Canelo weighed in at 155-pounds, while Angulo was 154.5. It was announced by Jimmy Lennon Jr. that both fighters were allowed to weigh in at a max of 155.
WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz was 122-pounds, and former two-division champion/mandatory challenger Cristian Mijares was also 122-pounds.
In a lightweight battle for the vacant WBC International title, Sergio "Yeyo" Thompson weighed in at 135-pounds, and Ricardo Alvarez was also 135.
In a WBC lightweight eliminator, former champion Jorge Linares came in at 134.5, and Nihito Arikawa was also 134.5-pounds.
