Wladimir Klitschko and Kubrat Pulev hit the scales today in Hamburg, Germany, setting up tomorrow's world heavyweight championship fight at the O2 World Arena. Klitschko, 38, weighed in at 245.82 pounds, with the 33-year-old Pulev coming in at 246.92.

For Klitschko (62-3, 52 KO), it's right about as usual. In his five most recent fights, he came in at 249, 247, 249, 241¾, and 247¼. Pulev (20-0, 11 KO) is a little lighter than his most recent fights. In his last five, he's come in at 245½, 249¼, 252¾, 253¾, and 251.

Odds currently have Klitschko at -600, with Pulev a +400 underdog.

The fight will air tomorrow in the United States on HBO at 4:45 pm EST. Coverage in Germany will be carried by RTL as always, and Eurosport will have the fight in the United Kingdom. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage for the fight tomorrow afternoon, with immediate post-fight analysis following.
