Chris Algieri missed weight by a small amount at tonight's weigh-in in Macau for tomorrow night's HBO pay-per-view main event against Manny Pacquiao, and will re-weigh within the next two hours. The fight is on, so no worries on that count, but it will take a bit more.

Algieri (20-0, 8 KO) weighed in at 144.4 pounds initially, then re-weighed nude at 144.2 pounds, or 0.2 pounds over the catchweight limit of 144. Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KO) weighed in at 143.8 pounds and is good to go.

Shedding the 0.2 pounds should be no trouble for Algieri, 30, who will -- not to be crude or anything -- go have a bowel movement or whatever and be fine.

Undercard weights

Jessie Vargas (25-0, 9 KO) will open the pay-per-view broadcast against Antonio DeMarco (31-3-1, 23 KO) in a junior welterweight fight, for Vargas' WBA paper title. Vargas weighed in at 140 pounds, with DeMarco at 139.3.

Vasyl Lomachenko (2-1, 1 KO) will defend the WBO featherweight title against Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (52-1, 33 KO). Both fighters made the limit of 126 pounds.

Zou Shiming (5-0, 1 KO) headlines the undercard in a 12-round flyweight bout with Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym (27-0-2, 12 KO). Both weighed in at the 112-pound limit.
