Oakland, California - The weights are in for tomorrow's big HBO televised doubleheader. WBA/WBC super middleweight champion Andre Ward (25-0, 13KOs) weighed in at the 168 limit, while challenger Chad Dawson (31-1, 17KOs) was also 168-pounds on the nose. Dawson is the current WBC champion at light heavyweight and chose to move down to 168 to challenge Ward for his titles. Both fighters looked in great shape.
After they made weight, there were minor words exchanged as they came face to face.
WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (27-2-1, 20KOs) weighed in at 134.25, while challenger John Molina Jr. (24-1, 19KOs) weighed in at 134.5-pounds.
