Photos: Andre Ward, Edwin Rodriguez Weigh-In Face Off

Photos by Chris Robinson / www.HustleBoss.com

WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs) had no trouble with the scale, but undefeated challenger Edwin Rodriguez (24-0, 16KOs) struggled to make the 168-pounds limit. Ward weighed 167.8-pounds at Friday's official weigh-in. Rodriguez, however, was pretty cut down and weighed two-pounds over the limit at 170-pounds. He has two hours to make the limit. The HBO televised fight takes place on Saturday night at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.

Looks like such a small event - not befitting the consensus #2 P4P fighter
