De la Hoya-Pacquiao weigh-in LIVE on ESPN at 6pm ET

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.


The weigh-in for tomorrow night's showdown between Oscar de la Hoya and Manny Pacquiao will be broadcast live on ESPNews and apparently on SportsCenter on ESPN at 6pm ET, so in about 40 minutes from now. We'll update this post with the weights if you're not near a TV at that time. It's the last bit of speculation left -- will Oscar make it in? (He will.) Where will Pacquiao weigh in? (I'm guessing 142, 143.)

Kieran Mulvaney weighed in -- if you will -- on rumors that Oscar is having trouble with weight:

De La Hoya looks pretty good to me. Some people have commented that they have heard he really isn't eating anything at this point, and that he's struggling to stay on 147. That wouldn't surprise me; it's normally the case with fighters and Oscar had a hard time making 150 for Forbes. I think he'll weigh in bang on 147 (I think the talk of him weighing 143 at times during camp is bogus) and he'll be somewhere around 155 or more on fight night.

As for the penalties: I asked Eric Gomez of Golden Boy Promotions if there is any truth to the oft-reported notion that De La Hoya will have to pay a certain amount per pound above 147 that he weighs. Eric insists there is absolutely nothing in the contract to that effect.


Manny Pacquiao: 142 pounds
Oscar de la Hoya: 145 pounds

Juan Manuel Lopez: 122 pounds
Sergio Medina: 122 pounds

Victor Ortiz: 140 pounds
Jeff Resto: 140 pounds

Daniel Jacobs: 162 pounds
Victor Lares: 165 pounds

Is Oscar coming in two pounds light a bad thing? I don't know. Pacquiao is about where I expected he would be.
