We're good to go! Miguel Cotto and Sadam Ali took to the scales for their official weigh-in today in New York and both fighters were safely under the 154lb limit. In this fight Miguel Cotto will defend his WBO junior middleweight title, and fight for the final time in his illustrious career. You can catch the full video of the weigh-in above courtesy of Fight Hub TV.

Sadam Ali, who will be moving up to junior middleweight for this title shot, hit the scale first and weighed in a 153lbs even. He look pleased with his results.

Cotto was up next and weighed in a good bit under the 154lb limit, tipping the scales at a trim 151.6lbs. Cotto, with a stoic yet confident face, acknowledged the crowd who turned out for the event.

Both fighters looked to be in good condition so we should expect to get the best they've both got in this fight, even if the general consensus is that Cotto will just be too much for Ali. But, in the end, that's why they fight.
