Sergey Kovalev and Blake Caparello are fit and ready for Saturday's light heavyweight title fight at Revel Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Both fighters easily made weight for their HBO-televised headliner, which serves as the lead of a split site tripleheader. Kovalev and Caparello each tipped the scales at 174 lb.

The bout serves as the fourth straight appearance on HBO for Kovalev (24-0-1, 22KOs), including his second consecutive headliner on the network. The unbeaten Russian knockout artist makes his third defense of the title he violently snatched from Nathan Cleverly last summer in Wales.

Kovalev's most recent defense came in March, scoring a 7th round knockout of previously unbeaten Cedric Agnew, which also took place in Atlantic City.

Caparello (19-0-1, 6KOs) makes his HBO debut and also fights for a title for the first time in his career. The unbeaten Aussie appeared stateside for the first time in his career earlier this year, scoring a 10-round decision over Elvir Muriqi in West Orange, New Jersey.

FULL WEIGHTS
Sergey Kovalev, 174 lb. vs. Blake Caparello, 174 lb. - 12 rounds, light heavyweight
Isaac Chilemba, 175.5 lb. vs. Cory Cummings, 174 lb. - 10 rounds, light heavyweight
Sechew Powell, 148 lb. vs. Dmitry Mikhaylenko, 153 lb. - 8 rounds, super welterweight

Dang... so Kovalev kills to make weight, but he always looks fine and well under during the weigh ins

[QUOTE=Tyler_Durden]Now that the weights are in and the fight is set, I wonder how many rounds Caparello will be able to survive before being crushed by Kovalev.[/QUOTE] He is pretty durable, so i'd say he wont make it past 10 rounds.i do see him winning a few rounds though.

Now that the weights are in and the fight is set, I wonder how many rounds Caparello will be able to survive before being crushed by Kovalev.
