Gennady Golovkin and Willie Monroe looked in great shape at today's weigh-in, with Edgar Sosa slightly over for his fight with Roman Gonzalez.

The fighters are set for tomorrow night's HBO World Championship Boxing doubleheader from The Forum in Inglewood, California, tomorrow night, with one minor slip at today's weigh-in that should not actually mean much to the card.

Edgar Sosa (51-8, 30 KO) weighed in at 112.4 pounds initially for his challenge to WBC flyweight champ Roman Gonzalez (42-0, 36 KO), and then came in at 112.2 fully nude. He has two hours to lose the 0.2 pounds, which should not be a problem. Gonzalez weighed in at 111 pounds.

For the main event, WBA middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin (32-0, 29 KO) weighed in at 159 pounds, just below challenger Willie Monroe Jr (19-1, 6 KO), who came in at the divisional limit of 160. Golovkin-Monroe is good to go, and Gonzalez-Sosa will be shortly. So that's good. And it has to be said that Monroe was BUFF JACKED RIPPED SHREDDED. I mean, it doesn't have to be, but we have to get to 150 words here.
