Weights: Erislandy Lara 154, Ishe Smith 153½

The weights are in, and the show is set.

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.
