Video: Alvarez vs Rhodes Weigh-In

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

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Ryan Rhodes weighed in yesterday in Mexico, and here's some video from Canelo Promotions:

Alvarez weighed in at 153.2 pounds for the 154-pound contest, with Rhodes checking in at 152.6. Some feel Rhodes looked a bit too thin and may have trouble with Alvarez's power, including fighter Ishe Smith, who is concerned about Rhodes' thin neck:

In the 130-pound co-feature, Adrien Broner weighed 128.3, with Jason Litzau at 129.6.

"Canelo," as we mentioned earlier, has huge odds in his favor on the books, and even those of us on staff who still feel that Rhodes makes for a very good, very tough test tonight are picking Alvarez.
