Guerrero vs Aydin Video: Fighters Make Weight, Pulled Apart After Shoving

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


Robert Guerrero and Selcuk Aydin made weight for tomorrow night's Showtime main event from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., and got into the fairly standard weigh-in shoving scuffle before being quickly separated by their teams.

"Robert! Robert!" someone screamed as the predictable and allegedly dramatic scene unfolded.

[ Fight Preview: Guerrero vs Aydin, Undercard ]

Guerrero, fighting as a welterweight for the first time, weighed in at 145¾, with Aydin at 146½. The two will be vying for the interim WBC welterweight title, with the full title currently held by Floyd Mayweather, who is scheduled to be released from jail on August 3.

The Showtime co-feature will pit Akron, Ohio, prospect Shawn Porter (19-0, 14 KO) against veteran Alfonso Gomez (23-5-2, 12 KO) in a junior middleweight bout. Porter weighed in at 152, with Gomez at 151½, according to Golden Boy, or Porter weighed 146¼ and Gomez weighed 146½, according to Showtime. One way or the other, these dudes made weight!

On the Showtime Extreme portion of the telecast, a pair of strong young fighters will be in action. George Groves (14-0, 11 KO) has been sent over by Frank Warren, and won't be defending his British and Commonwealth super middleweight titles, as he takes on Francisco Sierra (25-5-1, 22 KO) in a catchweight bout. Groves weighed in at 169½ and Sierra at 170.

Hugo Centeno (14-0, 8 KO) will face Ayi Bruce (22-7, 14 KO) on the SHO Extreme broadcast. Golden Boy says they weighed in at around the super bantamweight limit, but considering it's a junior middleweight fight and neither has ever fought under welterweight, I have my doubts.
