Photos/Weights: Adrien Hernandez vs. Janiel Rivera

By Jake Donovan

Adrian Hernandez and Janiel Rivera both made weight in advance of their 108 lb. title fight Saturday evening in Huixquilucan, Mexico.

Hernandez (28-2-1, 17KO) came in at the divisional limit of 108 lb. for what will serve as the fourth defense of the title he regained more than 15 months ago. Puerto Rico's Rivera came in at a trim and ready 107 lb. for his first title fight and just second overall fight in Mexico. 

Their scheduled 12-round title fight airs live on Televisa in Mexico. 

On the undercard, bantamweight contender Julio Ceja (25-1, 23KO) seeks his second straight win following last year's failed title bid as he faces Jesus Acosta (14-2-2, 10KO). Both fighters came in at 119 lb. for their scheduled 12-round bout. Ceja is angling for a shot at the winner of the upcoming 122 lb. title fight between Leo Santa Cruz and Cristian Mijares. 

Full weights:
Adrian Hernandez, 108 lb. vs. Janiel Rivera, 107 lb - 12 rounds for Hernandez junior flyweight title
Julio Ceja, 119 lb. vs. Jesus Acosta, 119 lb. - 12 rounds, bantamweights
Luis Ceja, 109 lb. vs. Saul Juarez, 109 lb. - 8 rounds, junior flyweight 
Irma Garcia, 115.75 lb. vs. Naziy Maldonando, 118 lb - 10 rounds for Garcia's bantamweight title

I've yet to see any fights in this weight division, so I guess I'll begin with this bout.

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg;14215602]Adrian Hernandez is actually really tall for his weight. He is listed at 5'8" and usually is much taller than his opponents. He towered over Kompayak Porpramook, who is about 5' even. But Rivera is surprisingly taller than Hernandez. I…
