Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley are ready to go for Saturday night, as the two welterweights both looked ripped and cut and shredded and all that jazz on the scales today in Las Vegas, with Pacquiao weighing in at 145½, and Bradley at 146½.
Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KO) is supposedly fighting for the final time tomorrow night, facing a familiar foe in Bradley (33-1-1, 13 KO), a fighter he lost to with major controversy in 2012, and then defeated clearly in 2014. The 37-year-old Pacquiao also hasn't fought in 11 months, after a loss to Floyd Mayweather on May 2 of last year. Bradley last fought in November, dominating Brandon Rios.
Arthur Abraham (44-4, 29 KO) and Gilberto Ramirez (33-0, 24 KO) are set for their WBO super middleweight title clash, which is set for the co-feature slot on the show. Abraham and Ramirez both weighed in at 168 pounds even.
Top featherweight prospect Oscar Valdez (18-0, 16 KO) and former titleholder Evgeny Gradovich (21-1-1, 9 KO) made weight for their 10-round bout, as well. Valdez weighed in at 125½, with Gradovich at 126. And top junior welterweight prospect Jose Ramirez (16-0, 12 KO) weighed in at 138 pounds for the pay-per-view opening fight, facing Manny Perez (25-11-1, 6 KO) in a 10-round bout. Perez weighed in at 137½.
