Today at 5:30 p.m. EDT/2:30 p.m. PDT, Bad Left Hook will have live coverage of the Mayweather vs Ortiz weigh-in from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for tomorrow's big pay-per-view event. Thanks to Yahoo!, we'll also be able to give you the stream directly here, in the player below.
Mayweather (41-0, 25 KO) and Ortiz (29-2-2, 22 KO) will be fighting for Ortiz's WBC welterweight title tomorrow night on HBO pay-per-view. Also on the card, Erik Morales faces Pablo Cesar Cano for the vacant WBC junior welterweight title; Josesito Lopez and Jessie Vargas meet in a 140-pound, 10-round bout; and from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez defends his WBC junior middleweight belt against Alfonso Gomez.
We'll see what kind of turnout there is for the weigh-in today. Some fights can pack the place for the weigh-in, but there's a lot of talk that this fight hasn't captured the local audience much at all, with expensive ticket prices that have led to the MGM trying to comp tickets to people by calling them and attempting to convince them to attend the fight for free. This isn't the most unusual practice or anything, but for a fight like this it shouldn't be happening at that level.
But either way, we're here for the weigh-in at 5:30, and we can gauge the atmosphere then and see how everyone looks a day out from the fights.
