Weigh-In Results: Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito Hit the Scales at 5:45

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

Today at 5:45pm EST, the fighters hit the scales in Texas for tomorrow night's big event at Cowboys Stadium. Main eventers Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito are fighting at a 150-pound catchweight, and it'll be interesting to find out if Pacquiao comes in any heavier than he ever has before. His highest weigh-in ever was for his last fight against Joshua Clottey, when he came in at 145¾ pounds in the 147-pound fight. As for Margarito, those around his camp have said he's looked ripped and as if he didn't have a pound to lose when he was around 154 during training, and there has been some talk that even 150 might be tough to hit for the former welterweight titlist.

The undercard, both on TV and off, features Brandon Rios, Guillermo Rigondeaux, Ricardo Cordoba, Omri Lowther, Mike Jones, Jesus Soto Karass, Mike Lee, Jose Benvadiez and many others.

Top Rank will have coverage with their Top Rank LiveStream at 5:45, while ESPN will also have coverage starting at 6. We'll have live updates of the weights here on Bad Left Hook, in the comments of this post, and a full round-up after.
