fighters weighed in at 121½ pounds for the 122-pound bout.

The HBO broadcast will kick off at 9:45 pm EDT tomorrow, with the tape delay airing of Nathan Cleverly vs Sergey Kovalev from Cardiff, Wales. BLH will have live coverage in the afternoon of the Cleverly-Kovalev card, starting at 2:00 pm EDT, so if you're hoping to avoid spoilers, well, good luck, I guess, because again, it's live sports, the world turns, and it's our job to cover a live sporting event when it's actually happening. Suck it, basically, is my point.
