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

Tonight at 9 p.m. EDT on Showtime, Lucas Matthysse (31-2, 29 KO) and Olusegun Ajose (30-0, 14 KO) square off in what might be the fight of the weekend when all is said and done, live on Showtime from the Hard Rock in Las Vegas.

In the main co-feature bout, J'Leon Love (12-0, 7 KO) faces Ramon Valenzuela (7-1, 1 KO) in a fight that was pushed up the card when the original main event between Randall Bailey and Devon Alexander was canceled.

Everyone made weight on Friday afternoon, with Matthysse and Ajose coming in at 139 pounds for their junior welterweight fight, which will decide the new WBC interim titleholder at the weight, despite the fact that the full titleholder (Danny Garcia) is anything but inactive and will be fighting in, like, a month, after fighting in July.

The boxing will kick off at 7 p.m. EDT on Showtime Extreme however, with Ishe Smith vs Irving Garcia and Daquan Arnett vs Jesus Tavera in preliminary bouts. We'll have live coverage all the way, which will lead into live coverage of the Ward vs Dawson card on HBO. It's going to be a big, full night of boxing.

More weigh-in photos are after the jump.
