Erislandy Lara and Ishe Smith are good to go for tomorrow night's Showtime boxing main event, which will be for Lara's WBA "regular/world" junior middleweight title. Both fighters made weight today in Texas.
Lara (19-2-2, 12 KO) weighed in at 154 pounds, right at the division limit, with former IBF titleholder Smith (26-6, 12 KO) weighing in just under that, at 153½ pounds.
There will be two other televised fights from Mayweather Promotions, as well. In a 10-round super middleweight (catchweight) fight, Badou Jack (17-1-1, 11 KO) will face Francisco Sierra (26-7-1, 23 KO). Jack weighed in at 169½ pounds, with Sierra at 172½.
In a 10-round junior middleweight fight, also with a catchweight limit, Chris Pearson (13-0, 10 KO) will face Steve Martinez (15-1, 12 KO), in what should be a legitimate test for Pearson. Pearson weighed in at 155.3 pounds, with Martinez at 154½.
BLH will have live coverage of the show tomorrow night, and if you missed Samuel Chen's breakdown of Lara-Smith, prepare yourself with his in-depth look at the fight.
