Tomorrow night's Showtime action is good to go as both Danny Garcia and Brandon Rios made weight today in Las Vegas.
Brandon Rios was up to the scale first and weigh-in at 146.5lbs. And truth be told, he actually looked to be in pretty good shape all things considered! You could notice he's done things differently in camp and didn't look at all drained. Whether that'll be enough is another story, but it's a good start.
Danny Garcia came to the scale after and also weighed-in at 146.5lbs, looking fit and ready to go. Danny and Brandon both got into a verbal altercation during the ensuing face-off and had to be separated.
"I'ma do what I wanna do [in the ring]," Garcia said following the little brouhaha. "Like I said before, it's the Danny Garcia show...I'ma put him to sleep!"
"I can win [this] fight. I won my world title [going to war], why can't I beat Danny Garcia?" Rios responded. "He's nobody special. Everybody thinks he's somebody special, he ain't nobody special. I'm ready for this guy."
The co-feature bout had super middleweight Ronald Gavril weighing-in at 167 1⁄4 lbs . David Benevidez officially weighed-in at 167lbs but looked a little soft in the body.
For the undercard bout, Yordenis Ugas weighed-in right at the welterweight limit of 147lbs. Ray Robinson tipped the scale at 146lbs.
