Wladimir Klitschko and Bryant Jennings won't be accused of slacking off in training camp any time soon, as both heavyweights looked to be in immaculate condition today in New York, as they weighed in for tomorrow night's world championship fight on HBO.

Klitschko came in at 241.6, a little bit lighter than he's been for most of his recent fights, weighing closer to what he did for wins over Alexander Povetkin and David Haye. Jennings was at 226.8, just a bit heavier than he was against Mike Perez last July, and closer to where he'd been for his four fights prior to that victory.

Klitschko (63-3, 53 KO) seemed to have the advantage with the crowd gathered for the weigh-in, or at least those who were vocal. There was a small "USA" chant for Jennings (19-0, 10 KO), the sizable underdog. In attendance for the weigh-in were Bernard Hopkins, Lennox Lewis, Iran Barkley, Evander Holyfield, and Cecilia Braekhus.

The co-feature is also set, with welterweights Sadam Ali (21-0, 13 KO) and Francisco Santana (22-3-1, 11 KO) making weight. Ali weighed in at 146.8, with Santana at 146.4.
