Both Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin safely managed to weigh-in under the WBC’s 30-day limit of 176lbs yesterday, ahead of their scheduled September 15th world title rematch. WBC rules do not allow fighters to weigh more than 10% over the contracted fight limit for title bouts (which would be 16 pounds for a 160lb fight).

Canelo tipped the scale at a 167.4lbs for the sanctioning body’s check-in, one month before the showdown.

Meanwhile Golovkin tipped the scale slightly higher, but still well under the limit, when he weighed-in at 168.3lbs.

With both fighters well on track to make weight (which was more or less expected), the big middleweight showdown seems to be progressing rather smoothly, which is a stark contrast from all the uncertainty we’ve seen surrounding the fight this year.

Canelo and Golovkin now have a full month to shed roughly 8 pounds apiece, which really should be no big deal.
