Chavez vs Vera II live stream of weigh-in event

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Bryan Vera hit the scales for tomorrow night's HBO main event, as well as Orlando Salido and phenom prospect Vasyl Lomachenko.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Today at 2:00 pm EST, BLH will have live streaming video of the Chavez-Vera II weigh-in event from San Antonio as the two prepare for their HBO main event rematch tomorrow night at the Alamodome.

Chavez (47-1-1, 32 KO) and Vera (23-7, 14 KO) are fighting with a standard, 168-pound super middleweight limit this time. Last year, they met at a 173-pound catchweight after Chavez had to renegotiate the fight's maximum weight more than once. On September 28, Chavez won a highly controversial decision in California, controversial enough that he had little choice but to face Vera in a rematch.

Tomorrow night's co-feature is arguably even more interesting, as WBO featherweight titleholder Orlando Salido (40-12-2, 28 KO) will defend his title against super prospect Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1 KO), a two-time Olympic gold medalist who has had just one pro fight, making his debut in Las Vegas on October 12, 2013, part of the Bradley-Marquez pay-per-view. The 26-year-old Ukrainian has skill for days, but there's always been an adjustment period for guys turning pro, no matter their pedigree. Lomachenko is bypassing that.
