Photos: Hopkins-Murat, Quillin-Rosado, Wilder Weigh-In
The weights are in for Saturday's Showtime televised tripleheader from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. In the main event, the near 50-year-old Bernard Hopkins will defend his IBF light heavyweight title against mandatory challenger Karo Murat of Germany. Hopkins came in at 172.5-pounds and Murat was 174.
In the co-feature, WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin will stake his title and undefeated record against Gabe Rosado. Quillin was 159.25-pounds and Rosado was 160.
Opening things up, a heavyweight battle between undefeated Deontay Wilder and Nicolai Firtha. Wilder came in at 224.pounds and the much heavier Firtha was 252.5
