Well - Broner must love the hot seat. Today's weigh-in saw Broner tip the scales at 140.4lbs in his birthday suit, while Ashley Theophane hit 140lbs right on the button. Broner now has approximately one more hour to make 140lbs even or he'll lose his world title on the scales. Broner has been in the headlines more for his legal troubles and public verbal jousting with Floyd Mayweather than he has for his boxing as of late.

Tomorrow night's fight is scheduled to take place at the DC Armory where Broner is the heavy betting favorite to retain his WBA junior welterweight belt. The undercard of the main event has Robert Easter Jr. taking on Algenis Mendez in a lightweight battle. Easter Jr. weighed-in at 133lbs with Mendez tipping the scale at 134.2lbs, making them both good to go for tomorrow night.

Anthony Peterson, also appearing on tomorrow night's undercard weighed-in at 137.8lbs. Samuel Neequaye, his opponent, tipped the scale 138.6lbs for their 140lb fight.
