Photos: Malignaggi, Broner More Heat at The Weigh-In

BoxingScene.com presents more photo coverage of today's weigh-in for Saturday's Showtime televised tripleheader from the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, New York. There was plenty of tension in the months leading up to this fight and the main event boxers had to be separated. An ex-girlfriend is caught in the middle, as she dated Paulie Malignaggi in the past and now she has sided with Adrien Broner and his camp.

In the main event, WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (26-0, 22KOs) will move up by two weight divisions to challenge WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (37-4, 7KOs). Broner came in at 146.8-pounds, while Malignaggi was 146.4.

In the co-feature, a heavyweight rematch between Seth Mitchell and Johnathon Banks. Mitchell weighed in at 243.6-pounds, while Banks was 216.8.

For the vacant WBC super middleweight title, Sakio Bika faces undefeated Marco Antonio Periban. Bika and Periban were both 167.8-pounds.
