Weights: Shawn Porter 146¾, Kell Brook 146½

Shawn Porter will defend his IBF welterweight title tomorrow night against Kell Brook, with the fight official after both made weight.

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

Shawn Porter and Kell Brook both made weight today for tomorrow night's Showtime Championship Boxing main event, with both coming in just under the 147-pound division limit for their IBF title fight.

Porter (24-0-1, 15 KO) weighed in at 146¾, with Brook (32-0, 22 KO) just under that at 146½.

In a super middleweight title rematch, Sakio Bika (32-5-3, 21 KO) and Anthony Dirrell (26-0-1, 22 KO) will meet for a second time, once again for Bika's WBC belt. The two fought to a draw last December in Brooklyn. Bika weighed in at 167¾, with Dirrell at the division limit of 168.

Omar Figueroa (23-0-1, 17 KO) will defend his WBC lightweight title against Daniel Estrada (32-2-1, 24 KO) in the opener of the Showtime triple-header. Figueroa met the 135-pound limit, with Estrada at 134½.

"Let's hope not. I've prepared very differently for this fight, and I think I'm in way better shape. I hope my body responds Saturday, and we'll prove that. I can't tell right now (about the hand). It's not until I start hitting him that I'll see how my hands fare. But so far, it's good. I'm definitely moving up to 140. Expect an even better Omar at 140."
