Weights for Saturday: Sergio Martinez 157.5, Paul Williams 156

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

Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez and challenger Paul Williams both met the 158-pound catchweight limit for tomorrow's rematch in Atlantic City, with Martinez coming in at 157.5 pounds and Williams at 156. There has been some chatter that Martinez looked drained, which may well have been the goal of the Williams camp getting him down a couple of extra pounds.

Martinez (45-2-2, 24 KO) and Williams (39-1, 27 KO) will have the rematch of their 2009 Fight of the Year candidate televised tomorrow on HBO, along with a replay of Manny Pacquiao's destructive victory over Antonio Margarito last weekend. Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round coverage of Martinez-Williams II, and immediate post-fight analysis.
