Former lightweight titleholder Omar Figueroa missed weight today for tomorrow afternoon's PBC on CBS junior welterweight main event against Ricky Burns, but the fight will go on as planned. Figueroa weighed in at 141½ pounds, with Burns at 139.2.

Figueroa (24-0-1, 18 KO) was considered a big lightweight and had been rumored to struggle with making 135 pounds a few times over his career, which ultimately necessitated the move up in weight. 21 hours ago, Figueroa tweeted this out, which certainly doesn't look great in hindsight:

The co-feature fight is set, with both Tomoki Kameda (31-0, 19 KO) and Jamie McDonnell (25-2-1, 12 KO) both making weight for their bantamweight bout. And Austin Trout (28-2, 15 KO) weighed in at 157 pounds for a catchweight bout against Luis Galarza (20-3, 14 KO), who came in at 155½ and will be fighting on three days notice, replacing an injured Anthony Mundine.

We'll have live coverage of the show tomorrow afternoon at 4 pm EST.
