Luevano, Lopez, Gamboa and Mtagwa all make weight

The weights are in from New York City, and everything is good to go for tomorrow night's HBO Boxing After Dark double-header.

WBO featherweight titlist Steven Luevano came in right on the 126-pound limit, with challenger Juan Manuel Lopez at 125 1/2. In the other featherweight title fight of the evening, titlist Yuriorkis Gamboa was at 126, with challenger Rogers Mtagwa down at 122 1/2. We'll see if that makes any difference tomorrow. Did Mtagwa overtrain?

In an off-TV middleweight clash, John Duddy (160 1/2) meets Juan Astorga (155 1/2). You might assume that since Astorga is a professional opponent, Duddy will get a W, but remember that it's John Duddy, who has deserved some Ls against guys no better than Astorga, and took an L against Billy Lyell last year. I mean Duddy should win, but you never know with him.

Tomorrow night's show starts at 9:45 ET on HBO, and we'll be here with live, round-by-round coverage, scoring and analysis, as always.
