Weights: Danny Garcia 139, Zab Judah 140, Quillin and Guerrero both overweight

Today's weigh-in in Brooklyn was anything but smooth, as Peter Quillin and Fernando Guerrero were both overweight, Zab Judah took two tries, and the main event fighters had to weigh in separately.

Danny Garcia and Zab Judah made weight for tomorrow night's Showtime main event from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, though Judah took two tries and had to strip nude to hit the 140 pound limit. Garcia came in at 139.8 pounds.

Any drama between the two camps will wait for tomorrow and the ring, which is good in one way, but made for a pretty dull weigh-in, not that many of them could be called, like, exciting. Garcia and Judah weighed in separately, and did not share the stage at all -- no faceoff photo ops, nothing. After yesterday's press conference fiasco, it's understandable, but it's like on a rasslin show, where everyone wants to see a confrontation, then they're like, "Yo, the heel totally isn't even here tonight," and everyone's like, "aw, boo, you so-and-sos."

The co-feature weigh-ins were a mess, as both WBO middleweight titlist Peter Quillin and Fernando Guerrero were overweight. They have about another half hour to weigh in again. Quillin came in at 161.5 pounds, with Guerrero barely over at 160.4.

Update: Both Quillin and Guerrero made the 160 pound limit when they returned to the scales.
