The weights in Houston at yesterday's weigh-in for tonight's HBO Boxing After Dark:

Main Event - 138.5-pound Catchweight
Juan Diaz 137.33
Paulie Malignaggi 138.25

IBF Junior Lightweight (130) Title
Malcolm Klassen 129
Robert Guerrero 130

Middleweights (160)
Daniel Jacobs 159
Ishe Smith 159

I figured the Jacobs bout was going to be at super middle, but that is obviously not the case. This is the first time that Jacobs has actually come in at or under the middleweight limit as a pro, and he's fought as high as 169. It shouldn't be a problem for him. Smith is technically coming up from 154, but he's fought at middleweight before.

The main event catchweight still really bugs me. I get doing a catchweight for this fight, but the half pound? Malignaggi offered 139 and the Diaz camp acted like the half pound was the biggest issue possible. Let's just hope it's a good fight and worth all the nonsense.
