Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. and Marvin Sonsona make weight

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

Doubleassaultppv_medium Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. and Marvin Sonsona meet tomorrow in Bayamon to decide the vacant WBO junior featherweight title, and today both made weight.

Sonsona (14-0-1, 12 KO) has already won a title at 115 pounds, but vacated it on the scale before his last fight when he couldn't make the limit. Though he totally skipped bantamweight, there was concern this week that Sonsona was again struggling with weight. He's had some issues making it to camps on time and such recently, too.

Vazquez (17-0-1, 14 KO) will have home turf advantage, but Sonsona had a notable amateur career, and Vazquez did not. Though their pro records are somewhat similar and Vazquez is older, it's Sonsona who really has more experience.

Sonsona came in at 121.4 pounds, and Vazquez at 122.

Integrated Sports is showing this fight along with the Rodel Mayol-Omar Nino junior flyweight title fight from Guadalajara tomorrow night at 9pm ET on PPV for a pricetag of $34.95. Mayol came in at 107.8, with Nino at 108.

The show will also feature the pro debuts of Puerto Rican brothers McWilliams and McJoe Arroyo, and 6'6" Puerto Rican cruiserweight Carlos Negron. In Mexico, lightweight Daniel Estrada faces Angel Alirio Rivero.

I still haven't decided if I'll order this show. We've got a big stretch of PPV coming up with Pacquiao-Clottey (3/13), Hopkins-Jones II (4/3) and Mosley-Mayweather (5/1), so I'm considering being fiscally responsible to some degree. I already forced myself to not order that Latin Fury/Pinoy Power show a couple weeks ago. I rewarded myself for that with a giant jug of Maker's Mark, then realized I spent more money on that booze than I would have on the Top Rank show.
